Thank you to Tiny Prints for providing myself and a winner with personalized back to school supplies. All words and opinions are mine.

The last few days of summer vacation are dwindling away, and the lazy days of summer are about to turn busy as schools go back in session.  Whether your child is heading off to school for the first time, is returning for their last year, or falls somewhere in between your calendar is likely going to be full of sports practices, after school activities, concerts, school project deadlines and more.  It can get even trickier if you have kids of multiple ages, in different schools, all with their own activities taking place simultaneously.  We try and keep on top of things with phone apps and synced calendars, but sometimes you just need to write things down in a central location.

Guess who can help with that?  Tiny Prints!  Tiny Prints has always been one of my favorite retailers for personalized cards.  We ordered Bubbles’ birth announcements from them and received dozens of compliments.  Their Christmas cards are beautiful, too.  But they also have a pretty extensive line of supplies to help the entire family stay organized.

Thank you to Kidecals for providing us labels for keeping kids organized this summer.  All opinions are mine.

Summer break is something that nearly every child looks forward to.  There are dreams of lazy days, swimming, trips to the zoo, and just hanging out with their friends.  There isn’t much structure in the summer, and that’s half the joy.

With the loss of school-days structure, though, can come a desire to shed the structure of general home rules, too.

Here are five tips for keeping kids organized through the summer months and in all their summer activities (and beyond).
