Bathroom Decor to Keep Kids Motivated

When my girls were little and struggling through potty training, I tried all kinds of things to keep them motivated. We had sticker charts, pictures, and printables, but it was tricky because they couldn’t read yet. It’s a lot easier to post reminders now that I have 3 readers.

As they’ve grown, we need things to keep them brushing, reminders to flush, and lists to guide them through their morning routine. There’s a lot to remember these days. Brush, rinse, floss, flush. I didn’t mind the simple printouts taped to the mirror, when it was temporary, but it’s clear the notes & reminders are here to stay. I want something that fits into the room’s decor.

A few cheap frames that we already have lying around and some printable art should fit the bill.

Listerine has supplied a great brushing & rinsing calendar for kids. Plus, here are 12 more printables for the bathroom to keep kids on task:

    Change the Toilet Paper
    My favorite printable in this set of four wasn't featured in an image to share with you. "Change the toilet paper roll: It will not cause brain damage. I promise!" Can someone convince the rest of my family?

    By Order of the Management
    Ha! This will catch kids' eyes because it's familiar from public restrooms. It has a very "employees must wash hands" feel to it.

    I have only girls, so this is not a problem I have, but let the bossy management help guide your boys to put the seat down, too.
