We’re so excited for back to school! It’s one of Kid to Kid’s favorite seasons. The back to school trends are so cute this year. Read more about what’s popular for back to school in this blog. Here are some great ideas for getting back into the swing of school and cute ideas to brighten your kids’ day.
Add notes and jokes in lunches
We love this simple little idea to make your kid smile. Add cute notes and jokes to their lunchbox for a nice little surprise and a reminder of home. Get these cute fruit note printables for free from Happy Home Fairy. You can also draw on plastic bags with permanent markers and you can draw on paper bags too! Check out these adorable drawings one dad did on his kids’ lunch bags.
Plan weekly outfits for easy mornings
Check your local weather, then plan out your kids’ outfits for the whole week. This creates less of a morning hassle with outfit planning. Plus you can always make sure you can find a matching pair of socks! Finding that you need new clothes for your kid? Stop by Kid to Kid for some great kids’ fall fashions. Find your local store with our store locator.
Create a homework calendar
Constantly working with your kid on their homework last-minute? Create a homework calendar to track all the homework and when that homework is due. That means less last-minute homework cramming! You can create tons of easy DIY calendars including chalkboard and dry erase calendars. Check out this magnetic dry erase board DIY.
Hold a weekly backpack clean out
Backpacks are a catch-all for lots of old homework, teacher’s notes, lunch bags, and more. Plan a weekly backpack clean out at the end of each week. Take care of any trash and make sure all of next week’s homework is ready to go before the busy weekends hit.
Here’s to a successful and happy new school year from all of us at Kid to Kid!
