Having trouble remembering everything for swim class, Brownies or the race course? Not always reasonable to keep the bag packed for the next trip to the cottage?
Try the age old stand by – The List. Try making up a list for the kids for before school and posting a laminated copy beside the knapsack hook. It might include: lunch, drink money, libary books, gym clothes, agenda, instrument.
The great thing is they can be used for anything from heading off to dance class (keep it in the dance bag) to the sailing regatta (laminate a copy for the regatta box).
