This is probably my favorite picture received from a customer. Robin from Texas snapped this picture of her daughter using a Trip Clip grocery list – and showing off her own addition!
“We LOVE Trip Clip!! It gives my early reader reading practice in a practical “real world” way, and gives her a helpful role during grocery shopping. WARNING: with all the word practice, they may edit your list. Haha” — Robin

19 new images to help you make the perfect cleaning checklists for your kids! Lots of good suggestions here from customers. Keep those ideas coming!
Kids hate to clean. Telling my kids that we need to do some cleaning is sure to result in immediate arguments and excuses and attempts to get out of it. And I can’t really blame them. I hate cleaning too.
I have learned, though, that at least SOME of the hatred of cleaning comes from feeling like the chore is overwhelming and never ending. And after stopping to talk to my kids about why this is, it turns out that they don’t have a good idea of what I mean when I tell them we need to clean. To them, it just seems like an unlimited number of chores that they can’t predict and it just goes on and on with no end in sight.
Enter the Cleaning Checklists!
I created these lists to help my kids know exactly what I mean when I ask them to clean a room. They still don’t really want to do the chores, but the grumbling lessens when they can at least see there is a beginning and an end to the jobs expected of them.
To makes these easy to use, I’ve made them available in a number of different ways.
Lots of customers have asked for more detailed and explicit steps for the potty training activity, so I’ve add more pictures to let you make a list that’s just right for your child! See the full set of images here.
I have so many great customers sending me ideas for images to add to the collection – here are some excellent additions to the Morning Routine activity!

Occasionally I hear from customers who have used The Trip Clip® in new and creative ways. Traci from Colorado turned her list into a VELCRO list for kids on the Autism spectrum. The great thing about a VELCRO list is that the boards can be carried anywhere, they can be used at school as well as at home.
“I know your product was not originally intended for special needs kids, but I just want to say how much I love having it at my fingertips for use with children that are on the Autism spectrum. I’ve made many visual schedules/checklists by slightly modifying your product from its original intended use.
I used the weekly chore chart option to print all the pictures I needed for [my daughter’s] daily schedule, but I wanted movable pieces. Once I printed, I cut the pictures apart to make individual pieces, laminated them, and attached them with velcro. Many of the pieces I used the custom feature to make them more specific.”

It’s soccer season, and at my house that means lots of time on the soccer field. Here are a couple of printable pages that can help make soccer season a little easier!
For the soccer player: a packing list can be a great way to make sure you don’t forget anything. We just keep a copy of this hanging on our wall as a reminder before we walk out the door.
For siblings, I like to bring some activities so they don’t get too bored. There are many option for Siblings on the Sidelines on The Trip Clip, but Soccer Bingo is one of our favorites. You can print a new one for every practice or game and have fun finding them all!
