Morning High Five
Years ago when I had 2 toddlers and a newborn I made this chart and implemented 👋 Morning High Five 👋 into our daily routine. Almost 7 years later it's still working!!! hashtagallthepraisehands
I talk about the chart and how we have been using it in our home here: 👋 Morning High Five 👋 (on Periscope)
1. Make bed
2. Get dressed & put pj's away
3. Eat breakfast
4. Brush hair & teeth
5. Happy household helpers
It's more pleasant of an experience to ask, "have you done your high five?" than nagging about brushing hair and making beds. Number 5 changes every day depending what needs to be tackled. Starting a load of laundry, washing dishes, cleaning toilets, vacuuming, pushing in the dining room chairs. I have a mental list of these tasks to hand out, but they are all things that are expected because you are a part of our family. Chores are a drag and jobs are a privilege, but responsibility is a part of growing up.
Here is the FREE printable just for you!
