Schedule for Toddlers - 11

On Mondays I am going to have tips on what has worked for me with my many kids.  I have received emails about my daily schedule and so I am going to go in order every Monday.  Please comment with anything that you do or don't do or if this has helped you so we all can benefit from everyone's experiences.

7-8                Breakfast, practicing letters and morning review of the day.
8-9                Morning Task Sheet, get ready basically tidy up and morning chores.
9-10              Free Play w/Mom - No chore time slot...you will be amazed how much your kids will love this!
10-11            Quiet Activities
11-11:30        Clean Up
11:30-12        Lunch
12-12:30       TV/Show
12:30-3:00    Nap/Rest Time 
3-3:30           Snack
3:30-4:00      Read Books
4:00-5:00      Shake Sillies Out
5:00-5:30      Wash Up and Set the Table, Quick Pick Up
5:30-6:15      Dinner

6:15ish - 8pm      Daddy Check List

I am fortunate enough to have a husband who helps.  He used to travel a lot and I would never have a break in my day.  Once he switched jobs and stopped traveling and was home at a reliable time we both decided that he would take the after dinner shift.

He told me it would be easier for him if I had a checklist for him to follow so he wouldn't have to ask me every 5 minutes what is next.  So I made a check list and the kids help him get everything done.  He usually takes this time to play cars or tea party with the kids during this time too.  

We both feel like it is important for the children to get Daddy play time and for him to help in the routine stuff too.  The kids love this time too and it usually involves a lot of laughter.

During this time I usually finish up my stuff - dishes, laundry and all that jazz uninterrupted so when the kids are finally down for the night we get 8-10 to just be together (me and hubster)

If you want a copy of the checklist please email me or leave a comment with your email address and I will sent it PRONTO! well - as close to pronto as possible! :)

hope that helps!

  4. I would love to see it. I am finally starting to put some of this to action and get myself better orgnized and things better planned out. The meal time thing is still another story though. That is probably my biggest challenge. I jst can't seem to like anything I come uo with. I love those websites you posted about though :) I LOVE when they have pictures it makes it so much easier for me to want to make it, and know if I made it right. Thanks for all you do.

  5. Oh, you are a fabulous mom. I love that you have free play with mom instead of chore time. I'll have to try that. My kids have been getting stuck with too many cartoons lately while I'm cleaning.

    I would also love a copy of your checklist when you get a minute.
    Thank you!!!

  9. You forgot to mention what time you do Toddler Boredom Busters. And when do you take your kids to their respective schools? Or when you host preschool or tot school or whatever you call it, when does that take place? (I follow your other blog, as well.) What about errands? Do you never grocery shop?And all that painting you do. And what about your sewing? Schedules are nice, but reality never ceases. So, they're more like guidelines, right? Maybe you need to add that... Not knockin', just sayin'.

    I haven't finished my schedule for toddlers. I haven't posted when I do everything else. I wish you would have just said who you are instead of being anonymous since you "know me"

    I have lots more to post about so stay tuned...I am sure you will!
