When our kids are little there are lots of milestones we track - like when they sit, crawl, talk, and walk. But as they get older, there are other milestones they need to reach that aren't tracked as closely! I made a list you can print for free of things not taught in school that every kid should learn. You'll also find many activities on The Trip Clip® website that will help kids learn skills they will need to grow into independent adults. You can try many of these for free, mobile or printed!

Personal Responsibility

  • Teaches:
    • Personal responsibility
    • Hygiene
    • Organization
    • Time management

  • For younger kids, make the list for them, and then have them collect their things to practice counting and organization. Let older kids make their own list and pack themselves - then check their work!

  • A checklist can put kids in charge of making sure they have everything they need - a very important life skill! As they get older, put them in charge of washing their uniform and preparing their own snack, too.

  • Teaches:
    • Independence
    • Nutrition
    • Simple food prep
    • Trying new things
    • See more

  • This list is especially helpful for kids with special needs. It can help them know what's expected of them, and can also prepare them for any changes coming in their day.

  • Executive functioning skills:
    • Planning and prioritization
    • Task initiation
    • Time estimates
    • Progress monitoring
    • Learn more

  • Teaches:
    • Value of consistency
    • How to settle before bedtime
    • Joy of parent/child connection

  • Teaches:
    • All the important steps
    • Hygiene
    • Independence

  • Teaches things not taught in school that your child should know before they graduate from high school!

Home Care

  • Teaches:
    • Cooking
    • Cleaning
    • Laundry
    • Yard care
    • Responsibility
    • Sense of accomplishment

  • Teaches:
    • Cooking
    • Cleaning
    • Laundry
    • Yard care
    • Responsibility
    • Sense of accomplishment
    • How to play

  • Cleaning Checklists teach by breaking down an overwhelming task into smaller ones kids can understand. “Put your dirty clothes in the hamper” is much easier to tackle than “Clean your room.” It also makes it clear to them exactly what your expectations are!

Life Management

    • Counting
    • Letter recognition
    • Reading
    • Finding/comparing prices
    • Weigh produce, calculate price
    • Reading nutrition labels

    • Prices
    • Following directions
    • Reading

  • You can enter any text you want so your child can trace it, and they can even draw a picture for the gift giver. Your child will practice writing and get a good lesson in etiquette to boot!

Transportation

    • Letters, numbers, and symbols
    • Reading simple words
    • Travel safety
    • Airport signs and navigation
    • See more
