Back to School Organization Tips for Parents

Parents, get ready to take on the new school year with these back to school organization tips!     

Set up a reading corner 

Reading Corner with Space Tested Badge

Encouraging children to read can be challenging but you can make it easier by creating a fun, inviting reader corner! 

Find a quiet corner of the house and make it appealing for kids with comfy cushions to sit on and shelves filled with their favorite storybooks. Check out this post for inspiration! 

Make a homework station 

A dedicated homework area, away from the distractions of the rest of the house, is always a good idea. 

Put a desk in a quiet area of the house and stock it up with stationery (restricting the items on the desk to essentials only). Then use VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Removable Wall Fasteners to hang calendars, noticeboards and to-do lists on the wall (perfect for keeping track of deadlines!)
