Near the entry to your house, give everyone a bin for everything they need to grab on their way out the door. Whether it’s their backpack, mittens, school supplies or umbrella, having everything in one place will make mornings faster and easier.
KEEP IT GOING: Have everyone prepare their bin at night to prevent mornings filled with searching around for stuff when you’re trying to get out the door!
The things you do together are what makes your family unique. They’re also what your kids will remember once they’re all grown up. Together, name three things you love to do as a family, and make a plan for how you can continue to make them meaningful.
Put a gummy worm in someone’s cereal as a practical joke to start the morning with a laugh! As your family eats, have everyone share their favorite joke.
KEEP IT GOING: Ask everyone to find a new joke today to share at dinner.
