This free printable screen time reward chart is a great way to limit screen time and encourage positive behavior at the same time! Screen time is a favorite pastime in our home. My preschooler adores educational TV shows and iPad apps. Even though it’s educational, we still try to limit screen time. Instead of setting a strict time limit we use screen time as a reward for a job well done. This free printable will help you do the same.
And with the help of our sponsor Verizon FiOS, that screen time can be spent watching one of many recorded TV shows or playing on a tablet with super fast and secure Verizon FiOS Quantum Speed Internet. I love that you can record programs because our screen time doesn’t take place until after dinner, not exactly when you find the best kid shows scheduled. Plus, if my son has a rough day and earns little or no screen time, it helps that his shows aren’t going anywhere and he can try again the next day.
Free Printable Screen Time Reward Charts
There are two versions of this chart. One is task based: there are lines for you to write the tasks your child can perform in order to earn stars, such as clearing the table or brushing their teeth. The other is day based, this simply has the days of the week and you can reward stars each day however you see fit. The day based chart is great if you want to “catch your child being good” without specific chores or tasks.
You will want to choose fit to printable area when you print. You can print a new one each week. Or laminate it/slide it into a page protector and use a dry erase pen.
