If you have school aged children then you know how crazy school mornings can be. There are things that you can do to make the craziness stop, or a least subside a little.
1. The day before go through backpacks and school folders. Check for permission slips that need to be signed, info on upcoming school events, and that everything they need for the next day is in their backpack.
2. School lunch or home lunch? Do they need a drink or something additional for school lunch, if it can go in the backpack put it there, if not write a note. If it is home lunch, make it and put like items together, sandwich and fruit in the fridge, drink pouch, chips, and a napkin in their lunch box.
3. Set out clothes for the next day. This takes all the guesswork out of what are they going to wear today. You can even set your own clothes out too!
4. Set timers. Do the kids like to watch TV while they eat breakfast, then they lose track of time? Set a timer to let them know that it's time to move on to the next task.
5. Keep everything they need for school in one place, like backpacks and sweaters in the hall closet. That way you will always know where everything is at and all you have to do is grab and go.
