This is the perfect, simple bedtime checklist for toddlers and preschool-aged kids with pictures and words to help them each night. Learning these things is so important for a child’s health and well-being, setting them up for success as they grow!
Bath time for toddlers and kids
We begin our bedtime routine with a nice warm bubble bath, it’s soothing and cleansing. Kids are messy, so it’s important to have them bathe each day to rid them of all of the dirt and germs that they accumulate throughout the day. Plus, who wants to get into the bed dirty?
Brush your teeth before bedtime
Teaching kids to get into the habit of brushing their teeth before bedtime is so important, especially after they’ve been using their mouth and teeth all day. That place is bacteria city, so we’ve got to keep it clean! If you have little ones, Orajel™ PAW Patrol™ products are a great way to transition them to fluoride toothpaste to help protect against cavities to keep young teeth and gums healthy.
Go potty one last time before lying down
Make sure you have your kiddos go potty before bedtime, this helps to prevent unnecessary overnight trips to the bathroom!
Reading books at bedtime
This is actually my favorite part of bedtime, sitting, spending time, and reading a book with my kids. According to Scholastic, reading to your kids out loud each night builds vocabulary and fundamental literacy skills. This is so important for a child’s reading and language development, it truly helps kids to become independent readers and foster a love of lifelong learning and success. Here’s a list of the 100 best read-aloud books for kids at bedtime.
Bedtime means lights out!
We all know what this means! In the covers, eyes closed, lights off, and back rubs. Now, it’s time to drift away to dreamland!
