1. Set up for Success
While going to class curled up on the couch or snuggled up in bed sounds like a dream, setting aside a designated spot to work or study is key! Studies show that our brains begin to associate certain places with the activities performed there. So keep relaxation zones, such as the bed and couch, separate from your working zones. This will make it easier for kids to focus.
Setting up a study area based on your child's personal interests helps give them a sense of ownership over it. Pick a theme or favorite color and decorate the space. Notebooks, desks, and other accessories can all be personalized in a variety of ways. You can even craft some items together as a fun way to get into the back-to-school spirit!
Does your child love science or space? Get galactic with some of these space-age crafts!

3. Organize and Declutter
Organizers are a great way to keep desk clutter-free. Having a clean workspace helps limit distractions and keeps their minds free to focus on learning.
This Glittery Color-Block Organizer is a fun way to transform plain wood into something unique. Ask your kids to pick their favorite colors for extra personalization. Or if you have scrapbook paper laying around, you can use our Americana Decou-Page for a quick decoration.
4. Have some fun!
Typical classrooms have posters, hands-on activities, and colorful decorations. Don't be afraid to do this at home! Paint some wall art, decorate a water bottle, or stencil a fun design on their desks.
No matter what back-to-school looks like for you there are plenty of ways to get creative and crafty!
