Back-to-School Survival Kit – for You and for Them

Glue? Check. Pencils? Check. Secret stash of dark chocolate? Check.

While you’re running around getting all the items on your kids’ back-to-school checklist, don’t forget to pull a few things together for yourself as well.

We’ve assembled a list of some tried-and-true heroes to help your family along this school year – for both in the classroom and at home. Download and print off this checklist, and we’ve even left a few blank spots so you can add some of your favorites.
