Weekly Rhythm Free Printable Cards

Nowadays so much is done automatically we’ve forgotten nurturing a simple routine is for parents and children. We may not need to churn our cream into butter anymore but we can create grounded routines that support our growing little ones.

Assigning age-appropriate chores and responsibilities can help instill a sense of purpose and contribution in your children’s lives. By involving them in daily tasks, you not only lighten your load but also teach valuable life skills. Start with simple tasks like making their bed, putting away toys, or setting the table. As they grow older, you can gradually introduce more complex chores such as washing dishes or helping with laundry. Remember, the goal is not perfection but fostering a sense of responsibility and teamwork.

A Strong Weekly Rhythm:

  • helps children to know what to expect and what is expected of them
  • helps provide security to children who aren’t developmentally capable of understanding a complex and abstract concept such as time yet
  • provides consistent and nourishing activities and themes that nourish our children’s sense of order in the world

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
