Depending on where you live, school might have already started or you might have a couple of weeks to go. For mambi Design Team member Mary-Ann Maldonado's son, he has one week left of alarm-less Summer mornings before it's OFF TO 5TH GRADE he goes! To help him be ready for the change in routine, Mary-Ann worked together with her son on this Weekly Planner Pad page, plotting the back to school events happening next week.
About this project, Mary-Ann writes:
"Sometimes it is important to get your kids involved. 'BACK TO SCHOOL' is a time when it's necessary in our house -- as it is NOT a welcomed event around here. With a busy "kid" schedule rapidly approaching, I decided to use my Weekly Planner Pad to help my boy understand his responsibilities. Plus, it will help me get him where he needs to go on time. I asked him if he would like to help decorate my planner pad. He chose all the stickers and the color of the markers that were added here. He had the most fun choosing the washi we used from my wide collection. More activities will arise the first week of school so I had to leave some space for that. I know music will be added once we get the schedule."
"After the wahsi tape, the first thing he wanted me to add was the bus sticker. (Even a kid going into 5th grade loves bright primary colors.) It was fun to do together, and will work better than his Minion calendar hang in his room with NOTHING written on it! Maybe together, we can mold him into a planner addict too!
The pens I used for this project were the Paper Mate Flair pens. I get asked about them a lot, and I'm happy to report that they do not bleed or run. They are perfect and offer tons of colors!"
