First Day of School Tradition – A Special Treat

Do you have any first day of school traditions?  On the first day of Kindergarten, we went to grab some ice cream afterwards and every year since so we have officially made it our first day of school tradition.  We eat pretty healthy around here but if you follow PWK you know that I love our little treats!  Here are some places to grab a special treat to celebrate the success of a first day of school!

TCBY – There are two locations – one at Bayou and one at 9 Mile Road.  We visited the new 9 Mile Road store and had yummy yogurt and fun family time this weekend.  This just might be where we end up this afternoon!  You could also try Baskin Robbins or Dolce!

Oh Snap! Cupcakes or the Cupcake Emporium – If you would rather have a cupcake, try one of these spots!

Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts – Grab a donut for the kids and enjoy a cup of coffee to keep you going for the rest of day.

How do you celebrate the first day?  I hope that everyone had a smooth first day of school!


  1. Hi! My son is starting pre-school this year and I will have to do this! I love “traditions” and have gotten some great ideas from your site. Your site is always the first I come to when I need ideas for crafts/things to do/bargains, etc. THANK YOU for always having great posts:-)

    We started the post first (and last) day of school ice cream “social” together when my oldest (almost 11 yrs) was in kindergarten! We love it! Today we went to Baskin Robbins and we share our worst and then best thing of our day!
