It is always a busy morning when the kids have school, but I have found something to really motivate them to get their mornings going…  a few minutes of TV.   I don’t know what it is about TV, but if they are allowed to watch it, they will climb mountains to do so!   This No Screentime Until free printable was a success over the summer with my no screen time summer printable, but I needed to update it a bit for the school year.

No Screentime Printable until
If you want to make your own, you can copy the words below:
No Screentime Until…
*You have said Good Morning (yes, I do require this of our kids- I feel like it is basic manners to say “Hi, Mom!♥” Or Good Morning, Mom!♥” instead of just “I’m hungry” or “I want a drink”.
*Breakfast is cleaned up
*Teeth are brushed and the sink is cleaned up, brushes put away, etc…
*Beds are made
*Pajamas are put away
*Lunch is in your backpack
*Backpack is by the door, ready to go.
*Shoes are by the door, untied, ready to be slipped on.

Once all of these things are done, they have free will to play a computer game, play on an iPod, play on the x-box (Minecraft) or watch a show on TV (usually Wild Kratts).   This is just the extra little push they need to get their things done a little quicker.  They have an hour from start to finish and when they finish quickly and go watch their show, I get myself ready and get the little ones ready to go.

We also have another No Screentime Until Printable set up & ready for you: 

A list of texts on a white background with a blue highlighted text across it.

This one is my favorite: 

This will help with screentime, as well:
Cards to swap chores for screen time by yourmodernfamily
