Home: Five ways to trick out your backpack for school
For me, one of the perks of going back to school every fall was getting to start the year with a brand spanking new backpack. The thing about backpacks, though, is that most are not too exciting to look at. They’re usually plain or utilitarian or they have cartoon characters emblazoned on them.
This year, instead of sending the kids off with another boring backpack, try customizing the bags to reflect their interests. A backpack is a blank canvas (literally, backpacks are made of canvas). And there are so many fun and easy ways to decorate them, as you can see here. All the embellishments can be purchased at crafts stores and party stores.
