In this post: 2017 Back 2 School pics. Our Back 2 School Luau with fun games and yummy food! Also, Back 2 School Eve and 7th-grade curriculum.
Hello, Dear Ones! This is the second of my latest Back 2 School posts. Michael is now in 8th grade so this is actually from last year. Leeland had Tot school & really kept busy. He was two years old then! We did a delicious Pizza Party for 6th grade, but for 7th grade, we had a nice Luau. Here’s how we did it!
- The Set– Leis, pineapple lanterns, palm trees, and grass skirts. I got all of these from Dollar Tree. Some of them I had left over from another party.
Mickey dressed up and showed off the Tot school area. It used to be my office.
- Food- I got my tableware and the bucket at Dollar Tree. We had a feast!
- Pineapple Luau Punch– https://www.chef-in-training.com/pineapple-punch/
Hawaiian Cheesecake Salad– It didn’t chill quite right but it was still tasty. https://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2017/04/hawaiian-cheesecake-salad.html
Ham sandwiches, chips, and Pineapple Upside Down Mini Cakes– http://www.toprecipeblog.com/2014/03/mini-pineapple-upside-down-cakes.html
