Start the new year off on the right foot with some picture checklists for your kids. Instead of asking if they’ve brushed their teeth, packed their homework, remembered their water bottle, and made their lunch, you can ask just one question:
Did you finish your list?
This approach puts your kids in charge of themselves, reduces your mental load, and stops the tiresome nagging that you don’t want to do any more than they want to hear it.
You’ll have hundreds of pictures to choose from, or you can upload your own pictures. You can write your own text, in any language. You can display your list in a number of different ways. Give them all a try to figure out which kind of list works best for your family.
- Magnetic Checklist: Make a custom To Do / Done board and hang it on your fridge, a cookie sheet, or any metal surface. Purchase a pack of 20 pre-printed magnets, or make your own.
- Mobile Checklist: Use your list as an interactive picture checklist from your phone so you can carry it with you anywhere you go.
- Printed Checklist: You can print your list each day and hang it on the wall, put it in a frame or laminate it and use it with a dry erase marker, or make your printed list mobile by using with a kid-sized clipboard.
- Weekly Checklist: Make your list weekly (in horizontal of vertical layout) to track a week’s worth or progress, or to make the list different on different days of the week.
- Any Checklist: Make a morning routine, a school day checklist, a chore chart, an after school checklist, or a bedtime routine.
