How to Make a Bedtime Routine Book

Creating a “My Bedtime Routine” book can help your child understand and follow the steps to get ready for bed. Customize the book to include the steps in your family’s routine.
Routines help children know what to expect and what is expected of them, which is why they help children feel more secure and comfortable.
If going to bed is difficult for your child, creating a routine together and making a “My Bedtime Routine” book can help give them some control over the situation. You can also listen and sing together to a bedtime song, “Bedtime! Bath, brush teeth, PJs, story, and song!” You can even make up your own words for the things you do in your family to get ready for bed.
How to Make a “My Bedtime Routine” Book:
Pictures from magazines or photographs of your child
Index cards or paper
Glue, tape, or stapler
Hole punch
Notebook ring, yarn, or string
Crayons or markers

1. Have your child cut out pictures from magazines to create a bedtime routine book. You could even make simple drawings of different things children do to get ready for bed, like:

  • Put toys away
  • Put on pajamas
  • Brush teeth
  • Wash face and hands
  • Read a story together
  • Talk about your day
  • Say prayers
  • Kiss and hug goodnight

2. Together, you can make a book about your child’s bedtime routine using pictures. Paste or tape the image of the practice to each index card or piece of paper. Your child can color the card, and you can add words, as well.

3. Punch a hole in the corner of each sheet so they can be held together with a notebook ring, yarn, or string to make this your child’s personalized bedtime book.

Making a personalized rhyme can help your kid too. One can try and test what works for your kid. So, get set to craft with your child to make a bedtime routine!
