First you’re going to want to get ready for school. Have a lot of books this year? Why not make your own backpack to keep them in! Scared of the cafeteria food? Bring your lunch in from home with your very own homemade lunch bag!
Once you get to school, you’ll get to brush up on all of your favorite subjects like reading and math and magic… what’s that? They don’t teach magic at school? Well they do now! Our buddy Ryan Oakes is accepting students for the ATV School of Magic, where he’ll teach you all kinds of cool school-themed magic tricks! Learn a little lunch money magic to have extra money for a snack at recess, or make your extra school supplies disappear with the amazing vanishing paper clip trick!
With all of these cool back to school activities, you’ll be all to eager to get back to class. Check them out for yourself and have a great school year!

Chante from MD wrote that my V is for Valentine Cartoon is a wonderful Valentines Day gift idea. Thanks for bringing that up! A sketch like this is great for making your own greeting card. When you create a card for someone in your family or one of your friends, it says that you must really care about them because you took time to make one rather than buy one at the store.
Speaking of creating your own greeting cards from your cartoon drawings, that is just what Savanna from FL said about the S is for Santa Claus Cartoon. This cartoon all started with the letter S that I turned into Santa. This is called a Doodle Trick. Cartooning with numbers and letters is a blast!!!! The key is to build on what that number or letter presents to you in the way of possibilities. For example, the bottom part of the letter S worked great for Santa’s nose, while the top part worked nicely for his eyebrow. Coming up with different ideas for the same letter is the way to develop your “Cartoonist” eye!!
