Daily Routine Chart
The Monkey & Chops Daily Routine Chart is fully magnetized. The bright, colourful and thick magnets are perfect for little fingers to handle. Attach it to a metal surface where it is highly visible (eg. whiteboard, fridge, magnetic picture board) to provide an easy reminder of your child’s morning and evening routines.
Each Daily Routine Chart pack includes 1 Daily Routine Chart magnet with two rows (for morning and evening routines), 38 task magnets and a dry-erase, magnetic marker pen. The task magnets depict routine tasks that parents often encourage their children to carry out upon waking up in the morning and before going to bed each night. They are of simple and colourful design so kids can easily identify and relate to each task. Click here to order the Daily Routine Chart pack, or here to purchase the task magnets separately.
How To Use The Daily Routine Chart
Children respond well to routine. The Monkey & Chops Daily Routine Chart is designed to provide children with a visual reminder of what their individual routines look like. It aims to encourage your child to learn and understand the order of tasks in their morning and evening routines, whilst developing independence and confidence in performing these tasks along the way.
Each family can individualise their child’s/children’s routine by using the range of task magnets included. By involving your child in the “routine building” process using the magnetized routine chart, your child will develop a sense of ownership of their morning and evening routines. As younger children become more familiar with their daily routines, you will see the enjoyment and satisfaction they gain from completing the tasks “all by themselves”. As they grow older, the morning and evening routines will become second nature and your child will have a better understanding of tasks that need to be completed in the busy morning rush to get the day underway and during the evening in order to wind down before bedtime.
For working parents, parents of multiple children, or, parents who enjoy order and compliance at the start and end of the day, moderation of your child’s behaviour can be achieved by greater understanding of their daily routine. When children know what they are expected to do and have a colourful and easy guide to follow, they are more likely to comply with accomplishing the tasks at hand.
