Memory Aids to Remember a Backpack

Stick a post-in note on the front door at eye-level so he sees it when he's headed to the bus stop. Have him tie his shoe-laces together around the backpack strap – no backpack, no shoes! Or set a reminder on his cell phone to buzz him two minutes before he heads out the door.
