Brighten Up This School Year!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's that time of year again, where parents like me race around trying to find all the back to school supplies their kids need.  From backpacks to jump drives, these lists cover everything my kids could possibly need to make it through the school year.  I am looking forward to getting back into the routine of bedtimes and homework.  Brandi, my little smartypants, is looking forward to participating in her school's gifted program again this year.  This program challenges her mind and her imagination.  She is very creative (just like her mama!) and loves working on all the projects required for this class.  I try to make sure I keep a stock of craft supplies to help her make her projects beautiful.

AstroBrights papers are wonderful for school projects.  They come in 23 brillantly bright colors, which can help Brandi's projects stand out from the rest of her class.  Teacher's can use AstroBrights papers too for classroom decorations.  There are so many possibilities! Right now, AstroBrights is running a "Give A Brighter Year" sweepstakes on their Facebook page where you can enter to win $3000 for the school of your choice.  Just "like" the page and use the app to fill out your information, and if you win, not only does the school you chose get money, you walk away with some cash for yourself.  I know that I could use an extra $500 to help me buy all the school supplies my three kids need.

You chould also encourage your kids to participate in AstroBrights "Make Something AstorBright" design challenges.  Every two weeks they post another challenge on their Facebook page, and you can post your creations for a chance to win some cash.  Right now, they are running their "Get Going" challenge.  Make sure that when you share your creations on social media sites, you use the hastag #goastrobrights so others can see your beautiful works of art!
