It’s only a couple of weeks until we’re back to school and I go into my normal routine of crazy lady yelling ‘shoes!’ every five minutes at my kids and realising that we’ve forgotten to do the homework again. I am not a morning person and I am super forgetful so school mornings are not quite the peaceful relaxed time I’d like them to be! Apparently though other people are way better at this school run business than I am and I’m more than happy to pinch a few of their ideas to calm my mornings down. I’ve hunted all around for the best school morning hacks to make your start to the day a bit calmer and these are my favourite ones that I’ve read!

Check how long it takes you to really walk to school before you start. If you’re starting school for the first time then it’s easy to guess how long it will take but remember that kids can take a lot longer. Our old walk took five minutes, oh, unless my toddler was with us in which case it took at least fifteen minutes and me getting all stressed! Go for a practice run if you need to!
