Pinterest Round-Up: Getting Organized for Back to School

The return to school can easily creep up on us and catch us off guard. We've taken the time to round-up some of the best tips on Pinterest to make sure that you and your family are organized for the first day back.

Pinterest Round-Up: Getting Organized for Back to School

1. Create a Homework Station (Polkadot Chair)

We think this is such a great way to make doing homework a little more exciting. After a day of school, it can be hard to convince your kiddos to sit down and complete all of their homework tasks. Creating a new homework station is such a fun way to add some motivation!

2. Back to School Organization (Bebe a la Mode Designs)

If you have several children it can be especially difficult to keep backpacks, coats, files, books, and permission slips organized. We love this simple set up. It completely declutters the hallway, and makes leaving the house in the morning so much easier.

 3. Dry Erase Back to School Charts (The 36th Avenue)

Getting your children involved with managing their responsibilities during the school year is a great way to help foster independence and accountability. These dry erase charts are perfect to help children monitor their progress each day.

4. Meal Planning Board(Play Party Plan)

Keeping track of meals is hard enough, but with the added time restraints of school routines it is even tougher. Why not try using a meal planning board to help you stay organized, and ensure a healthy diet for the whole family.

5. After School Routine Clock (Mommy Moment)

How cool is this idea?! It can be difficult for children to make sudden changes to their routine. Having this visual prompt every weeknight would be such a help for an easier transition.
