Back to fun should be synonymous with back to school. Why should life suddenly become boring, drab, and a general bummer just because school is back in session? It shouldn’t! Kids should be excited about this time of year, but of course, if you remember being a kid, you remember that you probably weren’t.
I’m always trying to make back to school a back to fun time for my kids, and I’ve found some great items that do just that. They make learning and snack time fun, and they also make being back in school safer. Those are all things that I think are important to any mom or dad. So read on and take a look.
Items that Make Back to Fun a Real Thing
I’m a big believer in making education enjoyable for kids. The worst thing that can happen to a child in school is being miserable and bored. At that point, they just check out. While I can’t control their curriculum or what they’re interested in, what I can do is make learning fun when the kids are at home. These items help me do that, and they also help me make sure my kids are as safe as I can help them be when they’re out walking the grounds and the halls.
Banana Panda specializes in puzzles, games, and books that make learning fun for little minds. Designed for kids from birth through age seven, Banana Panda has products that are absolutely perfect for youngsters who are preschool or kindergarten age.
Setting sail for a new adventure is always something my family is up for, especially when it entails assembling a puzzle with celestial bodies and everything in the solar system as in the Observation Puzzle Space 4+. Having one who will be studying the solar system this year in school this puzzle was a perfect introduction to inspire and come up with questions for her new science teacher.
As we set out on a new adventure this week, the What in the World 168 piece oversized puzzle was just enough to keep the kids busy while I packed up their belongings and thy imagined where our unexpected adventure would lead us.
