Routines are important for kids and for adults. When we have set tasks for certain times of the day, we add a rhythm to life. It helps kids mark the passing of the day and grounds them. I think routines add comfort and familiarity to an ever-changing world.
Establishing afternoon routines
Amy recently wrote to ask for an afternoon high five printable. What a great idea! It’s an ideal checklist/visual for kids to complete after school.
You can print the pre-filled version that lists typical after school tasks or download the blank form and fill it in with the routines that fit your family.
Post the chart in easy view and help your kids establish a new afternoon routine that will give rhythm to their days.
