BACK TO SCHOOL ORGANISATION TIPS FOR PARENTS
Parents, get ready to take on the new school year with these back to school organisation tips!
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® Picture Hanging Strips to hang calendars, noticeboards and to-do lists on the wall (perfect for keeping track of deadlines!)

MAKE A FAMILY ‘MISSION CONTROL’ CENTRE
When the new school year is in full swing, many parents find it tricky to keep on top of who’s doing what and who needs to be where, when. If this is you, have a go at making a family ‘mission control’ centre to keep track of everyone’s activities!
Choose an empty wall space (ideally in the kitchen or hallway) and hang up calendars, noticeboards and to-do lists with VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips. Check out this post for inspiration!
Set up a reading corner
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 favourite storybooks. Check out this post for inspiration!
