It's always hard for us (parents included) to get used to the fall time change mostly because - what in the world do the kids do for that long hour or so between supper and bed. In the summer everyone goes outside until the very last minute but in the colder months it often seems that all the pent up energy comes out and general chaos ensues.
So, bring out the light sticks. I almost always keep these on hand. They're from the dollar tree - this pack had four big ones but usually, I get the smaller pack with 8 bracelets. They are great nightlights when camping and we take them with us to events were a similar thing is often sold for 5 + dollars (like the fireworks or ball games.) They are also really fun inside if you turn all the lights off, put on some fun music, and dance, dance, dance.
