1. LUNCH NOTES
When your child brings lunch to school, leave a note in the lunchbox or sack. Or simply draw a funny picture.
2. INVITATION TO PLAY
For many kids, the first move they make when they get home is for the iPad or computer. Leave a Post-it® Note on the tablet cover or keyboard challenging them to a collaborative game like Words with Friends or Draw Something at a time when you can take a break from work.
3. TREASURE HUNT
If your kids get home from school before you get home from work, leave a trail of clues on Post-it® Notes that lead them to a special snack. Or to a collection of notes that describe what you love about them.
4. CLASSIC STORIES
If your child is reading a classic story that you read as a kid, leave a Post-it® Note to mark your favourite passage and tell them why. It shows you share something in common while reinforcing the value and importance of reading.
5. GOOD MORNINGS
If you leave for work before your kids go to school, leave a Post-it® Note on the breakfast table or door to let them know you're thinking of them.
6. REMOTE REMINDERS
Are your assignments done? Is your room clean? Use a Post-it® Note near the TV remote to serve as a reminder to stay on task before screen time.
7. STEERING WHEEL
For teenagers, Post-it® Super Sticky Notes can help to encourage responsible choices. Leave a note on a steering wheel – “Be safe tonight.” Or “Please call if you need a ride.”
8. FOLDER NOTES
More and more teachers have their students keep a dedicated folder in their bags to shuttle assignments or messages between home and school. Your child will see this every day. Leave a Post-it® Note with encouragement or well wishes before a big test or activity.
9. TAKE IT OUTSIDE
“Your bike is lonely.” “How many free throws can you hit in a row?” Or “It's a beautiful day to walk the dog.” Leave a Post-it® Note near the TV or game controller that nudges your child to play outside.
