Bonus! Check out these back to school tips for more ideas on how to make this back to school season awesome!

School Shop with a Grocery Pick Up or Delivery Service. Perhaps the most genius back-to-school idea is to have someone else shop for you. Enter services like Target’s Back To School List Assist which allows you to find your school’s supply list by grade on Target’s site, shop it, and have it delivered or ready for pick up. Say adios to lines and hello to convenient school supplies!

Create a Morning Checklist: A new grade brings new responsibility! Make the mornings fun and fuss-free with a framed checklist for your kiddo. They can mark off tasks each morning, and wipe the glass clean for the next day. Print yours here!

Reconnect with other parents: Reach out to the parents of your child’s school friends and offer to be there when needed, and ask for help early on so you know who you can turn to during the school year. Remember, it takes a village!

Schedule a visit to the doctor’s office: Get your child’s physical out of the way before schedules amp up and update any needed vaccinations. This is also a great time to address any social or emotional concerns that may affect the upcoming school year!

Read to your child: Most parents spend time reading to babies and toddlers, but did you know that most school-aged kids (ages 6-11) still enjoy read-aloud time too? Bond with your child and prepare for the school year when you cozy up with a good book together.
