Luckily, during summer time there is almost always something to do, whether it’s an outdoor activity or a movie day inside. Deciding what to do on a day to day basis with your children can begin to be a bit challenging some days, leaving you and your children feel stressed out. Having a schedule during the summertime is a way to keep children in a routine. It instills consistency and helps them transition back into their school routine when summer is over. Creating a summer time schedule may seem like extra work – but trust me, your sanity will thank me later.
Make it Monday: Monday is the start of the new week and new beginnings. Let’s get creative and make something new.
Thinking Tuesday: Time to put on our thinking caps to give us fuel to get through the rest of the week. This allows critical thinking to flow and helps ensure kids are still learning on a day-to-day basis.
Take a Trip Thursday: This day is dedicated to getting out of the house. With COVID-19 in mind, remember to wear your mask and carry hand sanitizer with you. Most importantly, keep a six feet distance from others and wash your hands when you get home.
