Create structure in the chaos of back-to-school season with this easy after school routine clock.
The clock is color-coded so that kids can easily follow along and know what task they should be working on. Having structure in the evenings helps develop an easier bedtime routine, which is essential for kids. Their brains are working overtime, so make things as easy as possible for them!
I’ve seen a clock like this floating around online, but couldn’t find the original source of the image. So, we decided to make our own!
After School Routine Clock
Here’s what you need to make this after school routine clock:
- Wall Clock
- Permanent markers (5 colors)
- Printed list of activities
Remove the back off the clock so that you can access the face.
Use the markers to color sections of time for the different activities.
Our schedule is:
- 4-5 pm Homework Time
- 5-6 pm Play Time
- 6-7 pm Dinner Time
- 7-7:30 pm Bath Time
- 7:30-8:30 pm Bed Time
Print off your list of activities and color around each section to correspond with the colored section on the clock.
Make sure to hang your list of activities below the clock for easy access.
This is just one fun way to organize for school. What is your family’s after school routine?
