Fresh pencils and the perfect lunchbox, new clothes and the hottest notebooks. In the winding down of summer as we head into fall, a variety of celebrities time traveled back to childhood, sharing favorite moments preparing for the first day of school.

"I went to a military school. Oddly enough, every fall when it came up, the idea of putting on the uniform and going back to school was very exciting," recalls Joe Morton of ABC's Scandal.

For Katy Mixon, who stars in ABC's American Housewife, it was all about the duds.

"Going clothes shopping. I grew up in a family of seven, six girls and one boy. My mama used to always take us to go get those back-to-school clothes, and I loved it."

Kelly McCreary of ABC's Grey's Anatomy was all about the paper products.

"I still love a great new notebook. Super nerd," she says.

Her fellow cast member, Jason Winston George, had other favorite gear.

"Lunchboxes. It was all about the new lunchboxes and the backpack. Lunchbox and backpack, that was my joint," he says.

Ian Ziering, who stars in Syfy's Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, has passed down one of his parents' back-to-school traditions to his two kids.

"It's taking a picture in front of the house, in front of the front door. We do it every year with my kids with a little sign: Kindergarten, first day of kindergarten, first day of first grade. It's great. I have that from my childhood and now my kids have that," he says. "It's just a great picture to look back on."

Kaitlyn Dever, in the summer film Detroit, says it was all about first-day fashion.
