Getting smaller kids ready for school in the morning can be a daunting task, especially if its something new to the mother and child. Here’s a fun way to keep schedule of what to do in just a few quick steps. These are all activities a small kid should be able to do by themselves. They simply finish the task and drop the flash card in the “Done” holder.
The chores are written down in one word for small kids so they can familiarise themselves with the words associated to the actions.
The activities I listed are:
- Make bed
- Feed the dog
- Eat breakfast
- Brush teeth
- Get dressed
- Brush hair
- Grab lunch box
- Grab backpack
What you’ll need:
- Cardboard or project board for the Schedule. I used one of those boards that comes with new sheets… you can also cut a piece off a cardboard box
- Different colors of project board
- Bostik Clear Adhesive
- Velcro dots or a piece cut in squares
- Bostik Blits Stik Super Glue Gel
- Bostik Colour ‘n Paint Twisters
- Small container for the flash cards
- Bostik Prestik
- Bostik Wax Twisters
Cut the rim of the container that the “Done” chores will go into so that it will be flush with the project board.
Use the Blits Stik Gel to attach a piece of project board to the container. Write “Done” on the container with Colour ‘n Paint twisters.
Create your own listed schedule in simple picture cards with project board, using Clear Glue Adhesive and round off the details with Wax Twisters and Colour ‘n Paint Twisters.
Paste the rough part of the velcro at the back of each flash card using Clear Glue. You can keep both sides together but make sure you paste it in the middle of the card so that all the velcro will align neatly when pasted to the board.
Now put glue on the soft side of the velcro and align all the cards to once again make sure the velcro will be in line when the cards are removed.
Fix the container to the project board using Blits Stik Gel and Bob’s your uncle… easy as that! This is so easy you can do it with your primary school kid. Have fun!
