The My Busy Day
set includes a full colour A4 vinyl magnet chart, to put on the fridge or any magnetic surface. PLUS 50 Magnetic activity tiles - each with fun, clear illustrations and a title.
Activity tiles are colour coded, to help children group activities and understand routines :
- Light Blue activities occur in the morning; like breakfast, and getting dressed.
- Dark blue in the afternoon and evening; like dinner, bath time and sleep
- Purple signifies active things like going to the park, gymnastics and swimming
- Red activities are special times, like holidays, parties and cuddles
- Orange activities are sedentary, like television time
- Lilac activities are social, like kindy, childcare and playgroup
- Green items will need a parents guidance, like car time and shopping
- Brown tiles are spares- for you to customise
The left side of the chart is green with space for 7 morining activities. The right is blue for 7 afternoon activities. You assign the tasks in the left columns and when tasks are completed your child can slide them across to the right column. At the base is a puple section where you can place reward stars.
