How to Use the My Memory Box: Kids School Paper Organizing System
The system is super easy to use!
Along with the printables, you’ll also need per child:
- 1 plastic file folder box (I like this one), with a lid and an inside lip in which to hang letter-sized folders. This silver/clear one is good because you can see inside.
- 15 letter-sized hanging file folders with corresponding plastic tabs
- Glue sticks
- Scissors and/or a 12-inch paper trimmer
STEP 1: Print off the papers in the kit, one set for each of your children.
The kit includes sets in four different colors–pink, blue, green and orange (not pictured).
STEP 2: Using a paper trimmer or good scissors, cut out each of the Folder Labels and the File Folder Tabs.
I love all of the information that you can include on each of the folder labels: favorite things to do, favorite book, sports/activities, closest friends, and an area for the child to put his/her signature.
STEP 3: Glue the Folder Labels to the outside front of the hanging file folders (one label per file).
You can leave space on the front of the file folder to attach a picture of the child in each corresponding grade if you prefer.
I enlisted a helper to make the job go faster.
Almost there! Only a few more steps until your box is complete!
