How to Make Going Back To School More Fun For Your Child
By: Mars Salazar
Going to back to school isn’t a fun experience for every kid. After all, who wants to hit the books again after playing around and lazing about all summer long? Not most kids, that’s who.
But this school year’s going to be different–it’s going to be more fun and exciting. Here’s how you can do it.
Have Them Help Plan Their Meals.
You know what every kid’s favorite subject is? It’s not math, art, or P.E., but recess. Making your child the coolest kid in the cafeteria is guaranteed to get him/her excited to go to school. You can achieve this by planning your child’s meals with them. Make their food look and taste good, and they’ll be very excited to walk out the door in the morning.
Designate A Study Nook.
It’s definitely more exciting to do assignments and learn new things when you’ve got a nice place to study in. It works for a lot of people, and it might just work for your child, too! Designate a place in your home as a study nook with colorful school supplies, organizers, and a corkboard or whiteboard where your child can pin up their homework and mementos. Give your kid the opportunity to decorate the study nook and they’ll be more excited to use it.
Display Photos Taken During The School Year.
Don’t forget to display all the photos your kids have taken during the school year! Display them on a Nixplay Frame, which can be easily updated with their latest snaps. Take advantage of our upcoming Back To School Sale and get 25% off selected Nixplay Seed Frames, only from August 12 to 25!
Write Down The Reasons Why School Is Fun.
Sit your children down and have them list everything they love about school: Their friends, their crushes, their favorite teachers, the field trips, their favorite subjects, the beautiful campus, the opportunities to represent their school in competitions. This exercise reframes their mind, allowing them to shift their focus from the things they dread about school, to the things that get them excited about it.
Shop For New Clothes.
One more way to get kids to excited to go to school is to spice up their wardrobe a bit. Be it a new pair of jeans, t-shirts with prints they love, or light-up sneakers, they’ll be eager to parade them in the schoolyard and show them off. It probably is an unconventional way to stay motivated, but it might just work!
