Back-to-school season is here and families are scrambling to get ready for the new school year. Being organized for back to school can be easier with a little help from the internet. Over the years I’ve created several printables that will help you to manage your morning routines, school lunches, and even meal planning for those busy nights. In this post, you will find back-to-school printables to help you get organized and have the best year yet!
Going from carefree summers back into a regular schedule is difficult for children of all ages. Even my teenagers struggle with this transition. Let’s be honest, the schedule change is difficult for parents too.
Creating and practicing daily routines or rhythms helps children to learn how to manage their time, gives them predictability so they know what to expect, and allows them to become more independent.
When you download the morning routine chart you will receive two different styles to use.
After School can be just as hectic as mornings so I’ve also created an after-school routine chart. My kids would come in the door and dump all of their backpacks, lunch boxes, and coats in the middle of the living room and head straight for the snacks.
Creating an after-school routine for them really helped them to know what the expectations are so they don’t leave a disaster in their wake every day.
Getting enough sleep on school nights is more important than ever during these first few weeks of school. I found my bedtime routine chart to be one of the most useful tools to help teach my children good habits before bed and help them create a routine that helps them to wind down each night. When you download the bedtime routine chart you will receive two styles to use.
Making school lunches doesn’t need to be a struggle. A little organization goes a long way. Having a list of ideas for your child’s school lunches will help make packing lunches easier. This list will help you provide your kids with yummy and healthy lunches to help them get through the day.

Food Storage and Stockpiling are not just for emergencies. Our food stockpile helps us have our most used food items on hand at all times. From pantry foods to filling our freezer; having an inventory helps me to shop less and plan meals around what we already have.
