It feels like summer just started, yet here we are thinking about back to school tips already! Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the last day of school! Now, I have less than a month to buy clothes, supplies and readjust our summer sleeping schedule to a school year schedule. If you’re in the same boat, these back to school tips will help you get organized and ready in no time!
Back to School Tips for all ages
PREPARE LUNCHES – Buying and preparing a nutritious lunch is definitely a challenge at times! Plus, there is really no way to know that your kids are actually eating all those healthy goodies you pack! Consider giving them a top-up with a tasty gummy multivitamin like L’il Critters(tm) Gummy Vites. Made with naturally sourced flavours and packed with essential nutrients, they’ll be prepared for a full day of playing and learning.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOPPING – The best back to school tips for dealing with your shopping list are to get organized as a family and purchase only what you need. Sit down with your kids and make a list of the items they will need for the year ahead. When you reach the store, stick to the list! While it’s okay to be tempted by cute little, inexpensive extras like fun pencils and erasers, you don’t want to go all crazy with a ton of expensive items you won’t need.
CREATE A SCHEDULE – This is the hardest part for me! Both my son and I fall victim to summer sleep schedules; late nights and even later wake-up times are the name of the game. Get your whole family prepared by getting your kids back on schedule. Provide them with a daily routine one or two weeks before the first day back and they’ll be ready and energized for the beginning of school. Get yourself on the right schedule too!
GET ORGANIZED – Back to school is hectic enough with your little ones, but if you are sending your teen back to university or college, it’s a whole different story. Prepare them for the year ahead by sending along some Arm & Hammer(tm) Coldwater(tm) Laundry Detergent. It gets out dirt and odours while saving money on hydro bills (versus washing in hot or warm water). For the 5 – 6 weekly loads you may find yourself doing with back-to-school activities, Arm & Hammer Laundry detergent will be your new best friend, giving clothes a clean and fresh boost with the power of baking soda.
STAY HEALTHY – Saying goodbye to your kids as they head off to university is one of those bittersweet moments of parenthood. Late classes, hectic schedules and long nights of studying might leave you worrying about their health, especially with ‘student budgets’. Why not send them off with a supply of Vitafusion(tm) MultiVites gummy vitamins to help maintain their health? Filled with key vitamins and delicious to bat – forgetting to take them won’t be an issue. Just remember that vitamins are considered supplements and shouldn’t replace healthy meals. You knew that, though, right?
