6 Crafting Projects That Will Get You And Your Kids Ready To Go Back To School

It’s that time of year when millions of children trudge back to school for the start of a new year.  New school supplies, new teachers, new clothes, new classmates — it can be overwhelming for everyone involved, even parents.

But like anything else, Pinterest is full of plenty of ideas that’ll help you and your kids prepare for the new year and get excited for it too.  Try out some of these crafts to start of this school year in the prettiest, most organized way possible.

1.Create a homework station.

Find a spot in your home with plenty of table space and assemble everything the kids might need to do their homework.  Having a dedicated place for homework will put them in the right mindset for working, and having all the supplies ready and waiting will help the kiddos avoid distractions because they’re looking for a pair of scissors or some colored pencils.

2. A school “command center” will keep everyone organized.

This is immensely helpful for kids and grown ups.  Have a place with an easy to read calendar, slots for holding papers that need to be signed, a clock, and whatever else your family needs to help keep them organized.  It’ll be incredibly useful to have a spot where you can quickly glance around and get all the information you need.

3. Designate a drawer for packing lunches.

If you have an easy-to-reach drawer that’s stocked with plastic baggies, disposable silverware, napkins, and pre-packaged snacks, the kids will be able to help pack their own lunches.  It’ll save you tons of time.

4. Invest in closet organizers to save time.

Lay out every outfit for Monday through Friday, put them in their appropriate spots and save yourself the morning insanity of trying to find socks and shirts and pants for the kids to wear to school.

5. Make sure every child has a spot for his or her things.

It’ll inspire them to stay more organized if they have their own hook for their backpack, their own shelf to put things, and maybe even their own little board to hang good grades and show off their accomplishments.

6. Keep important papers organized

Some papers are important to hang onto for the duration of the school year, but not necessary to file for years to come.  With that in mind, a plastic file box from the office supply store will suffice.  Use one for each child if you want, or combine them, so long as you label the folders by teacher, subject, or what kind of papers they are.
