Looking for a daily schedule for your kids this summer? You’re smart! As a teacher and mom there is one thing that I am certain of: Kids THRIVE on routines and structure. I promise that if don’t have a plan for the summer they will end up driving you crazy.
Why Kids Need a Summer Schedule (and moms do too)
Yay! School’s out and the kids are home for summer…
Actually they have already been home FOR.THREE.MONTHS!
You know what that means?
- The house is a mess
- Your kids are fighting
- They refuse to go outside
- All they want to do is watch other kids play on YouTube!
But don’t worry mama! I’m here to save you!
All you need is a schedule this summer and they will be just fine ( and so will you).
Here’s the deal, kids THRIVE on structure and routine. I know this is true because I see it with my own kids and the kids in my classroom.
Plus there is a ton of child development research that clearly shows the children do best when they have a predictable routine to follow.
Stick to a routine and life is good.
“Break from routine and all the sudden you will see behaviors like whining, arguing and generalized grumpiness. Promise.
This is NOT how we want to spend the summer!
Luckily for you, I have done the research and have created a list of the best summer schedules for kids that will create enough structure while still allowing for flexibility and relaxation.
