Kicking off the school year right…

August 30, 2010

With school starting up we loved the article in Family Fun’s September issue – “25 Tips for a Better School Year”.  Here are just a few of our favorites – to see them all grab a copy of the September issue of Family Fun.

4. Craft a can’t-miss reminder.  Glue a pad of mini sticky notes to a clothespin, clip it to their back packs and write reminders on them such as – take lunch from fridge, grab band instrument, remember gym shoes etc…

**another idea we also love – use dry erase markers to write messages and reminders on the bathroom mirrors!**

11. Spiff Up Sandwiches.  We love the mom invented Puzzle Bites Crustless Sandwich Cutter.  

16. Give paperwork a place to hang out.  Use a clipboard to hang on the wall in the kitchen, mudroom or wherever – one for each family member to house order forms, permission slips, invitations etc…

19. Put art on digital display.  Take a picture of your kids art work that they bring home and display it on your digital frame.  This reduces the clutter of papers all over the place and lets you enjoy their work for a long time!

    I LOVE the digital photo frame idea for kid’s artwork! I have never seen so much paper in my house – and of course the sentimental hoarder that I can be…gotta keep most of it!
