As adults, it feels like we are always looking for ways to get organized, focus on gratitude, and create more order in our busy lives (especially around January 1!). But how do we help translate those important skills to our kids? With a busy 7-year-old daughter, this topic has certainly been on my mind.
In a typical week, my daughter’s schedule is packed with soccer practice and at least one game, nightly homework, and a handful of fun in-school and after-school activities. Given her age, she’s ready to start learning about responsibility and taking ownership over small tasks, like making sure her homework is done and her soccer uniform makes it to the laundry room. At the same time, I want to introduce these concepts in a way that’s kid-friendly and makes her excited about her new routines.
Enter the Klutz: Best. Year. Ever planner: a customizable yearly planner and gratitude journal that’s full of fun activities for kids. It comes with blank monthly and weekly calendar pages, journal and game pages, 270 stickers, a cute emoji pen, and over 100 sticky notes with prompts to get kids inspired, like “Today’s act of kindness: _____” and “Smiling because: ____.”
