- kids organizing kit (HERE is the previous post about this)
- school supply list
Take the clipboard out of the kids kit and attach the school supply list. Grab the bags of supplies you have purchased and check each item off as you put it in the tote. Now it is time to pack the bookbag. Keep that list out because now is the time to recheck the list as you put items into the bag. Even Santa checks his list twice!
A couple other things you might want to organize before that first day of school. Think about making a lunch schedule if you pack lunches and making each menu the evening before. Gather a few things into an old shoe box near your door the evening before school starts.
- notepad & pen
- list of things your child needs because we know it is unlikely everything fit in the backpack
Hopefully this will help you not panic about forgetting something and make that first day of school enjoyable!
