ONCEKids Back to School Checklist (Part 3 of 4)
By: Kate Camillo
Hi guys. Welcome back. As you can see this is the third part of a series,
Once school starts it is going to be hard to focus on anything else. You’ll ask them how their day was and help them with their homework and learn how to do whatever math teachers are teaching these days. It can be hard to connect with your child outside of this. Next on our list is making time to spend with your child that can help your relationship and help them detach from school. You can read together, play the Fujimini game together, check a weekly blog such as the Fujimini one, or anything else you can think of. It is important to make time to hang out with your kid. Don’t get so caught up in back to school that you forget the relationship you had in the summer, the fun one where you played games and went to the park.
Fujimini Island is a community that can help you do this, we have a game, a blog, an instagram, a website, coloring pages and so much more. We see the value of parents being with their kids and are here to help. (Another shameless promo, I’m sorry, but not really because it’s my job). Promo or not, that statement still holds true, we are here to help bond together mother (or father) and kids.
Checklist so far:
- Provide your kids downtime
- Encourage new forms of reading
- Get their creative juices flowing with imagining stories
- Ease them into structure
- Spend time together
Countdown until September 1st: 25 days!! It’s getting so close! I can almost smell the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!!

I hope you’re enjoying the last couple weeks of summer and we’ll see you next week!
