We cleaned out the shelves by the front door and created a morning station. There is a place for lunch boxes and school bags, school shoes and morning chart. A while back I posted a toddler chore chart. Today I had Busy help me make two new morning charts, one for her and one for the Beans. Yes, I said the Beans. Yes, he is only 20 months old. And yes, I think/know he can do it too :) This is what the station looks like right now (I'm sure I will be tweaking it over the next week or so):
Busy insisted we label the shelves with a "Morning Stations" sign and put up her most recent masterpiece, an oil pastel on canvas titled 'The Round Rainbow.' :)
This is what their morning charts look like:
When they have completed each item, they can flip the card to close that number revealing a check mark and 'done.'
