Wish I would have discovered this idea 14 years ago! Trace their hand every first day of school . This will make me cry! Original craft is a cute idea also, but I love the idea of first day of school hand prints!
Put a timer on a lamp in your child's room. Set it to where it will turn the lamp on at whatever time they're allowed to get up. Teach them they can't get up until the lamp turns on. :-) A much cheaper alternative to another nightlight available.
