LOVE this idea! Taking a picture at the beginning AND the end of the school year (with child holding their beginning of the year photo). What a fun way to see how they've grown during the school year!

I already started this Tradition for Christmas need to remember for Birthdays and school.

I have to do this for J man! If I only knew about this 14 years ago for my oldest two.

Another Pinner said: This kept my 2 year busy for an entire hour and my 4 year old busy for 2 hours! YAY! Drop vinegar tinted with food coloring onto a pan filled with baking soda. Sheer minutes of colorful fizziness!!... Pretty sure we will be doing this soon! GENIUS!

so how cool would it be to do one of these for your kid? 1st side in kindergarten and 2nd side when they graduated high school?

Another back to school / first day of school photo. Each year take a picture holding the picture from the first day of school from the previous year in the same photo spot. unique.

Make a secret stash of inappropriate pictures and compile for their 18th birthday and graduation... finally a reason to have kids

great tips and ideas for first day of school photos or a back to school photoshoot. I want to try some of these this year!

Early Graduation Gift For Baby ~ Do it at the end of each school year starting with kindergarten.

Dandelion Puffs: These wishes just wait on a shelf or kitchen counter until a sad child needs some love and encouragement. Then, it is off with the cap, eyes squinched closed for a wish, and a big huff. This cheers children any time they're sad–and it makes me happy just to see the dandelion puffs resting in wait. So sweet...

List of chores by age and how to SIMPLY organize them w/o a chore chart. (easy for kids & parents)... note cards in a basket that they pick from. One a day in addition to daily responsibilities, 2 on weekends, more for punishments.

Adoption photo! I LOVE this! Fun idea, too, for mama's that had a preemie and didn't get to do maternity pics.

Sometimes toddlers develop very bad habits -- behavior that is rude and unacceptable. And sometimes, busy moms don't recognize the behavior. It took two well-meaning adults to point out my toddler's negative behavior and open my eyes. Check out this list to see if you need to address some bad habits in your toddler's life!

Sweet Bow Swaddle Blanket, dying of a cuteness over load #TSM @Paula Stange Please @Paula Stange sugar Can you imagine this with "Legacy" embroidered on the bow? I'd die.
