School Year Plant

As we approach the school year (sob, for ALL the reasons) I've decided to do a better job of making a work-place for my kids that feels grounded and organized...Check back with me on this one will-ya? I might need another fist-bump.

One idea I have is to give them each a school-year plant to liven up their work-space and tend to.

What ideas do you have to help transition the kids into our new and modified school year?
