Getting your child’s backpack organized is a feat worth celebrating. But making sure kids put in everything they need for the trip to school and back can take some work. A luggage tag checklist is an easy way to help your child keep track, without it being obvious to other kids.

All you have to do is buy an inexpensive clear luggage tag to attach to the backpack’s zipper pull. Take out the address label and replace it with this printable checklist.

You can customize the “To School” and “To Home” sides. For example, if your child is in the orchestra, add the instrument to the checklist. Or maybe your child wants to make each side a different color. Brainstorm together about ways to make sure your child checks the tag before heading out to school, and again before leaving for home.
