Ready for school mamas? No, neither are we – there are labels to sew, shoes to polish and pencils to sharpen, not to mention heaps of shopping for new gear and little brain cells to re-awaken.
Want to get your kids kitted out with zero stress and maximum style? Get over to Boxpark where Imaginarium – an amazing educational toy store – is waiting to answer all your start of term prayers. From backpacks to stationery and a huge range of creative materials including crayons, finger paints, felt-tip pens and crafty stuff for after-school activity, all you gotta do is share your needs with the Imaginarium crew and they’ll match you with the best tools for the job.
Worried about easing the kiddos back into the school routine? Well Imaginarium even have their very own expert psychologist in childhood and toys (how cool is that) who says it’s all about maintaining a positive attitude (no more whingeing that the holidays are over ok mamas?!). She also recommends that ‘the adaptation process must begin two weeks before the start of classes’ which gives us plenty of time to get our little pupils prepped and ready to go – and advises that all the precious time we’ve spent with the kiddos over the summer holidays may cause a little separation anxiety at the school gates.
This is where the incredible range of Imaginarium educational and fun items can help – there are arts & crafts to get stuck into and all kinds of school material to experiment with – perfect for getting little brains in gear and ideal for that all-important mama/kiddo time that will help ease the transition from holiday to classroom.
Still worried about start of term? Don’t be mamas – a visit to your Imaginarium friends is as easy as ABC and will get you and the littles school ready in no time.
