About a week ago, I realized I was repeating the same things to my youngest daughter before and after school. Have you brushed your teeth? Did you do your homework? Did you remember to pack your lunch? If only I took the time to create a school days checklist that she could just look at and check off, it would save us all so much time.
That same morning, I had to drive my oldest daughter to high school. She was running late and rushed out of the door with her breakfast in one hand, her lunch on her arm, and her shoes and socks in the other hand. We got halfway there when she realized she had forgotten her backpack. Her backpack! The one obvious thing that you need every time you go to school.
So on the way back home to get her backpack, knowing that she would be late for school now, I told her about my plan to make a school days checklist. She agreed that it would be a great idea and suggested I offer it to you as well (because we can’t be the only ones who needed one.
I split this school days checklist into two sides. One for before school and one for after school. You can print one for each day of the week. If you want to save paper, you can save the file on a device and have your child go down the list daily to ensure they’ve done everything.
Since everyone’s routine is different, I added some blank lines so that you can add anything that I may have missed. If I’ve included something you don’t need, just cross it off, or have your child ignore it.
If you want to take this further, you can reward your child for completing the weekly checklist. Add a sticker or get them a special treat at the store. That part is totally up to you!

Oh, these sure look handy to have! A checklist can be a big help on school days
I really like how colorful and popping the checklist is!
This is such a really great and effective idea! This so perfect for my kids! Thanks for sharing this with us!
I love this idea but I already know my son would turn up his nose to it. Boys will be boys at age 11.
I love this! Such a great idea to keep the kiddos organized.
Check lists are so important. My kids need to see all the things organized because they’re so overwhelmed at the beginning of the year.
This is great for small kids! I know it would have benefited mine greatly when they were younger.
