Time really flies when you’re chasing kids around all summer in the hot sun. Thankfully it’s almost September which means your kids are now their teachers problem for about 6-7 hours a day.
In all seriousness the summer was a blast with fun and sun but it’s time to get back in gear with schedules, packed lunches, carpool duty and homework checks.
If you’ve been thinking about how to make their transition back into the school year a little easier Aura Effect has some tips for you.
ONE LAST HURAH
Summer’s slowly fading away for another year and the dreaded back to school routine is looming. Throw your kids and their squad one last hurrah complete with a daytime BBQ, water games and red rover. When the sun starts to fade set up a screen projector and have a movie night outside!
Use any of Aura Effects LED glow furniture and décor to complete your outside screening party with chairs, tables to rest food and drinks or large lounge couches for all the kids to cuddle up on. It will no doubt be the topic of conversation around the water fountain for months to come.
SEND THEM BACK WITH CONFIDENCE & PRIDE
When sending out invitations for your child’s back to school bash include a note for parents as well asking them to donate any unwanted and gently used clothing along with at least 1 new school supply item i.e. Glue stick or pencils.
This is a quick and easy way to collect donations for the children of your community who perhaps can’t afford new ‘back-to-school’ supplies or clothing. Ask the children to help you sort through and separate it all before the festivities begin.
This will teach them an important lesson in learning to support fellow community members and doing their part to help others.
DIY A TEACHERS GIFT
Forget the freshly washed apples and Starbucks gift cards this year. Instead, DIY a gift with your child for their teacher. It’ll show creativity and effort, setting the standard for the year to come. Check out Pinterest for the ultimate DIY list.
Party on Toronto!
