What Time Is It?

For some parents, bedtime is the worst time of day. If you're looking for ways to make the evenings easier for your toddler, this chore chart may save you. It was designed specifically with bedtime in mind including chores like brush teeth, bath, get dressed and read a book. The illustrations next to each chore are great for non-readers, and there's also a morning chore list! You can download from graphic designer Alexa Zurcher's store by clicking here.  Slip the checklist in a frame, grab a dry erase pen and get started.

Available at alexazdesign on etsy.com, $5.
