It seems like summer just began, but the new school year, with the same old back to school routines, is just around the corner. The seemingly never ending back to school shopping lists (filled with paper, pencils, backpacks, school clothes and more) along with the shift back to a school year routine, and kids filled with nervousness and excitement might leave us moms at our wit’s ends. But this year can be different! With a handy Dry Erase Back to School Evening Checklist, the back to school transition can be as easy as a-b-c!
First, you can print out our free printable Back to School Evening Checklist that turns into a dry erase checklist. (How handy is that?!)
Dry Erase Back to School Evening Checklist
- photo frame
- dry erase marker and eraser (or cloth)
- printed copy of our Back to School Evening Checklist
This Dry Erase Back to School Evening Checklist is such an easy project and will make your routine so much easier!
Simply print out our colorful checklist and place it in a photo frame. A document frame is perfect since it is meant to hold an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper but a regular 8″ x 10″ frame will work too.
Just right click on our Evening Checklist Printable to save and print one of your own.
The glass of the photo frame works just like a dry erase board. A dry erase marker lets you and your child check things off one by one.
Homework done? Check Reading Minutes 20 Backpack Packed? Check Clothes and Shoes Ready for tomorrow? Check Bath or Shower Taken? Check In Bed on Time Check…Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday check check check check check!
Display the DIY Dry Erase Back to School Checklist where it’s easy and convenient for you and your child to use like on the kitchen counter, the family desk, or near the door.
This is so clever and efficient, and also fun! I love it, and wish I’d had something like it when my kids were little. I had four kids in a total of five years, so it was pretty much chaos ALL the time. That’s stressful!
I can’t even believe that it is back to school time! I think this list that you made is a GREAT idea and I think I will be doing something like this in my house for this school year!

I love this idea! What a great way to keep kids motivated. They can see what day of the week it is and what is next on their schedule. Definitely pinning!

This is such a great idea! I really want my kids to be more independent so I feel like this could help out.
Dee Mauser says
What a nice and organized way to keep track of your child’s school work and other tasks.

I absolutely LOVE this checklist! It covers everything you need in a concise way.
I love the checklist. I’m sure it comes in handy when you have more than 1 kid in school and it keeps them organized throughout the week.
Nicole B says
I love shopping for school supplies. Target has all the fun stuff! Love your checklist, too. My kids need to be reminded to do those things every school night – I’m going to print this out for each of them!
Vera Sweeney says
This would be perfect for my older two kids! They love to be independent but they still need some reminders of what they need to do.
Andrea Kruse says
Such a clever idea! I just adore dry erase uses. My kids really need this to remember to do their morning tasks. 🙂

Checklists are essential in our house. Having a checklist makes it so much easier for my boys to stay on track…and myself!

This is super cute. I’ll have to make one for each of my school age girls!

It seems like kids are so much more eager to participate when you can turn it into a game! Thanks for the tip!

This is a fantastic idea. I am always so rushed in the morning. I always feel like someone is missing something.

This is a really cute idea! I need to get something like this set up for our oldest, who is in 4th grade. He needs to be reading everyday and practicing his spelling words, so this is a great visual reminder!
Lena Burkut says
I need one of these things and for every day of the week, but i can see how my kids can use it too
Lynne Greenwell says
I saw your post on Pinterest! What a great idea! I was wondering if you might be able to alter it for me, as I home school my kids. I am willing to pay you for your time.
Thanks a bunch!
