The school year was just about to start, waking up in the morning and getting four kids out the door before 7:30 sounded overwhelming. I decided that I need to be as organized as possible. My first thought was to have their clothes ready and planned out for the week. We made weekdays clothes organizers so it would be a no brainer in the morning when getting the kids dressed. This has also helped in teaching the girls the days of the week and the order of the days.
Here’s how we did it.
First, I let the girls pick out the color card stock they wanted. Then, we cut them into 4 x 6 inch rectangles. Next, we cut white card stock into 3 x 5 inch rectangles. I then had the girls write Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on the white 3 x 5 card stock. Next, using glue stick we layered the white card stock on the colored card stock. To make the card stock even stronger and prevent tearing I laminated them.
Next, I used a hot glue gun to attach the clothes pin to the back of the paper. I position the clip as closer to the top of the card stock as I could so they wouldn’t get hung up on the hangers.
They are now ready to be attached to the hangers.
Every Sunday after the laundry is finished the girls pick out their outfits for the week and there is no wondering what to wear on these early mornings.
