Some back to school traditions create lasting memories by way of the senses. By having freshly baked cookies after the first day of school will evoke those sensory memories in your kids when they are older. Have some warm cookies waiting for them when they get home the first day. It gets them to stay and share a bit of their day with you.
Whether you mark the new school year with a simple photo or a fun family outing, the important thing is to take the time to create special memories for your kids. While even parents of young children know that time passes quickly, parents whose children are grown really realize how life speeds to fast forward once kids begin school. A back to school tradition can help your family hold on to that sense of togetherness and belonging, making even the everyday seem that much more special to them. See more on family traditions.
