Family Activity - Getting Ready for Bed

Children need to have a schedule, everyone knows that!  Having a good bedtime routine helps children relax and get ready for sleep.  There are lots of things we can do to set up a bedtime routine for our younger children.  Our kids know the start of bedtime begins with gathering the family for a famiy prayer at eight o'clock.  There are other things that happen after that, baths and pj's for the younger set, saying their own prayers, getting a drink of water and a good book to read.  One thing my youngest boy likes to do is lay out his clothes for the next morning.  He makes a clothes boy on the floor!  He flattens out his clothes on the floor, right down to his socks and hoodie.  Now that it's back to school time in the northern hemisphere, a bedtime routine sure helps with getting up the next morning.

  1. That is so fun! I love to picture the little flat boy on the floor.
    That boy will go far, mark my words. That's not just a little organized. That's a LOT organized! Not like my kids who couldn't seem to find ANYTHING . . . I so agree with you. They need the routine. I love yours!
