Get dressed! Brush your teeth! Eat breakfast! Have you brushed your teeth yet? That doesn’t match. Fix your hair. You still haven’t brushed your teeth? Any of that sound familiar? Not a very super start to the day. So I made this Superhero Morning Routine Printable for Kids to turn the instructing over to the superheroes. This kids’ morning routine chart is a great way to keep children on track with their important tasks. Sometimes, it’s just easier to let a piece of paper tell them what to do rather than repeating it over and over…

Learning With a Morning Routine Checklist in Preschool
morning routine for kids
CREATING DAILY ROUTINES ARE IMPORTANT. CHILDREN FEEL SAFE WITH CONSISTENCY AND PREDICTABILITY.
The superhero theme morning routine list is truly designed to make life easier for everyone! When kids know what is expected of them and have friendly picture reminders, any morning can run as smoothly as the next.
When parents don’t have to spend all of their morning time micro-managing kids, or getting frustrated, then they can do the important stuff on their list, like early morning exercise, make a healthy breakfast, or pack lunches.
This free printable is a great way to create a routine that will reduce stress and promote productive day for all.
If you decide to laminate the checklist, you can let your child check off each item as they complete it.
Especially if you or any of your kids are not a morning person, this routine works! Help your kids develop responsibility, ownership, independence, and more! Here is what’s included in the morning routine template:
- Brush your teeth
- Get dressed
- Fix your hair
- Make your bed
- Eat breakfast

Why Is It Important For Kids To Learn Routines?
Children are naturally curious about everything around them. Learning about the life cycles of living things help them understand the world a little bit better.
How to Make This Superhero Morning Routine Chart
Print the routine. Use cardstock, if desired. Also, laminating is an option if you’d like to have your child mark off the tasks each day.
Hang the routine chart somewhere that your child can easily reference it in the morning. Perhaps on the bathroom mirror, the fridge, or in your child’s room.
Especially before the first time you use the routine, spend some time reviewing it before bed the night before. Talk about the order of events after your child wakes up, practice how to do specific tasks, and really set the stage for morning success.
Kids love dramatic play. Why not dress like superheroes and practice the morning routine, or use action figures to walk through the process.
Switch It Up
Once children are very familiar with the routine, have fun switching it up once in a while. Maybe you complete the tasks in backwards order.
Use the routine poster as a starting point for talking about the routine. What parts are going well/not so well? What can you/your child do differently?
