Summer is drawing to a close, school is looming on the horizon, and the time has come to gather all the necessary supplies… pencils, notebooks, binders, glue sticks… the list goes on further than I’d like. It’s also time to pull out last year’s backpack and assess the need to upgrade to something bigger, or purchase that special first backpack for your preschooler. Check out our backpack roundup for some great options for your student this fall!
School mornings can get hectic at our house, especially if I need to spend time following the kids around, nagging reminding them to get dressed, brush their teeth, find their shoes and backpack, etc. I recently came across this Morning Routine Chart on How Does She, and thought Eureka! This is exactly what we need to help the kiddos be more independent! I made a few tweaks of my own, and came up with this Back to School Morning Checklist.
