The first few weeks of the school year is a transitional period for parents and students. Who wants to wake up early, get bossed around all day, and do work after spending an entire summer having fun? When I was a kid, coming home from school meant having a snack while I did my homework. Looking back I think the snack was more of a silent bribe, but it worked. I knew there would be cookies and milk waiting at the homework table so I didn’t complain; well, not usually. It worked so well that I carried that idea over into my bag of parenting hacks.
I think it’s important to have a stable routine in place for kids, especially during the school year. If that routine includes delicious cookie goodness, even better. I’ve yet to find anything the kids wouldn’t do for their favorite cookies. Even homework! That’s why, when we’re in Walmart, I pick up a few boxes of NABSICO Multipack with Oreo minis, Nutter Butter bites, and mini Chips Ahoy. They’re the perfect size for after-school snacking and for packed lunches.
Homework with NABISCO Multipack
Just like my childhood, when the kids get home from school they know there’s going to be milk and cookies waiting for them at the homework table. Thanks to the handiness of NABSICO Multipack there’s no extra work for me. I just reach into the box and pull out the bite-sized cookies. It’s always a surprise and luckily the kids love all the varieties. The Oreo minis are everyone’s favorite, but there’s no complaining when it’s either a mini Chips Ahoy or Nutter Butter bites day. Here’s a peek at what our homework space looks like, go ahead and steal the idea – it works so well!
The area is mostly clear to give a distraction-free environment. I learned that the hard way, after lots and lots of frustrated refrains of “Leave that alone and do your homework.” There’s a cup of pencils, pens, erasers, and markers – so there are no excuses in that department. I printed and framed one of my favorite educational quotes by Aristotle because if I don’t encourage them to learn then who’s going to buy me a condo in Florida after they graduate from law school?!
If your kids don’t look forward to homework time, maybe you can try our method. Be sure to pick up the NABSICO Multipack from Walmart because they’re awesome. And they’re perfect anytime, not just homework time. They travel well so toss a few in your bag the next time you hit the road with the family and hey, they’re great for Mom and Dad too!
