4 Step Guide to Conquering Back to School
Summer is sadly coming to an end and we all know what that means. The dreaded back to school season is upon us! But it doesn't have to be as crazy or stressful as it could be. We've come up with a 4 step guide to conquering the back to school bug. These tips may seem like no-brainers but trust us, they will take the inevitable chaos out of your mornings.
1. Pick out clothes for the week
Sundays should be set aside for prepping for the week. That includes checking the weekly weather report and setting aside daily outfits for your children. You could take it a step further and let them get involved in the decision making. You know you will thank yourself come Monday morning, when you know that there is just one less thing for you to do.
2. Pre-pack school lunches
We know the last thing you want to do after a long day, is spend your evening prepping for tomorrow. But you know what's worse? Trying to get it done in the midst of screaming children, fighting siblings, or between changing dirty diapers.
3. Morning motivation checklist
Bring some positive reinforcement into your children's morning tasks. Creating a morning motivation checklist could be just the thing you need to get the kids excited about getting ready for the day.
4. Grab & Go Backpacks
The last step to the morning is grabbing those backpacks and heading out the door. All homework, school supplies, clothes, and accessories should be packed and ready to go from the evening before. All that's missing is a fresh lunch which you have already prepared because you've followed step 2!
