I know, you’re still in the middle of winter, so summer feels far away, but it’s just around the corner! The kids will be out of school and it’s going to be chaos. If you want to get a jump start on productivity this summer, now is the time to plan. Here are a few ways you can get ready for having kids out of school now.
1. Research camps. You’ll need to register for many camps months in advance. Decide now if you want your kids to go to a day camp or an overnight camp and start doing some research on your options.
2. Stock up on supplies. Keep an eye out for sales on school supplies (great for buying arts and crafts goodies), toys and such. Grab them now and save them in a special box that you can dig into when kids need something to keep them occupied. Dollar stores are also a good place to check out.
3. Set aside special days. Mark family days on the calendar now so you’ll be sure not to book client meetings and work stuff on those days. Then stick to them. Your kids will be much easier to handle if they know they will get you to themselves on specific days.
4. Pin a few ideas. Pinterest is my best friend when it comes to kid activities. Seriously, there are some awesome ideas there! So take a few minutes every week to pin a few ideas. Or just check out my boards.
