These calendars for kids help keep your day on track!


Parents know all too well just how important structure is for their kids’ wellbeing. From sticking to a bedtime routine to managing weekend activities, kids thrive on routine, while parents thrive on the organizational aspect of it all. We understand that you are managing a new normal with kids at home for the next few weeks (or even months) and that things may feel harder than they ever have before.


Parents who aren’t normally firm with schedules (read, us) are now having to plan their children’s entire day, including remote learning, fun educational activities, meals and playtime. But even those parents who were great planners and organizers prior might be finding themselves overwhelmed at all their sudden responsibilities. 


Luckily, there are tools to help. In fact, something as simple as a daily calendar or schedule can work wonders when it comes to keeping kids on track. A lot of times, children love taking ownership of their activities and responsibilities as it gives them a sense of individuality and control. Planning out the day’s activities the night before can prepare you for a successful next day. Plus, the calendar can be used for their benefit and yours. If kids become restless and bored, remind them to check the time, then the calendar, to see what’s on the agenda. Boredom is banished, and that’s one less thing for parents to worry about. 


Use the eight calendars and charts on this list to plan lessons, physical activities, breaks, meals and even chores to keep your kids on the right track for when school finally starts back up again.
