Teaching kids time-management skills

Fall is a busy season for most families, with the return to school, extracurricular activities, and more, it can be a challenge to ensure everyone is where they need to be and getting done what needs doing on time. But there's no rule that says you have to be the schedule keeper for everyone in the family! Teaching kids to manage their time and priorities will not only save you time and sanity, but it will also give them a valuable life skill they will need for the rest of their lives.

One of the best things you can do is give your kids their own calendar to put in their rooms. To me, the best option is a wall calendar because it keeps everything front and center for them, easily viewed and serving as a reminder to them to stay on track.

Busy Family Planning Calendar

The Busy Family Planning Calendar is one of the best options for this purpose. Although it's designed to be used by all members of the family, it's a great option for kids for several reasons:

It's colourful and fun!

This is by far one of the most graphically fun, colourful family calendars I've seen! Kids will be drawn to the fun designs and bright colours. This is definitely not a stuffy, formal calendar. It's perfect for kids (but I'm not going to lie; I love it too!)

There's lots of room to write

Kids notoriously need a lot of space to write. This calendar offers plenty of room for writing down all of those assignment due dates, lessons, play dates, sleepovers, and more!

It comes with...

STICKERS!!! I'm definitely going to date myself when I say this, but when I was growing up there was nothing better in the world than a fresh pack of stickers. This calendar comes with a large array of brightly coloured stickers that kids can use to mark important dates on their calendars. There are stickers for doctor's appointments, sleepovers, field trips, birthdays, picture day, winter break, and more! There are even stickers for chores, with spots to write in the day's / week's chores to be done. The perfect, fun way to inspire kids to use their calendar. The stickers are big and bright, serving as a graphic reminder of the things of which kids need to stay mindful.

It has a handy pocket

This may seem like a small detail, but it's not. The pocket in the back of this calendar is very handy for kids to be able to store permission slips that need to be signed, party invitations, movie tickets they want to save, etc. -- instead of having things all over their rooms, surely to be misplaced.

The Busy Family Planning Calendar 2019 is an idea choice for teaching your kids how to manage their time, be responsible, and to keep track of where they need to be. As the busy back-to-school season starts, teach your kids responsibility, time management, and accountability by getting them their own copy of The Busy Family Planning Calendar.
