My kids love to keep track of what books they’ve read. We made these cute bookmarks so they can write down each book. Print the bookmark on cardstock so they’ll last longer! When they’re filled you can laminate them for longer use.
My kids haven’t been watching much TV lately but they play a lot of games on the ipad or their old leapsters. Right now they’re really into playing Life on the ipad. That was one of my favorite games as a kid, so I get it. Fun game. But is it so great that you should play it two hours a day? No, not really. Behold: the power of the screen time ticket! Give your kids tickets to use for screen time (ipad, video games, TV) to limit how much time they spend watching a screen during leisure time. Free printable tickets!
If your kids are like mine, they tend to be a bit messy and prefer to do most anything other than put their shoes away or clean their room. With four children, our house can go from perfectly clean to looking as if it was ransacked by thieves within five minutes. It’s incredible. Please tell me you can relate so I feel better.
Teaching kids to clean doesn’t have to be like banging your head on a wall over, and over, and over again. Though it will be if you let it.
Want to thank a teacher, a doctor or a nurse? These FREE printable cards are perfect! Just add them to a gift basket or staple to a baggie with a cookie and they’ll know you appreciate them!
