As a child, I always enjoyed playing in my grandmother’s kitchen. There was one cabinet in particular, dubbed the “science cabinet,” where my grandmother and I spent hours playing with mixing bowls, measuring spoons and Tupperware.
Growing up, I loved back-to-school time. I loved getting new pencils, clothes, a lunch box and the coolest trapper keeper binder I could find.
Young children thrive on predictable routine, but transitioning from the summertime – full of unstructured fun with family – to the school year schedule can be a little bit tricky.
