Since I'm basically done until we find out what my son needs on the first day of school, I've started helping out my brother and Sister-in-law and another friend of mine since both are going through a financial rough patch.
My friend has twins (7) and custody of one grandchild. For her I bought just about everything the 3 little girls will need for the first day of school~ crayons, markers,glue, glue sticks pencils, folders, pencil case, notebooks, pencil sharpeners, erasers, fiskar scissors and each got a coloring book and some candy.
for my brother/sil I got my oldest niece (9) Monster High notebook, Monster High folder, Monster High pencil case, Monster High pencils, Monster High eraser, and a Monster High lunch box. I'll be picking her up crayons, glue / glue sticks, more pencils and anything else she might need to get through the first few weeks of school. I'll be picking up my other niece and both nephews something as well so they don't feel left out.
