Morning Routine Apps for Little Kids

"Where are your shoes?" "Brush your teeth!" "Hurry!" Sound familiar? Managing the morning rush with kids can be a nightmare. It's especially challenging with preschoolers who are still learning how to be independent and may not be able to tell time. Making a plan together for the morning routine is a good first step. Digital tools that help kids keep track of their own tasks can be useful, too. Try out some of these timers and routine trackers to find one that works for your family, and check out our list of other time-management tools.
