Not all kids love the idea of going back to school, because it means that summer has to end! Nycia Emerson with Inspired Events & Designs stopped by Studio 512 to give us some tips on getting kids excited for the new year.

Nycia is known for her tablescapes — and back-to-school is no different! Celebrating the small things can get kids to look at the bright side of all the fun to come. Nycia shows us how to do a DIY lunch and backpack tag, too.
