School is fastly approaching and I'm not ready I wish school didn't start until the Tuesday after Labor Day. How great would that be? Since I am an OCD Organization junkie I have to get things in some kind of order or else I will be in derailed of the Krazy Trains tracks.
While doing some searching on new fun things I came across a blog that just said Im what your looking for. So check it out here. When I saw this project I knew it was for me and it looked fairly easy. I already had the sandwich boxes on hand so I grabbed them and threw out the ones with missing lids. While Maci was in cheer practice I skipped out and went to Walmart to grab what the chalk paint.
I wanted to buy the cheapest brush possible because I knew in this case it didn't matter so I went with a sponge brush. I took the chalk paint slapped it on let it dry then put another coat. It is still wet so I'm letting it dry then I will put it to the test. I even used the Wal-Mart bags my stuff came in to lay on the counter just incase I had an ooops Why waster a Hefty trash bag as high as those things cost.
Im a label maker, I bet you didn't know that huh? OCD, Organization Freak yes imagine me being a label maker. I went and made my labels for the girls to put on their school supplies. Why are school supplies so expensive? Don't they realize Momma needs some Frye Boots...#justsayin
Yes that is the bone collector in Maci's labels.
We all know it couldn't be pink or girlie so I fixed her right on up.
Last year I saw an idea on Pinterest and printed out these labels and saved them so this year all I needed to do was Change teacher and grade. I stick these to zip locks bags and then all I have to do is fill in the amount and what its for. (Lunch, field trip, party, etc.)
Getting a start on my Week to relieve some of the back to school stress.
Welcome back routine, the rat race and loads and load of homework
I always like doing something a lil special and fun on the first day of school so I went straight to my handy dandy Pinterest and found this idea and printed out my labels and Bam Im ready I will put them into their backpack and when snack time comes they will find these.
Do you have any back to school traditions, tips, tricks?
