Back to School Blast giveaway ends 8/15

Welcome to the Back to School Blast!

Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.

1. Back-to-School Supplies Checklist - Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.

2. Prepare Snack Cupboard/Fridge section - Shop for great back to school snacks either already portioned like granola bars or portion out things like dried fruit in baggies or small containers. Store them in your pantry and kids can choose items for lunch. This works great in the fridge for cut up fruits and veggies. Use bigger storage containers to keep it all organized. 

3. Let your kids be involved in the process. This can be as simple as choosing foods they like to eat, having input on supply and clothing purchase.

4. Stay in touch with the teacher. Personally I like emailing as I can send questions no matter what time of the day (or night) and I have a record of the conversations.

The Back to School Blast was organized by Mom Powered Media.
