The routine of shuffling your kids out the door so they don’t miss the school bell will soon return. Be sure you’re ready for the back-to-school whirlwind with these five tips.
First thing’s first — you have to prepare for school. There are a lot of supplies to gather before the big day, so stay organized with a school supplies list. Every grade has different needs so it’s always a good idea to have a list so you don’t forget anything, such as tissues or index cards.
Another important thing to do before the school year starts — which can easily be overlooked — is bedtime. Adjusting back to an earlier bedtime can be challenging when summer was filled with late nights and sleeping in. Some professionals advise putting your kids to bed and waking them up by 15 or 30 minutes earlier each week until they’re back on schedule.
There’s always excitement in a new wardrobe come school season. Your student will be the talk of the class when they wear color-changing tees. With fun designs, their teachers and friends will notice how the tee changes from one color inside to another color when exposed to sunlight. It’s two looks in one and sure to make the morning routine easier as they’ll be eager to wear their cool tees.
Speaking of recess, younger students will be thrilled to bring something new to play with their friends. From footballs, to soccer balls, flyers, and more, their friends will enjoy the outdoors. You can finally get your kids to put down technology with these fun toys.
Continuing the color-changing trend, older students can ditch their backpack for a color-changing tote bag. This unique bag shows off personality as it changes from one color to another when exposed to sunlight. It’s durable with reinforced handles and 100% cotton canvas, so they can easily load all their textbooks. A laptop will perfectly fit in it as well.
