Routine charts? Yes, please.
Who has searched endlessly for ways to make life a bit more simple?
Let me tell you this piece of information, first: there are a million and one ways exist to create a daily routine with kids. I think a lot about this topic. Remember when I wrote the post on 12 Tips for a Smoother Morning? How about Ways to Find Your Way Back to Mindful Parenting?
I work on our routine every day.
So, you can trust me, these daily routine charts for kids are the best out there. Your job is to find the best routine, whether it includes a chart or not, that works for your family. I found these amazing daily routine charts on a quest for my family. I thought you might be interested.
Why do you need rock star daily routine charts for your kids?
My sons are 5 and 3.5 years old. So, these daily routine charts are fully vetted for the toddler, preschooler, and elementary aged child in your life! I admit that we have never been great at establishing routine. I have always been stuck between “going with the flow” and planning beyond necessity. Over time I have come to realize that much like a Montessori classroom, at home we must provide a well planned environment. There must be boundaries and structure, yes, but with a lot of freedom within those boundaries.
Now that we have three young children we see the crucial benefit of establishing routine and, maybe even more importantly, slowing down. So, with that introduction, I have been doing a bit of research and, of course, I must share that research with you! Below are the BEST Routine Charts for Kids. Now, which one(s) shall we use? I’ll soon let you know!
By the way, if you are interested in more ways to bring Montessori into Your Home, I wrote an easy to read guide for you.
