Organizing Life… for School

We are beginning kindergarten with two of my kiddos and I’d love to tell you I have our learning routine or system together… but I don’t! This past week, I scoured the internet in search of tips to help us as we adapt to a life of learning with kiddos in preschool and kindergarten. Here are a few of the “must-do-one-day” tips I have found. KinderCare is asking moms across the country to share tips that have helped them and their kiddos adjust. I’d love for you to share your tips in the comments.

Organization tips for back to school

A Little Delightful has a great printable to help you plan lunchboxes. No more eating PB&J three days in a row!

I Heart Organizing has a great snack system. In her fridge she keeps a basket full of snacks for lunches and for after-school treats.

DownTown created a list of tons of great, healthy snacks. We are on the go a lot more during the school year and snack more often. So many great suggestions to tide us over.

Does your preschooler come home with hundreds of papers, projects and artworks? Mine do! I love this “binder plan” from MondoCherry.

Organization tips for back to school

Organizing our preschool really means organizing my life. A mom over at SheIsDallas uses a household notebook to neaten her life.

We have a craft closet that is exploding – and I love this idea from I Can Teach My Child. She uses a hanging clear shoe holder to organize supplies. No more hunting for colored chalk!

…and lastly my favorite! This is a mom of all boys… one starting kindergarten this year… and I just love how she organized her “school” closet – wish I could replicate it!
