Do you have an early riser in your household?
Have you been researching fancy toddler clocks that are meant to help teach your toddler to stay in bed longer?
If you don’t want to fork out a lot of money on a special clock, why not make your own toddler clock?
We can’t guarantee it will keep your kid in bed for longer, but we can guarantee you will have fun putting it together and it makes for a great display in your child’s room. Once the clock is complete, it’s a matter of teaching your child what happens when the short handle sits on each stickered section.
You will need one clock and some stickers from your local discount store. Clocks can be purchase from Target for $5 or Kmart for $3!
Decide on what time you want to add different stickers to correlate with your morning routine. For us, we’re happy for our girls to be up at 6am, have breakfast at 7am and in the car by 8am to be at Kindy/school between 8:30am-9am. Decorate the night and early morning time with stars to mean night time when they should be asleep. We used smiley face stickers to represent time to wake up.
Once the clock is complete, you can put it back together and hang it in your child’s room.
How do you get your kids to sleep longer in the morning? What time do your kids wake up usually?
