Kid’s Morning Routine Free Printable Cards

It’s back to school time!

One of my favorite bloggers, Amy Locurto created these fantastic printables to get your kids doing their stuff.... Aren't they great?

Getting back into a routine will be the hardest change for us. We are NOT morning people, so I made these to hang in my kid’s rooms for them to remember what they need to do. I’m crossing my fingers these fun cards help speed things along!


Choose cards for boys or girls, just click the image you’d like to download and print.

It's CD Calendar Update Time - 2010 pages are here!

Every year since 2007 , fellow demonstrator, Catherine Harwood has a tradition of making stamped calendar pages that fit inside a plastic CD case -- the kind that open backwards so they stand up as a holder. She first showed them in this post which has some great tips you might want to review. That post also has a link for the plastic CD calendar cases that I use. Plus I have photos of my 2007 calendar to give you an idea of how to decorate your pages -- just check out the CD Calendar photo album in the bottom of her blog's left side column.

A reminder on how to use these: I print them out on Stampin' Up's Whisper White card stock -- you will get two of each month on one sheet. Then they have to be trimmed -- and she designed them flush left so you only have to make a couple of cuts. That means after printing you trim off the right side so its margin is equal to the left margin. (final calendar sheet is approx. 4 & 3/4 inch wide, but that width can vary based on how wide your CD case is.) TIP: Make sure it fits inside before you cut them all. You then cut the card stock in half vertically and each calendar page is 5 & 1/2 inches tall. You have to download each month's pdf file to have all the months for 2010. Enjoy -- and if you make these, let us see what you have done with them! I would love to share them with Catherine!
