Back to School Checklist

25 Jul

school

It’s still summer, but I am already thinking about back-to-school.  Every store you go into, back-to-school supplies are everywhere!  Every year I feel a little overwhelmed trying to make sure I’ve covered everything for back-to-school.  I’ve made a checklist I follow to help me organize my thoughts and everything I need to get my kids ready.  Keep in mind my list is for grade school and middle school aged kids.

Back to School Checklist

  • Physical / Sports Physical.  Every state has different rules on what they require, but make sure you book these in advance so you get them done in time.
  • Dental and eye exam.  Again, every state is different, but many require current dental and eye exams on file for different ages.
  • Backpack.  If you are using a backpack from last year, wash it in the gentle cycle and hang dry it so it’s fresh for the new school year.  Otherwise, make sure you invest in a quality backpack that can handle all their books, lunches, snacks, jackets and gym shoes.
  • School Supplies.  Schools provide a list of needed items – but it’s best to shop early so you get your choice of items.  Sometimes stores run out of certain color binders or certain brands.
  • Gym shoes.  You always need a pair of gym shoes … whether you keep them at school or wear them on gym days, your child will need a pair that fits well.
  • Lunch bags.  I make sure I have two lunch bags for each child.  The reason is that in case they forget it one day at school, there’s always a back-up.
  • Bag tags.  I have personalized bag ID tags for my kids backpacks and sports bags.  They are a great way to label your kids backpacks and sports bags and can serve double duty as luggage tags for Spring Break!
  • Water bottles.  I give my kids their own personalized water bottles so they can stay hydrated all day.
  • Clothes.  Whether you kids love or loathe clothes shopping, it’s always good idea to get a few new items to freshen up their wardrobe.

What other things would you add to the checklist?  I would love to hear what items are “must have” back-to-school items for your family.

xoxo,

Jennifer

P.S.  One last tip … label everything!
