I have a confession.
I struggle with brain clutter!
I have too many ideas. I write them on pieces of paper. I lose the paper (and I can’t find it when I want it). It drives me insane!
So, I came up with this simple idea. Whenever I have an idea for an activity for the girls, I write it on a colored index card. I place it in an index card holder, and when I’m planning or looking for something to do, I can pull out the cards with all my ideas on them!
I’ve also listed every learning activity we have on white index cards. When I want to plan which ones to use, I just pull out eight to ten activities and get them ready for the next week. Then, I move those cards to the back, and we have a fresh rotation the next week!
I can’t say my mind is completely uncluttered, but it’s helping!! And I remember to utilize the activities we have that I sometimes forget about!
*On a side note, I’ve also found Pinterest helpful in organizing ideas, but sometimes I just need a break from the computer!!
