Hello! I'm Lorie from Reading Confetti and I'm so excited to be a contributor here at Blissful and Domestic. I blog about children's crafts and activities related to books. I am a reading specialist turned SAHM to a two year old and a four year old who has just started preschool this week!
To help us get into a good morning routine, we made a chore chart in the shape of a sun. I loved this project because my preschooler helped with all of it and I found everything I needed around the house:
orange and yellow scrapbook paper
We started by painting the paper plate yellow.
Once it was dry, my four year old drew a face on it.
We decided what jobs need to be done every morning, before we can leave for school. We wrote each job on a triangle of orange paper. Since my son isn't reading yet, we also included a small clip art picture of the activity. We glued the triangles to the clothespins.
We hung it on the refrigerator where he can easily reach. As he completes each job, he can attach the clothespins to the sun until we're ready to go. (I didn't like how it looked with only 5 sun rays so I also added some plain yellows.)
I'm sure your list will be a little different (does everybody have to force their son to take a potty break?) Or if you struggle more with nighttime duties, you could make a moon with stars around it.
If you liked this craft, you might also like our counting octopus.
Hope your school year is off to a great start and that we see you at Reading Confetti!
