It seems like just last week we were planning for the start of summer! For most Calgarian children, school starts in a few weeks.
Where Did the Time Go?
It can be hard for everyone in the family to change gears from unscheduled, endless days to the back to school routines of early bed times followed by early morning risings, packing lunches, homework and after school activities. To help make this transition go more smoothly, here are some tried and true tips for making the trip back to the school just a littler easier for everyone in the family.
We have a summer wish list that we all work on together at the beginning of summer, each of us add two or three ‘must do’ summer activities and we try to do one or two of them a week during the summer. Ask your child if there is anything that they really wanted to do this summer that hasn’t happened yet, make a day of it and end the summer with no regrets.
Mountains of homework can be a pain, but taking notes doesn’t have to be. The new quick-drying Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens® are fully wrapped with a comfort grip (because writing shouldn’t hurt) and feature a smooth style that keeps words flowing. From the first day of class to the last, your kids will be able to spread joy, not smears, with vivid gel ink that dries three times faster than your average black, blue or red pen. With 14 brilliant colours to choose from (MSRP: $32.99 for 14-pack), their notes – even the doodles in the margins! – will be bright and filled with fun!
Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens are available at Walmart, Staples, Amazon.ca and Loblaws. The pens are available in vibrant packs of 2, 3, 6, 8, 10 and 14.
