Getting ready for school in the morning is no easy feat, especially when little ones can’t remember what they need to get done. Make things easier for everyone with these crafty morning magnets. They’re an easy reminder that will help get everyone out the door on time.
Things you will need:
- Markers or crayons
- A pencil
- White index cards
- Store bought magnets or the free ones you sometimes get from local businesses
Step 1: Cut your index cards in half. It might help to fold them in half first so you have a nice line to cut on.
Step 2: Discuss with your child each of the tasks you expect him to do in the morning before school. Maybe he needs to get himself dressed or make his bed. Once he knows what will be expected of him he can draw each activity on one of the cards. It might also help to write the task at the bottom so he has both the visual and written reminder.
Step 3: If you’re using the free magnets like I am, cut them into small pieces that will fit on the back of your cards.
Step 4: Glue the magnets to the backs of each card. Let the glue dry.
Congratulations! You have made some easy morning magnets! Stick them on the fridge as a reminder to the kids about what they need to do in the morning to get ready. Once a task gets completed, say getting dressed, remove the corresponding magnet from the fridge so everyone knows what still has to be done. Did you do this project? How did it turn out?
