It is really hard to believe that we are here talking about school time already.  We have had such a great summer so far and we are looking forward to the next few weeks before getting back into the school routine.  Now that both of the kids will be in school every day, our routine will be changing a bit this coming school year and we are excited.  If your kids are anything like Jude and Teagan when they are asked how school was when they get home from school the general answer is always, "GOOD!".  This school year, we are planning on doing things a bit different.

Now that I am working from home every day, I have a feeling that we will be having a lot more time after school to really talk and connect with the kids.  Plus, Jude will now be having homework every evening so our after school will really begin to look different.  

One goal that I have is to ask my kids about their day and make sure that they give more than a one word answer when asked!  I decided to create a fun after school question jar that will contain a number of questions for them to pick and answer while we enjoy a nice after school snack.

Now when we sit down to enjoy our after school snacks of our favorite Goldfis crackers we can make some memories while hearing all about Jude and Teagan's day at school.  With life always being so busy, especially during school time it is important to find these moments with your kids to really enjoy and create smiles with your kids.

For Jude we will have him choose 3 questions a day and for Teagan we will have her choose 2 questions a day.  It is a great way to sit with the kids for a while and hear some great stories about their day.  These moments need to happen more often, even during the busy seasons of life.  Sit, listen and enjoy with your kids this back to school season!

We choose Goldfish® crackers in the multi packs for our after school snack because they are easy to carry around to the front porch, kitchen table or even to the park.  My kids enjoy these crackers and I love providing them with a snack that is wholesome and yummy.  Goldfish® crackers are always baked with real cheese and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. Goldfish® crackers are a snack that every parent can feel great about giving their children.

  1. I love this idea! I don't have kids, but I would've loved to have had something like this to look forward to after school instead of cartoons. My sister has four little ones and works from home, I'm going to suggest this to her :)

  2. This is cute and creative! I remember coming home from school when I was little and when my parents asked me "how was school today" I would give the same generic answer "good." I don't have kids yet, but I do have younger siblings that this could benefit.

  3. I really like this idea and we’ve done something similar in the past. I need to come up with more questions though because my kids like to give the shortest answers possible and I want to get them talking!

  4. My daughter is pretty talkative after school. I do not have to worry about her not talking about her day as she usually volunteers this information. This is a neat idea for new talking points, though! And I may have to use it on my boys when they are in school.

  5. This is such a great idea...even for older kiddos! Now that I have one in middle school, getting him to tell me even a sentence about his day can be work. I may need to tailor something like this for his age level. Such a clever idea! And we love us some Goldfish, too...you're never too old for those!

  6. I think this is such a fantastic idea because honestly, sometimes questions and conversation fall flat with kids after school. They're exhausted, you're exhausted. This jar is a great way to engage in conversation with them.

  7. I can't believe the summer is already at the point where we're talking about back to school! This is such a cute idea. We homeschool, but I love this idea for helping start up a good conversation when kids have been gone to school all day.

  8. This is the best suggestion for an after school activity I have seen so far. I love this because it will help start a really good conversation with our children. If we are vigilant enough, we may notice any signs of anxiety that may be affecting their attitude towards school. I really think this after school question jar is an awesome idea. Get the jar ready, some cookies and milk too! :)

  9. I totally get this! It's important for me to know how my kids are doing especially in school and I'm not just talking about their grades but their social life as well. It's good to what's going on in their lives too and this question jar is the perfect solution for that!

  10. I love this idea. My daughter would always give me a full detail of her day, yet her brother was the exact opposite. Questions like this would've prompted him to share more with me, I'm almost certain.

  11. I seriously love the jar idea! Nowadays kids just don't want to communicate anymore. I love this and it will really help them become more comfortable talking to you as well, especially since kids don't like to do so the older they get.
