Free Printable: Morning Routine

Each week in 2018 I will post a free printable on my blog that you can print and use as many times as you want with your own family.

A solid morning routine can make a world of difference when you’re trying to get the kids out the door for school every morning. This picture list is simple, nice to look at, and works well for kids of all ages. I used one with my kids until they were around 10 or 11 and could remember all of this on their own.

You can print this as is for free, or edit it to make it just right for your family.

Here are the best things about having a printed morning routine hanging on the wall

  1. It removes the nagging. Everyone knows what the expectations are so I don’t have to nag, I just ask how they’re doing on their list.
  2. I don’t have to keep it in my head! Before kids I never knew how mentally taxing it would be to keep so many different things in my head for so many people all at once. With the list on the wall, I don’t have to keep any of it in my head – with one glance we can all see what’s done and what needs doing.
  3. It puts the responsibility for getting ready for school firmly on my kids’ shoulders, not on mine. I still help them, and monitor their progress, but we all know it’s THEIR list, not mine. I’m not the one who needs to accomplish these tasks, and having their name at the top helps make that clear to everyone.  It removes me as an opponent and lets me be a support.
  4. We are all less likely to forget something when it’s all written down!
