The routine of shuffling your kids out the door so they don’t miss the school bell will soon return. Be sure you’re ready for the back-to-school whirlwind with these five tips.
First Thing’s First — You Have to Prepare for School.
There are a lot of supplies to gather before the big day, so stay organized with a school supplies list. Every grade has different needs so it’s always a good idea to have a list so you don’t forget anything, such as tissues or index cards.
Hone Sleeping Habits
Another important thing to do before the school year starts — which can easily be overlooked — is bedtime. Adjusting back to an earlier bedtime can be challenging when summer was filled with late nights and sleeping in.
Some professionals advise putting your kids to bed and waking them up by 15 or 30 minutes earlier each week until they’re back on schedule. If you have less time to adjust your sleep schedule, don’t fret. Just start now. Every day helps and kids will adjust eventually.
Make School Clothing, Shopping Fun
There’s always excitement in a new wardrobe come school season. Your student will be the talk of the class when they wear color-changing tees. With fun designs, their teachers and friends will notice how the tee changes from one color inside to another color when exposed to sunlight. It’s two looks in one and sure to make the morning routine easier as they’ll be eager to wear their cool tees.
Remember, Recess Time Can Be Fun, Too
Speaking of recess, younger students will be thrilled to bring something new to play with their friends. From footballs, to soccer balls, flyers, and more, their friends will enjoy the outdoor recess time. You can finally get your kids to put down technology with these fun toys that will get them outside.
Continuing the color-changing trend, kids can stay hydrated and have fun at the same time with a Del Sol color-changing water bottle that changes color when exposed to sunlight. Medical studies consistently show that kids who are fully hydrated and active are happier and healthier, making them more prepared for learning and developing throughout the day.
Not only is this stainless-steel, vacuum-insulated bottle designed to keep your liquids cold or warm, but it’s also engineered with Del Sol’s innovative Spectrachrome® technology that changes the bottle’s color gradient according to the intensity of the sun’s UV rays.
The more intense the color changes on the bottle, the higher the intensity of the sun’s UV rays. When kids are outside having fun in the sun, they can see the strength of the color change on the bottle to then take action against too much sun exposure.
