Preparing for the end of the school year is just as important as getting your child ready for the beginning of the year. Here are three tips on how to prep for the summer holiday before that last school bell rings.
1. Make sure you have the names/phone numbers/email addresses of all of your child’s friends/parents, so you know how to get in contact with them to set up play dates over the summer.
2. Get the schedules of local story hours/craft times/park events, and more, from your local library/craft store/park website. This will be helpful if you need activities before kids start camp, something for a rainy day, or just a place to cool off from the summer sun.
3. Make decisions in advance about your child’s summer screen time. Set the rules (if they are different from the school year) for TV, computer, smartphone, and video game time.
