Mommy Tip # 1 - Make charts

I've learnt it always makes things exciting for little ones when they can see with their eyes there is something to look forward too.

I make monthly charts for Bunny girl with the various events planned for the month. (Playdates, parties, church etc.) Since Bunny girl is too young to read, I represent certain events with a picture. If she has a birthday party to go to that month, we have a picture of a birthday cake on the date of the party. When we were going to Disney earlier this month, we had Mickey pictures stuck on the days we would be there. Similarly a trip to Sea world, San Antonio had pictures of dolphins.

As a countdown, every morning after breakfast, she puts a sticker, in the square, for that day and then gets to countdown to the next fun event planned. This also helps with her counting, as she counts down the number of days left to go before her 'fun event'

Try this out....its lots of fun and at the end of every month the chart becomes a keepsake for you as a reminder of the fun things your family did that month.

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog! It's so exciting to see comments! I went like 10 postings before I ever received a comment! This is so much fun!

I love the idea of the calendar. I find that I'm always "creative" for other people but tend to leave it out when it comes to my fam. I need to get things rolling around this house and that sounds like a good starting point!

This is a really cute idea! I'm just starting to "preschool at home" my toddler this week, so I think I'll add this activity to our repertoire! Thanks for visiting my blog during UBP 2009. Hope you had a great party week and made lots of new bloggy friends! Good luck in the prize drawings!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. You are a good momma to do charts. As for me, I call it a win if we actually do anything beyond school and homework!
