Ideas for Your Family Routine

Back to school can be so fun, but sometimes transitioning out of the lazy summer rhythm into the hustle and bustle of a school and work week can be exhausting. In this post, we've gathered some ideas of helpful resources to help you find the perfect rhythm for your family.


IDEA #1: IMPLEMENT STRUCTURE TO YOUR CHILD'S DAY

This sounds like a great idea! But how? This blog post by avirtuouswoman.org, gives some great advice for structuring a day with a toddler and infant at home so you can enjoy your children more.


IDEA #2: IMPLEMENT A ROUTINE CHART

Consider putting up a routine chart on your fridge or child's bedroom door. You can easily make one yourself, or if you don't have time for that, we love this printable routine chart with visual aids that even your toddler could use from Etsy!

Idea #3: SHARE THE HOUSE WORK

After a long day of work and school, the last thing you want to do is stay up cleaning all night. Consider making the first thing you do when you get home as a family is taking a few minutes to create a peaceful environment in your home by tidying up a bit so that you can enjoy family time together. Don't be afraid to get your kids in on the house work action! Kids love to work and help around the house. The sense of satisfaction they get from a completed task is very rewarding! We love this chart of age-appropriate chores.
