Back to School Craft Lightning

It's time for another great Craft Lightning.

This time it is Back to School Crafts in 15 minutes or less.

I gave some thought to what I wanted to do for this post.

What do parents and children struggle with when it is time to go back to school?

Organization and getting ready.

So I created this quick way for parents to help their child be responsible for getting ready in the morning.

All you need is:

 Some scrapbook paper or an old favorite book


Sharpie Marker

Dry Erase Marker

A clear plastic standing slide in picture frame

And some stickers of you wish.

Remove the paper from the frame and use it to mark and measure how big to cut your decorative paper.

Cut the piece to fit in your frame.

Write a checklist of tasks your child needs to complete each morning with the Sharpie marker.

Slide it into the acrylic frame.

Add stickers if desired.

Each morning have your child check off each task as it is completed.

I used the pages from a beloved book that literally fell apart.

You could use scrapbook paper, a family photo, or a favorite drawing.  

You can also write the checklist directly on the acrylic frame.

I chose to do it on the paper so the list can be easily changed as the child grows.

You can also change it for specific days of the week.

Thanks so much for stopping by....
