Find out a simple daily toddler routine
I am a morning person so I wake before my children and start my morning routine. Most days I wake up at 5:30 am pray, read the bible, shower, get dressed, and prepare breakfast.
If you are not a morning person and you work late at night you can wake at the same time as your toddler.
Wake the toddler up and start the morning routine include getting dressed, and make the bed.
If your toddler is a morning person have a morning rule for him. In my case, they remain in bed until 7:30 am (we have a toddler alarm clock that we set). At this time the toddler plays quietly in her room.
Breakfast and brush teeth
Read, craft and play. Also, school-going time. At this time I do laundry and clean morning dishes. Sometimes I engage in the activities like coloring using such coloring books.
Independent playtime or go out- Train your toddler to play alone for an hour each day.
If the weather is good we go for a 1-hour walk.
Back from out and have Lunch
Nap ends- during naptime, I work on my blog
Snack and screen time. If not screen time they play outside with neighbor children.
At this time I update my social media account for 1 hour.
Then afterward prepare dinner
Get ready for bed
Bedtime routine including reading books, brushing teeth, snuggles and hugs. At this time I also do my evening routine.
The above routine might change in case your toddler wake to get to daycare. In such a case the toddler is supposed to sleep early between 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm and wake up between 6:00 am -7:00 am.
Those who stay at home they can get to bed at 8:00 pm and wake up between 7:00 am-8:00 am.
Every family has a different schedule so find what works best for your family
If you want your toddler to remember their routine you can purchase a routine card and hang them in the appropriate room.
For instance, hang morning and bedtime routine cards in the bedroom, mealtime routine cards may be in the dining room, and bath routine in the bathroom.
You can also decide to set an alarm to remind them
