Charleston County schools start back August 20th. Are your children ready? We all know how exciting the beginning of the academic year is, but it can also be a stressful time for kids and parents. Read on for some simple back-to-school tips for Charleston families.
Break the Ice
Plan a day for your child to get together with new classmates or old friends they haven’t seen all summer. The best way to do this is by planning a fun playdate around Charleston. Consider a meetup at Charleston Fun Park, where the kids can get to know each other over a round of Putt-Putt, a game of mini bowling, or a ride on our Virtual Reality Coaster. And don’t forget about our bumper cars and climbing wall!
Get Back in a Routine
Of course, getting ready for school isn’t all fun and games. It’s important to help your child get readjusted to a normal routine before the alarm clock goes off on that first day! If bedtime has crept later over the summer, now’s the time to work it back to a reasonable hour that gives them a full 8-10 hours of sleep. With bedtime in place, they will also be able to get up and have a nutritious breakfast to fuel them through lunchtime.
While bedtime, homework, and school activities are important parts of your family’s schedule, don’t forget to make some time for fun, too! Instituting a weekly family fun day is a great way to keep that summer fun going a little longer. Fortunately, there are lots of fun family activities in Charleston to choose from, especially at Charleston Fun Park!
