Planning one last trip before the start of school? Here at OrganizedHome.Com, we love 3-ring binders. That's why we adore this travel tip for families with children: use free printables to create a kid's activity binder before traveling.
Use these links to print free coloring pages, word games, puzzles and activity sheets.

To keep clutter at bay, think "erase the evidence"! When you leave a room, pause for a moment and survey your surroundings.
