“Good morning puppies! It’s the first day of school!!!,” which is usually how I greet my boys on the first day of school every year. In our home the first day and the first week of school is a big ordeal. Like many moms I am always searching for great ideas to create a fun back to school experience.
I like to think for kids going back to school the experience is equivalent for adults starting a new job; the excitement, anticipation, and the nerves. Below we have fun back to school ideas that will make any kids first of school memorable.
Get your kids amped up for back to school by turning it into a celebration! The night before plan a healthy breakfast together, then later on as the parent or parents decorate the breakfast area in your home. This gesture displays the day is super special, it builds excitement, and it wakes them up.
A second great idea to create a memorable back to school experience is to add a sweet encouraging note in their lunch box. This gesture is encouraging, loving, and reassuring.
We are not done yet! Taking the same idea with decorating the breakfast area in your home and just do a repeat for dinner. This gesture brings the family together, allows the family to slow down to communicate, and again it reinforces that the first day of school is a special occasion. Take it a step further- plan a back to school weekend celebration to celebrate a successful back to school week.
Do take the time to share your back to school ideas with us!
