How to Help Make Back-to-School Time More Fun

Back-to-school (BTS) time can be a bittersweet moment.  For the parents, it's probably more of a relief and for the kids, it can be a hassle.  BTS time means homework, early morning schedules, etc.  Sometimes fun, but usually not so much.  It's important to keep the summer fun vibe going as long as you can to make the thought of going to school less daunting.

A fun way to make those first few weeks of homework seem like less of a big deal is to work on homework outside.  Turn on some light tunes, prepare some summery after school snacks and drinks and have a little homework session in the summer sun.  Try investing in a fun table and chairs set to make the idea more enticing.  We're loving this adorable outdoor Octagon Picnic Table from Kidkraft.

This kids picnic table from Kidkraft is made from solid, high quality wood, is quick and easy to assemble and is super affordable.  Priced at around $149 at stores like Walmart and Amazon, this is a must-have item for the backyard.
Disclosure:  I received a free product from Kidkraft to facilitate my review.  Any opinion expressed in this article is based on my experience with the product.

Each kids picnic table comes with a classy striped umbrella with a wooden pole to complete the look.  My daughter loves that she has her own "big girl umbrella."  It's actually very well-made with nice, thick fabric.  Plus the colors are so fun. What kid wouldn't want to do their homework under this thing?

The little chairs that go with this kids picnic table are so sturdy and durable that my husband and I can actually sit on them.  We love to sit at our daughters kids table with her and enjoy snacks and picnic lunches.  I think she gets a kick out of mommy and daddy sitting at her little table.

Kidkraft is a leading wooden toy and furniture making that has been around for over 40 years.  Their product list ranges from toddler beds to outdoor play equipment to children's decor and beyond.  My family has used many Kidkraft products over the years and we've been pleased with them.  If you'd like to learn more about the products that Kidkraft has to offer, head over to
