Homework Bulletin Board

Each year when school begins, I have a need to reorganize. This year my first project was to come up with a system to keep track of my 3 school boys’ schedules. 

So after a little inspiration, this is what I did:
 
I customized three boards and hung them in my back entrance. Trying to keep track of 3 kiddo’s school papers & schedules can get quite overwhelming for me, so I decided maybe this would help me feel a little more organized.  

My boys each have scripture to memorize every week, so I write their verse on their own bulletin boards, that way they can see it daily. Any important weekly papers get attached to the magnet board. A Calendar helps me (and the boys) keep track of PE days, soccer days, days they have tests, etc. Under each board I hung some hooks for their backpacks.  

The 3 frames came from Craft Warehouse (on sale.)  I took the glass out of the frames underneath. I bought a couple of white erase board sheets (they are the peel-n-stick kind) also from Craft Warehouse, cut them down to size & attached it to the cardboard that was behind the glass. I did this to both of the bottom sections. I hot-glued buttons to plain magnets to make my magnets a little cuter.  

I created the calendar in Microsoft Publisher, printed them & clipped them onto my magnet clip. The letters on the clips I had,  painted them and hot-glued them on. The Backpack Hooks also came from Craft Warehouse.  I bought 3 square blocks of wood (you know the unstained pieces you can buy at Craft Warehouse) & some decorative hooks, attached them (I liked the blocks at a diamond shape), painted both the block & the hook & attached them to the wall.   
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this setup. It’s been working GREAT!

As much as I do LOVE this area, I have since updated it to work better for my family.  GO HERE to see the new area.

  4. 3 out of 4 of my kids are grown-up & gone ~ this would have worked out perfectly! They don't have children yet, but when they do I know what to make them when their kids start school!
    Excellent idea!
    P.S. I'm new to your blog & I'm hooked!
