The Dream Team and I have been soaking up every sunny minute of summer, but we’ve also been talking about some back-to-school “woes” we foresee on the horizon so that we can attempt to brainstorm solutions for these before they become reality!
One topic we all agreed on was the After-School-Cyclone. We defined this term as When the children come in like a whirlwind of destruction, shouting words like “hungry”, “snack”, and “bored”. Mommas… how do we keep this storm from wreaking havoc in our homes?!
Enter the Don’t Ask It – Basket.
Ladies, the title says it all! Fill these little supply caddies with everything your kiddos need to serve themselves when they come in after school. Hungry for a snack? No need to ask mom, your favorites are right there in your basket! Include boredom buster activities like puzzles, coloring books, and markers or whatever your littles like to do!
We love that the handled caddies make the included items portable, so if kiddos want to take them outside to the yard or patio, or to the dining room table or playroom, they can totally take the party with them! Prep these caddies as part of your morning routine or whenever is convenient for your schedule such that they are in position for when the party patrol plows through!
