{Organise} Tasks to complete through school holidays

List to be organised for returning back to school Term 3

As of 3pm this afternoon my kids are on school holiday’s!!!!  I love school holiday’s, I may have mentioned before, sleep in’s,
lazing in PJ’s all morning, mostly love not having to make school lunches, I’ll do alot of baking with the kids, as they usually like to eat everything fresh but also to restock the freezer with some muffins and cookies.

But…during the holiday’s I like to do the following to be prepared for the first day in the following term. I do most of these jobs through the week, however in the holiday’s I make sure I get into all the nooks and crannies.

  • Vacuum out school bags with the brush attachment
  • Give school bags a wipe down with liquid detergent and warm water, hang on the line to dry
  • Give insulated lunch bags a wipe down, brush through the zipper area to get all the trapped food, allow to dry
  • Give the ice bricks a good wash
  • Give the drink bottles a good scrub inside and out
  • Wash shoes with a damp cloth, allow to dry, sprinkle with bicarb to remove any smells and polish
  • Soak their school socks (they are white) in nappy san for a day and wash, this will get them back to a crisp white removing alot of dirt that doesn’t come out in the normal wash
  • Mend uniforms
  • Tidy up their hair tie’s, see organising hair ties HERE
  • Tidy up the homework area, see organising school papers HERE
  • Try and use up as much pantry food as I can
  • Restock the freezer with more baking for lunchboxes
