Lesson Number One: Get Organized

Back to school means back to jam-packed schedules, with kids running from one activity to the next. It’s a challenge to keep everything organized. Akilah offers a great suggestion for reusing what others might simply toss in the trash to keep the myriad projects tidy: "My kids always have a project going. We reuse glass jars to store arts and crafts supplies, mix and store tempera paint, little terrariums and temporary 1/2 day bug habitats (after holes are punched in the metal top), and for kitchen experiments like pickling all sorts of things."
