Summer is near and my kid is beyond excited. However, having a special needs kid on the autism spectrum means that I still have to be able to keep him on routine. He's all about visual cues so I knew I needed something fun and interactive. It also needed to have the ability to be updated. 

I first saw the Melissa & Doug Magnetic Daily Calendar and Chore Chart at my local bookstore. I knew that this could definitely work for us. These boards come with tons of magnets to make it fit every child. I couldn't wait to get started.

Gathering up 3M wall hangers, magnet tape and such, I was able to make additional chores and events to personalize the boards even more. I mounted the boards low enough on the wall in his room so that he would be able to change and update them. 

He absolutely loves them! He wakes up in the morning and is eager to see what is going to happen for the day. It helps keep us all on track. What do you do to keep your kids on track?
