Why I made my own printable daily routine checklist for kids
We are only on week 2 of coronavirus social distancing and this extrovert is already going a little stir crazy!
How are you doing?
Look at me. I’m trying to have a conversation with you through a blog post. Isolation is not my favorite.
Anyway, back to why I made my own printable daily routine checklist for my kids. I made this because our daily routine has changed big time due to coronavirus. I know things will eventually feel normal, but right now, everything feels so strange and new. I can’t imagine how crazy this change feels to a kid!
Since I know that kids thrive on routine I immediately made a routine/ daily schedule for our kids.
This schedule is great for me, but I don’t expect my 3 kids- ages 6, 4, and 2- to refer to my schedule complicated schedule to know what to do next.
To make this transition easier for them, I made a checklist of things that they need to do every single day before they can have technology time. I printed it, laminated it, and let them check off the list every time they finish something.

I bought mine at Walmart for less than $20 on sale. It has been one of the best purchases I’ve made with kids. I laminate almost every printable I make in order to extend the life.
Here is a list of other reasonable priced laminators that you might like too.

I don’t know about you, but I often times get frustrated when I search the internet for printables. I usually have a very specific idea in my head and can rarely find what I need.
That is why I love making my own printables.

The really cool thing about technology these days is that anyone can make their own printable if you have access to a printer.
I love to use Canva to make printables like this because it is free and accessible online. As much as I love software like Photoshop and InDesign, I really love free online products!
