Help guide your young child through everyday tasks with these Simple Directions for Young Children Life Skills Cards.
Each card serves as a reminder of how to carry out a task and allows children to eventually take on tasks independently – helping them to feel greater confidence and self-reliance.
Common daily tasks include:
- Brush teeth
- Wash hands
- Clean up toys
- Make a snack
- Get dressed
- Get ready for bed
- Get ready to leave
- Make bed
- Go to potty
- Take a bath
- Take a shower
- Tidy room
Each card contains four to six steps illustrated with images and words, allowing both non-readers and readers to follow along.
After purchase, the Simple Directions for Young Children will arrive in your inbox as a PDF.
Simply print out each card and place it in a prominent location where your child can refer to the directions when necessary.
For greater durability, the cards can be laminated. It’s recommended that only heavy stock paper (110#) be used before lamination.
The blank card at the end of the PDF can be edited, allowing you to create customized directions and images for your child. In order to edit, download the latest free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader: www.get.adobe.com/reader.
