3 Benefits of Visual Calendars for Kids

As a mum of a preschooler, I understand the challenges that come with drop-offs and daily routines. I recently created a simple yet powerful tool that has made a world of difference for my 4-year-old's kindergarten drop-offs and anxiety.
I designed a **Personalised Weekly Schedule Calendar** for her, filled with colourful pictures of each day's activities, including school, playtime, and family moments. Not only has this helped her anticipate what's coming, but it has also given her a sense of control and ownership over her routine.
How It's Helping:
🌟 Anxiety Relief: The visual calendar allows her to see exactly what to expect each day, reducing any uncertainty and anxiety associated with drop-offs and new experiences.
🎨 Engagement and Anticipation: She loves being involved in updating her calendar and looks forward to the upcoming activities, fostering a positive mindset and eagerness to participate.
📅 Ownership and Empowerment: By having her own calendar, she feels a sense of responsibility and control over her schedule, leading to smoother transitions and increased confidence.

Tips for Parents:
1. Personalisation is Key: Tailor the calendar to your child's preferences with vibrant pictures and recognisable symbols for activities.
2. Include Their Input: Involve your child in creating their schedule to make them feel more connected and enthusiastic about following it.
3. Consistency is Comfort: Stick to the routine as much as possible to build a sense of predictability and security for your child.
