If you're a mom, then you know that life can get stressful. Between getting your kids ready for school, making lunches, deciding on dinner and driving your kids to extracurricular activities, you may feel like it's difficult to organize your home. Various techniques like online calendars, group text messages and planners may help. However, there are others ways to calm your mind and organize your family and house. And they could even be fun for you and your little ones! Here are some ways that you can utilize a whiteboard in your home:
Chores aren't easy. At the end of the day, no one really likes them, and you may find it hard to get your kids motivated to do them. In addition, it might even be difficult to motivate yourself. Yet chores are an everyday part of life that we must do to keep our homes clean. If your past attempts have not been successful, try using a whiteboard.
"Use whiteboards for chore charts to keep your kids motivated."
There are many perks to using a re-stickable whiteboard for your family. First of all, it can posted right onto the wall of the room of your choice. That way, no one in the family will be able to miss it. Your kids will be able to walk right up to the board and write on it directly. They'll get the satisfaction of crossing or checking a chore off of the list on the whiteboard with various colored markers which will give them a burst of motivation.
In addition to these other perks, using a whiteboard for your chores will allow for extreme organization. Make sure to put it in a high-traffic area in your home so you and your children will never forget your duties.
Learning math doesn't come easy for everyone, especially when your kid is at a young age and trying to master addition, subtraction and multiplication. Try to promote fun learning by using a whiteboard for math problems and homework. The ability to erase and write easily will come in handy when they're just learning and are prone to mistakes. In addition, you'll be saving countless pieces of paper that succumb to the inevitable trial-and-error methods of learning.
The ability to quickly write and erase could potentially help with your child's self-esteem, as well. There is nothing more disheartening than seeing red pen or big X's on his or her work. With the ability to erase quickly, he or she will have that boost of self-confidence to continue learning.
Have you ever gotten the what's-for-dinner text or call? Well, you won't have to worry about that anymore. Use a whiteboard to transcribe what you're having each night. That way, everyone in the family can plan accordingly. You can even get a little creative, and draw photos of what you're serving to to get everyone excited for family dinners.
P.S. You may still receive that call or text because, well, kids will be kids.
As a mom, making sure your kids are happy is at the top of your list. A fun way to always keep them smiling is to write messages or quotes. Here are some examples of some inspiring sayings to brighten their spirits no matter what kind of day they're having:
