As schools begin to open back up this fall, it’s so important to help children understand the importance of education, friendships and the safety and health of those all around us. Getting into the back to school routine is always an adjustment, but this year feels a bit different – hello masks! Heading back to school means going back to see friends every day, and with that comes a few new ways to be a good friend.
In our house, we’re reminding our kids of simple tips on how to keep themselves and their friends safe this school year: wear your mask, wash your hands, and avoid sharing items like masks, pencils, and water bottles. Making our little learners feel safe and comfortable should always be a priority.
Another way we can help little ones adjust to wearing masks at school is reminding them to wear a mask whenever we’re buzzing around town. Seeing everyone else in a mask and incorporating it into kids’ routines will help shape it into a habit. Look, even the Wonder Bunch kids wear masks!
Everyone at Wonder Bunch Media wishes you and your family a happy, safe, hopeful and FUN school year!
