Sure, there are a few weeks left in summer vacation, but it’s over. We just returned from our final road trip of the season and are now settling in to the grind of shopping lists, wardrobe turnover, and starting to plan for Grade 3 and Grade 5.

But the end of summer doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. See below for five tips on getting your little ones school-ready without cutting short their summer fun.

1.Set your clocks for more fun!

The week before kids go back to school, it’s time to start gradually implementing familiar routines and bedtimes, and that means earlier wake-up times. But waking up early doesn’t have to be a chore. After breakfast, start your day with a family outing — playing ball in the backyard or taking a hike to the park beats the couch any day!

One of our favorite hiking adventures is to find a forest and seek out Ewoks. The boys take fun poses, and then I photoshop in the rest of the scene when we get home. They love it.

2.Allergy solutions that aren’t a pain

If your kids have seasonal allergies that flare up around school time (hello, ragweed), it can be tough convincing them to take their medicine. Luckily, we have some effective – medicine that relieves allergy symptoms …and come in great flavors! Your kids will be ready to hit the great outdoors with AERIUS Kids® or Claritin® Kids. Both offer 24-hour non-drowsy relief and come in a great-tasting syrup.

3. Take a school tour

Heading back to school can cause stress for some kids (and parents!). Take some time together at the end August to visit the school before its time to start classes. School playgrounds are usually awesome, so if you have younger ones they can test drive the new equipment and you could bring a long a picnic to make the new building more familiar.

It’s a great time to talk about all the fun possibilities that come with going back to school – like seeing your friends or favourite teacher, or joining a school team.

4. Set aside a special day

The days before back-to-school can get hectic. Make sure to set aside some time to have a special day with your little ones doing a favorite activity, or having one last summer adventure. Something as simple as backyard camping or spending a day having fun by the water can be a great time to reflect on your amazing summer activities.

5.Treat nasal cold symptoms

Don’t let a summer cold or stuffy nose put a damper on your kids last summer days. hydraSense® has a solution just for young children that can clear nasal passages without medications or chemical additives.

What are some of the fun ways you and your kids are getting ready to head back-to-school? Do you have any tips or tricks for making the transition easier?
