these are my staples, basically I love to be prepared and so do my kiddos! so whatever I can do to start prepare them for a new school year, the better 🙂
Start preparing your kids for school ahead of time, like more than the day before 😉
All 3 of my kids have some type of anxiety around school (really who doesn’t?) so starting to prepare them (and reminders for me)is key for our family!
Here are some tips we use at our house:
- Reading– start reading some books about going back to school. I have one that is going into Pre-K (or Young Fives) so I do this mostly with him. Here are a few favorites
- Bedtime routine – Again, this is probably most important for my little guy. However, sleep is important for all ages (even mamas too). so starting to ease into a earlier bedtime a few weeks before or the week of, works well for everyone in the family!

This is a Gluten Free option when you use the Gluten Free option oats, which I see everywhere.
This is simple, chocolate go-to snack! And they are pretty healthy too, so that’s a bonus!
- 1 cup of Oatmeal (dry)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (try mini chips)
- 1/3 cup of honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Another option is to add 1/2 cup of flaxseed.
I will typically estimate how much of each ingredient and mixing together is the best part for my son 🙂
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into bite size balls, refrigerate and then enjoy! This little treat is a blessing in my day
