Creating a house of order with children can sometimes be difficult. But being a parent to children, and not just a friend, is very important! My goal as a Mom is to teach my kids to be independent, respectful, kind, human beings with manners! That’s why I created this Free Printable Kids Behavior Chart in hopes that it would help you as it has helped me!
About 5 years ago, I was trying to figure out a way to help my son visually see how he was behaving. He was a very difficult 2,3, and 4 year old! I saw one of these awesome behavior charts online and decided to make my own. As my kids are now in school, I have noticed that every one of their teachers uses this same behavior chart (with slight variations) to help kids with their behavior. The best part is that it is effective! It really helped my son with his behavior and he has now done a 180-degree shift (hallelujah!)
It’s Great for Non-Readers
My favorite thing about my behavior chart is the emojis! This is especially great for little kids who don’t know how to read yet. It’s a great way for them to put an emotion to their actions.
Make Your Own Chart Marker
You really could use anything as a marker on your chart for each child. A magnet would work, or I have even been desperate enough to use Sticky Tack before! But if you really want to make it extra cute, I recommend using these flat bottlecaps. In the past, I have printed my kids’ pictures on them so they can easily identify how they are behaving on the chart by looking at which line their picture is on. If you do want to go the extra mile to make the chart more fun for your child, I suggest the following products.
- Behavior Chart Print (download below)
- Laminating Pouches
- Thermal Laminator
- Bottle Caps (plus Epoxy Stickers)
After you have your supplies gathered, print your image on your home printer or take it to be professionally printed. Then you can laminate the sheet so that it will last longer. For the chart marker, you can cut out your child’s photo or even just write their name on a piece of paper and attach it to the bottle cap. Then top it with the epoxy Sticker to give it a finished look.
