Morning Routine Cards for Kids

Routine Cards for Kids by Three Little Monkeys Studio I don’t know about your house, but getting three people ready for school in the morning can be a mind-numbingly stressful event. I feel like I ask them if they brushed their teeth approximately 2,384 times and repeatedly beg them to run a comb through their hair before people think we’re growing dreads. They are getting old enough that one would think some tasks could be accomplished with little prompting on my part, but … you know how kids are. <sigh> Good thing they are cute!

To hopefully (fingers crossed) make mornings a little easier, I developed these  routine cards which I am sharing as a free download to all of you. I kept the tasks pretty basic, as mine are still youngish with a reader, beginning reader and a preschooler. So images can help when the words don’t make sense just yet.

I made a set for getting ready in the morning, a set for getting out the door for school and a set for bath time.

Three of the most important things to accomplish before heading out the door, and then a simple reminder. Before my kids jump out of the car, I always remind them to be patient and kind to others.

    LOVE these! Best designs I’ve seen! It would be great if more were added for bedtime & chores too! It would be perfect for the littles that are just learning to get ready on their own.
