Teaching little ones how to start a new after school routine can be one difficult task! If your child is anything like mine, they flourish so well with routines that it can be rather tough to switch things up when the time comes. All you autism, ADD, ADHD mamas definitely know what I’m talking about here! Our kids tend to be stuck in their own ways!
A new school year means new academic goals and a new after-school routine that needs to take place! If your kiddos struggle when it comes to learning a new routine or if time management in general is just not their thing, I have the greatest routine hack of all. Back to School Routine Clock!
All you need to do is sit down with your child and write up an after-school schedule on a blank piece of paper that works for the both of you. My child is still on the younger side, so we include a lot of play into her after-school routine since homework usually doesn’t take too long. When she gets older, that playtime can eventually be swapped for more homework and study time! Then take a cheap wall clock. Have mom or dad take it apart in small pieces and color code the face to match your child’s new after school routine. You can even let you child color away and make their own special Back to School Routine Clock! Make a really big deal out of the clock so they are eager to start using their newest creation. Then put the clock back together & hang it somewhere your child will look often so they follow it daily! I like to place my daughter’s routine clock in the living room since it’s in the center of our home!
Regardless of where our kids are when it comes to routine, I think we can all agree on what activity takes that number one spot on the routine clock, snack time! I swear I can pack the whole kitchen in my daughter’s lunch box just for her to come home starving to death and acting like she hasn’t eaten a thing in days. She’s also the world’s pickiest eater, like most high functioning autistic kiddos. I swear they hate everything, but their beloved chicken nuggets. So that’s why Tyson® Chicken Nuggets are the most convenient and affordable option for all our back to school/back to routine mealtime needs! A whole 2lb bag will literally last my kiddo forever and the price does not hurt the wallet! You can even prep for success and prep these snacks ahead of time in a food storage container to save more time after school. Score!!
I guarantee these protein-packed snacks with crave-worthy flavor will give your kiddo the full belly they need to conquer that after-school routine and hold them over until dinner time. No more “Mom I’m hungry” cries thanks to Tyson! The best part of all? All you Tyson favorites such as Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries, Tyson Chicken Nuggets, & Tyson® Chicken Strips come from chickens raised with no antibiotics ever!!! I know that gives this mama some peace of mind when it comes to snack time that’s for sure
You can easily find all your Tyson favorites at your local Price Rite Super Market! When you hit up Price Rite Supermarket to do your weekly grocery shopping, just head on over to the freezer section and toss a bag or two into your cart. Your kids will love you for buying them the best after-school snack ever!!!! Heck, you will even love yourself once snack time comes since who doesn’t enjoy stealing a nugget or two from their kids when they aren’t looking?
Does your child have an After-School Routine?
