The Afternoon High Five

Afternoon High Five Printable | Life as MOM

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.

For a number of years our family has used the Morning High Five and Evening High Five charts to help our kids keep track of their responsibilities at the start and the end of the day.

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.

Do you have any tricks for afternoon routines?

  1. Thank you so much for doing this! Hooray!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
