How to Reward Your Kids After SATs on a Budget

SAT Exams Being Taken

One way that you can reward your kids is by treating them to a family day out to show how proud you are of all their hard work. Now that summer is just around the corner, and the temperatures are soaring, day trips are the perfect reward as you get some family bonding time. Theme parks can be a fantastic day out for all the family if your kids are at an age where they will be able to go on most of the rides at a park, and it gives you the chance to have some fun too! If you want to treat your children to this small luxury, you can make it cheaper by packing your own lunch and buying the tickets in advance for a better price.

You can have a family day out on any budget; if you only have a small amount of money to spend, a picnic at a local park can still be fun. All you need to do is buy some food and whip up a picnic, pack a blanket and head to the nearest patch of grass. Even better, you might not have to travel far at all: your back garden can be the perfect place for a surprise picnic that your kids will still love. You can bring out the board games, put on some music and eat outside in the sun!

It can be a somewhat confusing concept thinking of our little ones starting to need their own space. From being tiny, they have been heavily reliant on us and have wanted to be in our company all the time – although we may love this and enjoy spending as much time as possible with our babies, as our children grow, it is natural for them to want to explore a little on their own too.

Family Day Out

Children need a space to call their own within the family home. If you have a larger family, it may be difficult to give every one of your children their own bedroom, but the great news is that they don’t need to have their own bedroom to have their own space. While a private bedroom is ideal, a playroom, conservatory or just a part of the house they can go to with their toys alone to imaginatively play will work just as well.

Now that all of the stress and hard work (for both you and your child) is done, it’s time to reward you both with a little something nice. Having a special meal out for you and your family allows you to show your kids how proud you are. If you want more of your extended family to enjoy the celebration with you, eating out at a favourite restaurant is your best bet. It doesn’t have to be somewhere expensive, and sites like Groupon offer fantastic deals when you book in advance – you could cut your bill in half, so make sure to check these!

You don’t even need to leave your house to have a family meal. All you need is a takeaway menu or your kid’s favourite food. Let your kid pick what they want to order as part of their reward, and as a cheeky unhealthy meal, it will be extra special as they’re used to more healthy meals.

Letting your children invite their friends round and allowing them some unsupervised play in this safe space is a great idea. Of course, we can be within a close distance in case of emergencies, but this time alone with their peers helps them learn how to be a good ‘host’ and to be courteous and kind and to share. Giving our children space they love to be in, and one they feel proud to have their friends around to play in will help to ensure that your child gets on with their peers – not just with you.  

Cinema or Bowling Trip

Giving our children a cosy space to relax in alone can really help too. We have a range of quality, handmade furniture that is designed specially, just for kids (as our name implies). From soft, comfy sofas, to bean bags, tub chairs and more you can give your child the gift of choosing their very own favourite print and furniture item to relax on when they are enjoying some much-needed space of their own.
To see our full range of unique prints, children’s furniture and children’s reading chairs, please visit our website.

Why not take your kids somewhere fun for their reward like bowling or the cinema? Being a parent is hard and expensive, so you might not be able to take your kids to things like this all the time. By saving up some money and surprising your kids on the day, they’ll be chuffed to find out that you have planned something special for them.

There are always lots of new films coming out around this time of year, so whether your little one is a Marvel fan or loves animated movies, there should be something out that they – and you – will enjoy. By going to the supermarket beforehand, you can save on snacks and take in their favourite treats. If your kids aren’t cinema fans, then bowling is a great alternative that brings out everyone’s competitive sides. There are often deals on certain nights that can make the trip cheaper and let you have fun all night long – so keep an eye out!

New Gift for Their Room

If you are looking for something with the wow effect, you could reward your little one to something new for their room. Our Just4Kidz range has several wonderful items that you can choose from with something to suit any style. You can pick from our selection of fabulous fabrics to help brighten their room or get them a new toy box as a treat to store all their toys and books in. If you have a book lover in the family, you could treat them to a new book from Waterstones and a comfy chair from us, so they have a new favourite place to read!If you want to see our full range of children’s furniture, then head to the website here. Make sure you tell your kids how proud you are of them for completing their SATs even if you can’t afford to do something. It’s not always about the reward but rather the acknowledgement that you are proud of them.

When “Made in Britain” really is “Made in Britain”

Many websites, shops and manufacturers state that the products they sell are British made. They buy from UK based companies and pass on their suppliers products and promises, but do they know everything about the product and its component parts?

Here at Just4kidz when we say our products are British Made it’s a claim that we can make with 100% certainty. This is because every item that we sell on the Just4kidz website is made by us in our 2 UK factories. Based in Staffordshire and Cheshire our factories design and manufacture the Just4kidz range from start to finish.

We make the frame, cut, sew and upholster and finally despatch your new piece of furniture.  We source our raw materials, such as wood, fibre and foam from Britain and have our own range of exclusively designed fabrics.

So when you buy from Just4kidz you can be confident that the lovely new piece of furniture you have invested in will be built with British quality that will last.
