Using Your Computer to Help Make Going Back to School Fun

The arrival of the new school year brings an organizational challenge - a dash of carpool rides here and a couple of unmade lunches there. This year, have some fun while wrangling it all in with these back to school projects. They'll spice things up, make you look good, and hopefully get everyone to school on time. All you need is a computer, a printer and a little imagination.

Stay organized with a homemade calendar that includes seasonal photos of your little ones. Most word processing programs offer a calendar template. Simply add your digitized photos and some colorful clipart and you're good to go. Believe it or not, you can run paper lunch bags through some inkjet printers. Simply create a document based on the dimensions of the bag then add your little student's name and some funky clipart. You can also print colorful little notes that you place in their lunch bags to give your child a boost while you're apart during the day.

Some word processing and most desktop publishing programs come with bookmark templates. Create your bookmark and print it on card stock or glossy photo paper to make it more durable. Your local computer store will likely have a selection of laser and inkjet labels. Simply follow the instructions on the package and turn them into book labels, cheery stickers, nametags and more.

I pull out all the stops to sell your home.
