KEEPING the kids entertained all day long is a chore, and some parents have probably run out of ideas after being home with them 24/7.
In a bid to give her routine-loving four-year-old some structure to her day, one mum came up with a nifty way to ensure she always has something to do.
The mum took an ordinary clock and divided it into sections, including craft time, learning, quiet time, TV time and playroom.
She added colourful drawings to make it easier for her daughter to understand what each segment is, with the day running from 7am to 7pm.
The mum shared her simple idea to Facebook group Kmart Home Decor & Hacks Australia, saying: “Made this a long time ago with the kmart clock to help give some rough structure to miss 4's days.
“We don't follow it strictly but she loves routine and often checks it then gets inspired!
She loves routine and often checks it then gets inspired!
“I just removed all but the hour hand and stuck a sticker on the end of it so it's easier for her to track.
“Thought I'd share incase it inspired anyone.”
Hundreds of parents have liked the post, claiming they’re stealing the idea for their own kids.
One mum wrote: “Love this idea!”
Another said: “It def inspired me, I love it !”
A third raved: “My daughter thrives off of routine and always asks me what time we’re doing certain things so thank you this is a massive help!”
While this parent added: “This is a pretty cool idea.”
And this mum shared her weekly menu, cleaning rota, shopping & to-do lists on the fridge & parents dub it the ‘control centre’.
While this woman shares simple trick which makes sure her house is ALWAYS clutter free – and it works with laundry too.
