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 and help from Target, 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.

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.
Excitement, anticipation, pride, nervous energy, and maybe even a little sadness are just some of the emotions families experience at back to school time. Back to school shopping really kicks things off, even with the first day of school still some time away.
Target brings fresh energy and attitude to life with school supplies that are affordable, important, and make looking cool for back to school easy. It’s a win for kids and moms! Target makes back to school shopping fun and less stressful for everyone!
My daughter will be away at camp for a couple of weeks in August so we headed to Target this week to pick up some of the back to school supplies we knew we’d need. Target has a huge Back to School supply section.
My kids were drawn to the big selection and colorful supplies. They might love school supplies as much as most kids love toys!
There were so many things my kids found that they wanted and needed. It’s early enough that we haven’t received our official school supply list from their teachers yet but Target’s School List Assist is a great reminder of what the most needed school supplies are for K-8. You can make your list online and have supplies shipped right to your door or you can pick up your back to school supplies in store. School List Assist makes finding the supplies you need as easy as 1-2-3!
We found everything on our list which was fantastic. The kids were able to pick what they needed in colors and styles they wanted. My daughter found a colorful binder and chose other supplies to match including a pencil bag, pencils, erasers, and sticky notes.
My son and daughter both found water bottles, lunch bags, and back packs that they loved. What they had last year is showing some serious wear so I was happy they found items they loved at prices I loved! They also each picked magnets and a mini dry erase board calendars for their lockers. My daughter is really looking forward to returning to school and has already started filling in her calendar!
Target makes going back to school easy.
