A few years ago I created a morning routine checklist for my son to get ready for school. The old checklist had pictures with the words to make it easier for him to use.
The other checklist has served us well, but now that my kids are getting a little older and can both read, I thought it was time to create an updated version.

Free Printable Morning Routine Checklist
This checklist is a simple list of the things my kids have to do each morning before school.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I am a broken record telling the kids the same things over and over every morning. Doing a similar responsibility chart like this over the summer really helped to keep the kids accountable and there was a lot less nagging from me.
Our morning routine looks like this:
- Get dressed
- Eat breakfast
- Brush teeth
- Comb hair
- Check backpack – make sure folders, homework, lunch, and water bottles are in there
- Put on a jacket or sweater
- Go to school – for us, this means walking together to the bus stop
I still make their breakfast and lunches but everything else is their job to complete by themselves. The only thing I have to help with is fixing my daughter’s hair.
Our other morning routine chart had things like “go potty” and did not include combing hair since I used to do it for them.
It also had pictures to help the kids know what to do even before they could read. It is a great first chart for a younger child. This new morning routine printable will definitely help us for the next few years of elementary school.
I laminated this sign and hung it up by our big family calendar. I love anything that helps us have a smoother morning when the kids are back in school.
