School is nearly back in session and there are some new innovations that can make mornings a lot easier.
Lifestyle Expert Suzie Chase Brown joined Barbara Tuesday morning on BVTM with suggestions.
Make mornings and after-school time easier for your children and you with Easy Daysies! It’s the magnetic schedule for children that helps them to know “what’s next” for the day! The “Getting Ready” routine kit is great to help families get out the door without forgetting important tasks! Teachers will love the “At School” kit so students can stay on-task. My favorite is the kit that includes all the “after school” activities...it’s the easiest way for children to learn routines and responsibilities...and have easy days! Easy Daysies are at Barnes & Noble stores!
A great way to promote independence and motor skills in youngsters...Myself Belts! It is the only belt you’ll find with a one-handed closure that promotes empowerment and self-esteem. They’re a true favorite of parents and teachers. Myself Belts has a wide array of cute styles and size options. You can even order personalized belts. Find them online, starting at $16.95.
Minimize fussing over what your little girl will wear to school. Sass Factory brings together fashion and fun! It's where the age-old pastime of paper dolls meets a girls' clothing line. Budding fashion designers can choose a shirt and every time she wears it, she can dress the doll and dog up differently! $29.99.
Smoobee Magic “No Cry” Brush
Want a tear-free morning? One Smoobee “Magic No-Cry Brush” will take out the tangles for anyone in the family! The Smoobee is uniquely designed to brush through hair without snagging or catching! Eliminating the daily drama of de-tangling means more quality time spent together....and the Smoobee comes in different colors so each child can have his or her own!
And if food allergies affect your youngsters, you’ll want to know about AllerMates! Bracelets, lunch bags and snack bags alert teachers and caregivers to a child’s gluten, dairy, egg or peanut allergies...also safeguards for children with asthma! The allergy and health awareness wristbands and dog tags are something kids will wear and parents will endorse! You can find these at CVS...they’re $5.95 each.
It is so important to reinforce ways children can succeed beyond our homes. Papersalt makes books and activities with life lessons that will help your child go to the head of the class! With topics like “We Do” (we do sorry, we do respect, we do family fun…), “I stand for,” (the things I value), etc. Papersalt books are Made in the USA and a Mom’s Choice Award Winner. $12.95
Make your backpack stand out with one from Karma Gifts! The sturdy, roomy and feel-good book bags are comfortable on your shoulders. The best part: they won’t get mixed up with anyone else’s bag! Find them online for $60.
