Family life in 2019 is busier than ever. Over 60% of Australian households with children have both parents working. More than 56% of children participate in at least one after school sporting activity each week. It’s hard work for families to keep on top of it all and even harder for kids to get organised each day.
Family routines help everyone in the household stay organised. Importantly, an organised and predictable home life helps children feel safe, secure and works to build good habits. “Children cope better with routines, it gives them structure and empowers them to take responsibility of their own actions”says Janine Franz, Occupational Therapist Clinical Manager from Talking Matters (Speech Pathology & Occupational Therapy) in South Australia.
Busy Kid have a range of magnetic planners that offer fun and simple ways to help families and young children organise and plan the week ahead.
Each Busy Kid planner comes with a large base magnet and 40 colourful magnets that include popular school and after-school tasks and sports activities, daily routines, or age appropriate household chores and jobs.
They help children connect days and actions, and build good daily habits of organisation. Perfect for early readers and for children that benefit from simple visual aids and schedules.
Busy Kid Magnetic Planners are designed and manufactured in Australia. They follow strict Australian standards for safety and quality. All feature smooth, rounded edges and adhere to recommended sizing for magnetised children’s products.
Busy Kid planners empower children to take an active role in their activities and helps build self organisation skills and responsibility.
