Children’s Daily Routines

Today I’m sharing my 4 youngest kids morning & afternoon routines. I would love for them to do the lists in order, they love to not do the lists in order. I try not to stress about it, as long as they mostly get everything done. I don’t always get everything done on my lists, so I can’t expect more of them. And if they’re doing their schoolwork in pajamas? At least I didn’t have to tell them to do their schoolwork, as I would have told them to get dressed first!

These are their regular jobs to do. We do ask them to help us do other things as needed, for example, they have to help with the goats sometimes. Or help dad with projects.

These lists are their summer lists, as you can tell by the gardening and weed wacking. lol The laundry on their lists is their own clothes. They don’t wash their clothes every day. This is the summer schedule, and since we hang out clothes out on the line, it’s on the list every day, they just pick a sunny day. When we change to the winter schedule, they have an assigned laundry day.

They do have evening chores to do, but our evenings are more relaxed with Dad home, so they don’t have a written list.

I hung their lists on their bedroom doors, so they can easily refer to them as they work.

  1. Great routines! I have to start my boys on that now. They are still little, so hopefully it will be easier to instill the idea of a routine into them. 😀

    I love routines. If I didn't have routines there is no way I could do it with three kids and want more.

    Thanks for sharing :)
