My six year old is having a really hard time going back to school on Mondays. We've explored every possible school problem, and after talking to him and his teacher have determined that it's the good old fashioned Monday morning blues. He has wonderful weekends filled with sports, game night with the whole family, quality time with dad, running around with the neighborhood kids (he goes to a private school in a different town), and general non-scheduled fun. It's a bummer to go back to school on Monday.
I've been trying to think of a special MOnday activity to make him look forward to Mondays, but I'm drawing a blank. He gets home late (around 4:30) and has about an hour of homework, so there isn't much time for an out of house activity. He's not much of a TV watcher, although a video and popcorn might be fun. Any suggestions? I thought of letting him pick what's for dinner, but I don't think that's a big deal for him.
I'm open and anxious to hear your ideas.
