We face it every year. Summer is coming to an end and school is just around the corner. It seems like we were just going through and recycling school papers and here we are, buying and prepping for another round. There’s supplies, clothes, timeline, textbooks, backpacks … and where did I even put those lunch boxes?
Getting your child ready to go back to school may feel like a full-time job, but with these helpful tips they will be ready to go back and have fun in no time!
- Get Back into A Sleep Routine
Late summer nights can drastically change your child’s sleep schedule. This can make mornings difficult for everyone. Start transitioning kids gradually over two weeks before school starts. Try your best to prevent naps during the day by keeping them busy and enjoying every moment of summer.
- Prep Breakfast in Advance
It’s no lie that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. But, with everyone rushing around, it often gets put on the backburner. By quickly prepping breakfasts (like overnight oats or frittatas on the weekend) or prepping lunches the night before, your kids can wakeup, grab and go.
For an easy parent-win, add essential vitamins to your kids’ breakfast routine. FLINTSTONES Gummies Plus Immunity Support and FLINTSTONES with Extra C chewables daily supplements are a great way to help your kids maintain their immune function, which is especially important as they head back to school. Plus, your kids will love the great taste.
- Get Shopping Done Early
Arguably this is the best part of getting your kids ready to go to school. Some schools might supply you with a shopping list; however, many stores also have them available, just call ahead to check. Remember, because it is a busy time of year stores will be packed, so the best time to go is early in the morning. If you want to beat the crowds, turn to online shopping. It’s quick and will come right to your door.
- Stop Seasonal Allergies Taking Over
Seasonal allergies are still in full force in September as ragweed season begins. It is easy to control your environment at home, but not as easy at school.
Check your allergy forecast and if your child’s allergy symptoms are playing up, consider giving them Claritin Kids before leaving the house in the morning. It’s non-drowsy and provides 24-hour relief so your child can learn (and play) at school all day.
- Back-To-School Cleaning
With summer days full of fun, cleaning the house can easily be pushed aside. Organizing your house for the upcoming year takes time. Declutter where ever you can to make room for school clothes that may have become a bit dusty over the summer. Don’t forget to pay special attention to your child’s homework area, closets and bedrooms.
Cleaning the house will be sure to rustle up the dust (and whatever else is hiding). AERIUS Kids brings fast and effective relief of allergy symptoms, and comes in a great bubblegum flavour. Also, because it is non-drowsy your kids can help clean the house with you – no excuses!
Going back to school is an exciting time for parents and kids. While it’s another change in routine, there are steps to make the transition easier. With these helpful tips you and your kids should be in the swing of things in no time, and full prepared for the upcoming year.
What else do you do to get your kids ready?
