I haven't tried the workbox system but I did trays while doing preschool with my daughter. I did look into the wb system, though, and since it appealed to me I linked some ideas. I have a homeschool page on my blog; scroll down towards the end and you'll see some resources. Hope they help!

If they're not sticky enough, what about using hot glue to stick the velcro on for good?

We just go down the row of boxes. My kids can see where the last box is so I've never understood moving the label thing.

Thanks...I may try that! I thought maybe there was a certain brand that was better to use or something?

I'm big on crafts, and there's nothing like a hot glue gun! There are no good velcros that stick that way for long. They wear quickly.
