What are some fun and easy ideas for a back to school party?

In summary, for a back to school party, it's best to stick with easy and kid-friendly recipes. Popular options include mini quiches, fruit skewers, homemade granola bars, and sandwich pinwheels. Creative decorations can include DIY chalkboard menus, apple-shaped balloons, and incorporating school supplies. Activities can include making personalized pencil cases, trivia games, and outdoor games. To keep costs down, use items you already have and ask guests to contribute supplies. It's up to the host whether to invite parents and if so, plan activities or refreshments for them as well.
Okay everyone, I have searched the files and bounced off some ideas from previous posts but I want some actual ideas....
I am considering a back to school party- but am thinking of doing it as a Facebook show because I know the one day I choose not everyone will be able to commit to (we have sports started and school in just a few weeks...) I am thinking of doing this as a Mystery Host show so that will get some excitement.
I plan on posting tips and recipes for quick dinners, snacks, and of course packed lunches.
I was thinking of doing a video of me making some kind of chicken in the stoneware...all i have is the mini baker so obviously not a whole chicken... plus i want a seasoning that kids would love. Any ideas here????
Plus i know i want to post things about the fruit and cheese cutters and the cut and seal... anything else?? I want sales so the host will have a good amount of rewards so any tips or recipes will be appreciated!
 
I think show casing any quick to fix recipes is good for back to school. It's always chaotic. There are certain items that make me think particularly of back to school.
Apple Wedge--I use it so much to pack lunches, plus I saw a picture (can't find it now) of an apple wrapped with is for a teacher's gift.
Tool turn about for school supplies!
Brownie pan for snacks and lunches. I'd use it for granola bars for breakfast on the go. :)
The Sandwich press to make sandwiches like the frozen ones.
 
Fruit and Cheese Cutters for sure and Creative Cutters maybe.
