Valentine sticker charts: Beat those kiddy challenges with a bit of love

Helen Neale is a mum of two, and blogs at kiddycharts.com; where she offers free printables, including sticker charts, as well as advice on parenting small people, giveaways and even the odd bit of craft no. She tries to keep a smile on her face about all those little challenges our kids throw at us. Her personal blog, stickersstarsandsmiles.com is a bit less organised; mind the Lego on the floor. Here she muses about the challenges of parenting on a wing, and a prayer with a glass of diet coke in her hand.

It’s a new year, so it’s a time to dust off those aspirations for the start of something special.

Resolutions are scattered about everywhere; some already discarded, particularly those that involve avoiding chocolate. Some may even make it until the end of the month…

But if you are anything like me, a new year starts with a new resolve to help your kids with some of those challenges that perhaps you ignored in the run up to Christmas.

Last week we tackled my son’s incapacity to stay in his bed after we put him down. He needs his sleep, we need our downtime after they go to bed. Getting up and down like a yoyo after lights out wasn’t working for any of us.

Our plan was simple:

  • Reduce the screen time immediately before bed so that TV or computers don’t stimulate him too much
  • Introduce a period of wind down with mum, where we read a story just for him and his sister
  • Let him play in his room and then read in his bed on his own
  • Give him a sticker on one of our valentine sticker charts so that every time he doesn’t get up after we put him into bed he gets a sticker the following morning.

A bit of calm, a bit of love and a little sticker can go along way…

In case you are looking to do similar for this new year and into Valentines, here are a few free gorgeous Valentine sticker charts that your kids can colour in. Get them involved, and the buy in is a lot better :-D

    I was planning to spend some quality time with my wife and wanted to help her with lunch and other things about valentine’s so that she should feel that I still love her and care for her. But I didn’t find a way to keep my kids busy. But me thinks this will be a very nice idea to keep them busy and it will be something creative also. For the rest of day we all will be going to beach and will spend some time and then will have dinner. Thanks for giving this creative idea.
