We have just been getting back into the swing of routines the last few weeks and are preparing for more on our plate next week. The boys are BOTH going to start soccer! With multiple kids in sports and my littlest on the sidelines it can make for chaos! There are two essentials for simplifying the running around sport creates. My sports busy baskets we use are such lifesavers and I’m excited to share!
Our boys are so excited this season for soccer because for the first time they will both be playing sports. I’m thrilled to be watching my little ones enjoy a sport I played and loved in my youth. You can have a long list of things to take to your sports events. The list can include chairs, umbrellas, blankets, water bottles, sun glasses and the list goes on.
I have found even if I don’t have all the plethora of items listed above for our sports weekends but I have TWO MAIN essentials, sports days flow better. When I have go-to snacks and things to keep my children busy (especially the sideline supporters) my sports time with my kids is SO MUCH easier! My kids are happy, entertained and fed which makes life less stressful for this momma!
This is how I put together my sports busy baskets:
Busy basket materials:
- Plastic caddy basket with handle
- 2 snacks, balance carbs with protein
- Let the kids choose 3-5 of their favorite small toys
- Crayons and small pocket notebooks
- A POWERADE
After you gather all your items from Safeway in the beverage aisle, store them in the basket and you are prepared for the fun and busyness sports season offers. I love the caddy style of the baskets because my kids can carry them for themselves! Score!
I am wishing you all a happy sports season this year!
