We had a fantastic and busy summer – spending our days swimming, reading, watching movies, playing with friends and a beach vacation. But despite all the fun we had, it’s time to get back in a routine and prepare for school.
My little guy will be going into the first grade! He is beyond excited and ready to be back in the classroom with friends. I’m ready to be back in a consistent schedule and morning routine.
Our mornings are still pretty relaxed, but the one thing I stuck to in our routine is good hygiene! We like to start the day using Tom’s of Maine® products.
My little guy doesn’t need deodorant yet, but he remembers watching his daddy put it on each morning and I don’t have the heart to tell him he doesn’t need it yet. It also helps that I know that Tom’s of Maine is made with products that will not harm his body and safe for kids. It offers 24 hour odor protection and made with fragrance specifically designed for boys & girls.
Along with the deodorant, I also picked up a new toothbrush and toothpaste from Sprouts. My son likes the taste of the Silly Strawberry and Fruitilicious, so that’s always a must. All Tom’s of Maine® natural personal care and oral care products are made with no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives, and are not tested on animals. And all packaging can be upcycled through TerraCycle®.
Did you know that by purchasing Tom’s of Maine® products, you’re helping children in need get essential school supplies?
EASY BACK TO SCHOOL MORNING ROUTINE
- Pack lunches, snacks and water bottles the night before.
- Set out all clothes before bedtime.
- Have several easy and quick breakfast options that you can make or grab for the car ride.
- Stock the bathroom with all necessities for the kiddos.
- Walk out of the house 5 minutes early – kids take FOREVER to get in a car.
Planning ahead is key to a smooth, stress-free morning. Having prepared as much as possible the night before leaves time to help with shoes, wardrobe issues or any other meltdown that might happen during the morning.
