Morning routines are helpful for adults, but they’re pretty much essential when trying to get children up, fed, and out the door on time.
Kids’ morning routines are a great way to reduce the amount of stress in your life and get your day off to a better start.
The first step in creating a morning routine for kids is to make a list of all the tasks that need to get done in the morning.
Here’s a sample: Wake Up: 5 minutes Make Bed: 1 minute Get Dressed: 5 minutes Eat Breakfast: 15 minutes Brush Teeth: 3 minutes
After you’ve added all the times your tasks will take, plus added a buffer, use the time you need to leave the house and subtract the time you take to get ready.
You’re almost done creating your morning routine. You’ve got your tasks, how long they’ll take, when you need to wake up and when you need to walk out the door.
You can stop here but sometimes, especially at first, it can be quite helpful to match each task to a time and attempt to stay on schedule.
