Getting children ready to leave the house can feel like a challenge bigger than Ben Hur.

Genevieve Matthews along with her children Lucy and Henry have come up with a solution; An activity book, poster and card game all bundled together in a pack called School's Coming (the name 8 year old Henry came up with of course)

Genevieve talks through how to make mornings less nightmare-ish, and Henry and Lucy weigh in with how they find mornings now, compared to when they had less routine.

For more on the Matthews’ kit School’s Coming check out their website.
