Getting back to school is always a busy time. Planning schedules, pick up times, sports games and practices all while trying to keep everything moving at a fast pace can be exhausting. So we have 5 Back to School Routine Tips to share… I’m kind of excited that my daughter is at the tween age where she needs minimal help in getting ready for school but still needs help staying on track! One thing that we have in our everyday routine is the Sparkling Ice Naturally Flavored Water, its the perfect way to start our day with the over 15 colorful flavors to choose from… our mornings are far from bland!
5 Back to School Routines Tips that keep us on track for getting out the door are simple and easy!
1. Do something active to wake up!
2. Pack a lunch and snacks!
We always make sure to pack a lunch with plenty of extra snacks and our favorite Sparkling Ice water. Most days my daughter has practice after school and she always ends up having a snack in the afternoon. You can never have too much, a granola bar or crackers are easy snacks to pack!
3. Prepare outfits and hair style ideas the night before!
I know it seems like a small task that is easy to do, but with homework, dinner and baths going on in the evening we have forgotten to prepare…. and boy did we pay for it in the morning. Believe me you can easily have a 25 min conversation about clothes and hair with any little girl no matter the age, I’m so glad Mariya pre-plans her outfits even a few days before just to make sure everything is clean… it’s such a lifesaver!
4. Give them responsibilities!
Don’t feel bad for making a small 1-2 item to-do list for the kidos in the morning, it can be something as easy as putting away the dirty dishes after breakfast or making sure the pets have water in their bowls. My daughter likes to take our sweet Daisy on a short walk in the morning. It’s a big help to mom’s like me who are getting ready and making lunches for everyone…. Mariya takes her Sparkling Ice water with her to get the day started!
5. Eat SOMETHING!
Even if it’s something small, we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There as been times that Mariya has left in a rush from not following her routine and skipped breakfast. She really regretted it later because she was so hungry at lunch time. Even taking a breakfast option to go will be a great idea!
