Do you see all the pretty bedtime chart printables on Pinterest and Etsy and wonder if there is a better way?
One night as we were trying to establish a bedtime routine for our child and I needed to think of something fast….. So in half an hour you can have a bedtime chart provided you have the materials on hand.
- One piece of cardboard 8 1/2″ x 11″
- Recipie cards
- Blue Tack
- Pencil crayons
- Fame stand
Time to complete: 1/2 hour
Can’t recall where I got this piece of cardboard….. but if you have a binder that is falling apart or a cheap one you can take apart this is the same type.
I found that using recipie cards were a good way to present the bedtime to-dos as visuals help to reinforce what we need to do before going to bed. My drawing skills are not great but it has worked.
Then this where I got creative…. Now you don’t have to put numbers on it but it helps also with numeracy skills, also helps for placement of blue tack. The stickers are Jolee branded from Michael’s.
Now it is put together, using a frame stand is better than trying to get it to stay on the wall.
There you have it a quick and easy bedtime chart when you need something fast. We didn’t have to use this chart for that long but it’s still a great tool nonetheless.
Here’s to overcoming the bedtime struggles! We are all in this together.
