If there’s any time of year that makes us feel motivated and ready to achieve things, it’s back to school season! There’s just something about seeing everyone get their supplies together and gather the things they’ll need for learning that makes us feel like we’re capable of just about anything too. That’s why we’re always helping our kids figure out awesome new DIY hacks to make back to school time easier, just like we used to do for ourselves when we were students! We might not be in school anymore, but we always have our eyes open for awesome crafty school hack ideas.
1. DIY EOS lip gloss highlighter
Highlighters are always a handy study tool to have around, but what if you’re trying to establish a cuter, more cheerful supplies scheme this year in order to keep yourself feeling motivated to study this year? Well, if you’re the kind of person who loves fun lip glosses and cute trinkets, we have a feeling you’ll really enjoy the way Kimspired DIY turned an empty EOS lip gloss into a small, rounded highlighter!
2. DIY back to school survival kit
Do you actually have a friend or family member who is going back to school for the first time in a while (or maybe just after the summer) and you have a feeling they could use a light hand getting some of the basics together because you know they can be a little scattered in the classes department? Well, Mom Unleashed have labelled this awesome survival kit idea as being one that’s fit for middle school but, honestly, we could have used these things in just about any year of study, and so could the current students we know!
3. Personalized back to school notebooks
Have you found yourself with a little bit of spare time before your classes start because you were slightly more organized than you thought you’d be in your school prep process, so now you’re thinking about customizing some things? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Momtastic made these fantastic notebooks by personalizing them with patterned fabric and paper!
4. DIY homework caddy
Were you a pretty big fan of the compact, well put together school survival kit idea but the student in your life has more trouble stay focused on and prepared for homework than they do actual classes? Then perhaps you’d do them a better service by putting together this DIY, fully stocked homework caddy from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry for them! Keep it on the corner of their desk so they can reach for whatever the need any time.
