1. Send the kids to school after a great breakfast

Get the kids ready to learn at school by feeding them a nutritious breakfast. No better time to start than September, which is Better Breakfast Month. Need ideas? Check out these four nutritious, easy, and delicious breakfast ideas. Sept. 1-30

2. Adopt a pet ... rock 

Do your kids bring a pocketful of rocks home from every outing? Or is that just our kid? If it's your kid too, have them pick a favorite to be their new "Pet Rock." Then invite the Pet Rock to spend the whole day with you — including mealtimes and bedtime! — on Pet Rock Day. Sept. 4

Wondering where your local events are?

4. Plan a family day 

Many of us have a three-day weekend for Labor Day, so make the most of it by making it a family fun day! Go on a day trip, have a picnic, or find a new park to visit! Sept. 5

5. Read a book 

Many Macaroni KID publishers are currently reading ParentPreneurs: A Decade of Deals From a Messy Minivan. It's an inspiring book written by Macaroni KID owners Jamie and Brian Ratner! You can get your own copy here just in time for National Read a Book Day. Sept. 6
