Need a Kid's Schedule?

Happy Monday!

I won't lie, just like you I am hitting the snooze button and hoping today will just go away but as much as I tried I still had to get up. There is goood news though, we get to spend a little time together. Getting your kids on a schedule is no easy process but then it is accomplished then it feels so good. Kid schedules dims the constant questions of "Can I play video games?", "Can I watch TV?", "When can I have a snack?", "Is it time for me to play on the computer yet?" and kid's famous line "When is dinner? I'm sooo hungry".

I find it to be very helpful when you are trying to get dinner ready or other things you got scheduled to do for yourself, maybe even sneaking some talk shows time on television. This helps keep kids knowing what they are supposed to be doing and it will help them in the future as well.

There are many ways you can make up a schedule for them. This one is one I have worked on this weekend for my siblings. It's short and sweet.


I used Microsoft Word, inserted a table and images from Clip Art. I chose to change the picture colors.

Print it out.

You can laminate it. I don't personally own a laminator so if you are like me you can use this Resusable Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets by Studio. It comes with three sheets and only costs $2.00 at Dollarama. However don't let the reusable fool you because I tried it and it is not reusable.


Follow the instructions that they provide for you.


Place the schedule facing downwards (on non-sticky side) and smooth the sticky side over.


There you have it! Now all you have to do is figure out where you should hang this up. Hope this inspired you to make one for your kids. Enjoy!
