Free Printable Morning & Bedtime Routine Charts {That You Can Edit!}


{*Edited to add 6/18/2013: Apparently some people were having trouble downloading the charts. I have added new download links for readers who have an older version of Microsoft Word. Hopefully, everyone is now able to download them without any problems. If anyone has a problem, please leave me a comment. I can't fix what I don't know! Thanks!*}

Routines can be very helpful in making a household run more smoothly. I designed these charts to help make routines run more smoothly. These provide a visual way for kids to see what they need to do during each routine time without you having to tell or remind them of each step. There are lots of charts on the internet to help with routines that are very good. I created my own because no two households are alike. Some things that we incorporate into our routines are not necessarily in someone else's (and vice versa). For example, my daughter needs to brush her hair in the morning, but my son doesn't. Most charts did not have anything about vitamins on it, and this is part of our routine.

Vitamins not part of your routine? No problem! Because no two households are alike, these charts are fully editable. Want to change "Comb hair" into "Pick up toys?" No problem. Just switch out the comb for a clipart of toys and edit the wording. Viola! Personalized routine charts. I hope you find these useful in making your mornings and bedtimes go more smoothly!

Each chart is available in 5 colors: pink, blue, purple, green, and a generic gray. The colors are editable also.
To edit the charts, you will have to download them to your own computer, and then edit in Microsoft Word or comparable program.

If you have any trouble downloading, editing, or just have general comments, please let me know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy!

{Note: These charts are for personal use only. You may link to this post, but please do not link to the charts directly or upload them to your own site/blog. Thanks!}

  2. I am such a disorganized person, I might just forget to look on a chart. But I can try and make life easier with your super gift. Thank you.

    1. The chart is actually for the kids to look at, so you don't have to be organized! I am going to laminate ours so they last longer. You can tack them on the wall or just keep them on the kids' dressers or somewhere else where they have easy access to them. Then all you have to say is, "Go do your morning chart," and they can go grab their chart and follow the routine on their own. Makes mornings and bedtimes easier and less work for mom!

  3. What great charts. I love that they are so colorful! So smart to add the pictures with the words. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I made up a series of charts (one for each weekday and one for weekends) that was mostly comprised of morning and night time routines. Such a vital help in keeping the kids on track. My three year old loves to run and check what we're up to!

    1. Did you make your own or were you able to edit mine? I agree--I think it helps SO much! We started doing routine cards last year, but I decided to switch to a chart so I could laminate it and just keep it in their room and they could see it all at a glance. My kids are almost 7 now (twins) and even at their age it is SO helpful in making before homeschool and bedtime go more smoothly. I will be making chore charts at some point in the future, which has helped our house so much in keeping all the kids stuff put away every day!

  5. These routine chart printables are a great idea, Autumn! With 3 kids in the house, I'm sure this will come in handy not just to establish a routine, but so they can learn to be responsible too. I'm gonna print mine with chores in it for the 2 older kids. It's great that these can be edited too, so I can pick colors that can save on ink because I'm currently running low. Hehe!

    1. Thanks, Shelley! I am so glad you found them useful. I am actually planning on making editable chore charts as well at some point. In the meantime, you can absolutely edit these to include chores. :)

  6. Hi, I've been looking for an editable chart (ironically one reason was none I found had "vitamins" on the list of to-dos), so thank you so much for these. But for some reason my word isn't allowing me to edit..it can't even read it. Something about "encoding". Do you have any idea how I can download the charts for microsoft word specifically?
    THanks again.

    1. Ok, I *think* that I must have a newer version of Microsoft Word and this is why it was giving you problems. I have added new download links for readers who have an older version of the program. If you still have trouble downloading, please let me know, and I'll see what else I can do!
