School Supplies Made Easy

Before school starts, pick a shopping day for your kids to purchase the supplies needed for their homework kits. For the 6-7 age group, must-haves include pencils/pens, markers, a 12-inch ruler, crayons, glue sticks, erasers and a pencil sharpener. Most schools post a list of supplies, so check your district’s website before heading to the store.
