Ready or not, it's that time of year again – back to school! But don't worry, we're here to make sure you conquer this back-to-school season. Let's dive into some tips and hacks that will have your family sailing smoothly through those bustling mornings and homework-filled evenings.

Mastering Mornings: Rise, Shine, Conquer!

Mornings can be hectic, let's figure out the best way to tackle our day. We know, we know, the snooze button is a magical thing, but consider setting it back just a teensy bit. Those extra minutes can make all the difference. Also, prepare the OOTD (a.k.a. outfit of the day, ideally from Stone Windsor) the night before.

Getting Dressed:

Thanks to our founder’s styling expertise, Stone Windsor’s pieces are designed to be endlessly mix-and-matchable. Charlene wanted to infuse simplicity and style into every day, and our collection stands as a testament to the belief that getting dressed should be fun, not a challenge. We comprehend the early morning hustle, which is why we prioritize simple silhouettes and refreshingly cool tones. Charlene’s go-to pieces for September are the Marley pants or the Stevie Pants, styled with the Stone sweatshirt You can get two looks out of one!

The Art of Homework Headquarters

Homework at times can get a bit challenging. As moms, we must create a calm clutter clutter-free area where our kids feel comfortable, focused, and relaxed in the perfect environment and have all the necessary items (backpack, pencils, papers, erasers) perfectly organized for a fresh start. 

Lunchtime Victories: Fueling the Brain

Lunch prep can feel like a culinary Olympics event but one idea that's been stealing the show is the DIY lunchables.

How about rolling with the classics in a fun twist? One of our favorites to make for school is Almond Butter & jelly sandwich. How about transforming it into a delectable pinwheel sandwich? Spread almond butter and jelly on a whole wheat tortilla, roll it up, and slice it into bite-sized rounds. It's not just a lunch – it's a lunch adventure!

Let's not forget about the power of bento boxes. These nifty containers allow you to offer a variety of items in perfectly portioned sections. Load up some grapes, carrot sticks, mini sandwiches, and a yogurt dip. It's like a mini buffet, right in their lunchbox.

For those seeking a bit of international flair, consider creating a taco-inspired lunchbox. Pack tortillas, shredded cheese, your protein of choice, and colorful veggies in separate compartments. Your little ones can assemble their own mini tacos, adding a sprinkle of creativity to their lunchtime routine.

In the world of lunch, wraps reign supreme. Roll up your favorite protein, cheese, lettuce, and a smear of cream cheese in a tortilla for a portable and scrumptious lunch option. If you're feeling adventurous, try a hummus and veggie wrap, filled with crunchy goodness.

Mealtime can be a struggle for younger kids, so always remember to make food a colorful, fun, and engaging experience!

The Nighttime Routine: A Soothing Finale

As the day winds down, it's time for that glorious bedtime routine. A warm bath, cozy pajamas, and a bedtime story can work wonders. And hey, why not involve your children in choosing their Stone Windsor outfits for the next day?
