For many children returning to school, starting nursery or Kindergarten it can be an exciting time, a new era in their school life chapter. But this may not be the case for all. Due to the global pandemic, a significant number of children will have been away from the school environment for many month and there will be those children who will be feeling anxious or even frightened. 

Schools and their dedicated teachers will be working hard to ensure that the children feel confident and comfortable to return, especially with all the new procedures that they will need to follow to ensure everyone's safely. 

Back to School is a major business for many retailers - school uniforms, creative stationary and fancy lunch boxes are part of the merchandise that is important in this time.

As balloon professionals we can offer other ways to bring a little fun and excitement to a child's first day back at school, helping to make it a happy and memorable experience!

Balloons at Home

In most households, there is a mandatory first day of school photo, usually taken outside the house on the doorstep. However, this year, families are looking to make this occasion even more special! Offering 'Back to School' balloon decor and arrangements will certainly bring a smile to any child or teenager's face, and make them feel super special too! 

Amy Broadley of Balloonies Falkirk, in Scotland, has had great success offering beautifully decorated Bubbles to her customers when their children returned to school earlier this month.

Welcome Back to School - Balloon Decòr

A simple yet effective dècor option is greeting the children back to school with fabulous 'Welcome Back' balloon decòr. We all know that balloons create a sense of excitement and expectation when attending an event or party, so the same would definitely apply at school too! 

Luc Bertrand, CBA, of WaW Balloons in Vichte, Belgium shares some of his Back to School inspiration using a combination of Qualatex and Northstar Balloons.

Balloon Mosaic style of decor is very popular and definitely on-trend. These 'Back to School' frames are simply perfect. Their diversity allows them to be used as part of a display, or maybe used in a Balloon Wall or Balloon Arch design.

Giving a child a balloon on the day that they start or return to school is a simple way to get their year off to a happy start. It creates a fresh start for a new academic year! Even more, decorating schools with welcoming balloon decor may become a popular annual event, and one that would definitely be worth preparing for and marketing every year.

And let us not forget the teachers! It will also be a strange and challenging time for them also. So how about showing teachers thanks and appreciation for being dedicated to their job, without doubt they will love being remembered! 

Cam Woody designed this heartfelt 'Thank You' design with added messages and cool little touches all neatly presented in a little wooden crate.

While there are many schools that have already returned to school, there are still those who are still on summer breaks or in lockdown, so hopefully there will still be opportunities!

Happy ballooning everyone!
