Back to School Recipes and Craft Ideas

Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for supporting COOKtheSTORY!

Here in Central Florida the kids are already back at school, which is why I’m delighted to be bringing you a week’s worth of back to school recipes and craft ideas from an amazing group of bloggers. Today I’m introducing the Back to School week and letting you know about some of the events that we have going on and about all of the amazing prizes.

Update: The TweetChat, PinChat, and giveaways have ended.


I am delighted to be a part of #BacktoSchoolWeek hosted by Rachel from {i love} my disorganized life and Miss Information. This week will help take the stress out of Back to School for all of us as bloggers from around the country post their favorite Back to School crafts and recipes.

As part of the Back to School Week we’ll be holding a TweetChat and a PinChat during #BacktoSchoolWeek, with prize giveaways during those as well!

The TweetChat is today so I’ll tell you about that now. I’ll save the PinChat details for later in the week.

(search for hashtag #BacktoSchoolWeek to follow along. Use the hashtag in
tweets during the chat to enter to win.)

1) One TweetChat winner will receive a set of two Mighty Handles. Mighty Handle is the easiest way to carry more grocery bags across a parking lot, walking in a neighborhood, up a flight of stairs or from your car into the house. The patent pending handle and anchor design system distributes weight evenly allowing you to carry up to 50 lbs of bags in one hand. Facebook Twitter

2) One TweetChat winner will receive a 6-piece set of Cuisinartstorage containers.The cabinet-friendly, modular design of Cuisinart’s new Fresh Edge™ Food Storage System is only one of the practical conveniences it offers. In addition to their space-saving stack ability, the dishwasher-,freezer- and microwave-safe units have a simple, two-step sealing process that creates a vacuum to preserve food. {Follow on Facebook&Twitter}

3) One TweetChat winner will receive a set of Keycals from Kidecals. It’s the fun way to organize with these stickers, labels and decals. {Follow on Facebook & Twitter}

4) One TweetChat winner will receive a Mini Cooler and a Personal Cooler from PackIt. PackIt keeps its contents cooler longer – up to 10 hours in fact – and it eliminates completely the need for ice or gel packs. {Follow on Facebook & Twitter}

    Man I wish I had been blogging when my hooligans were young. My daughter was so hard to pack a lunch for. Always fun to see other ideas.
