A Bedtime Tales Map

Hey everyone!  I've been looking for good ways to motivate my kids at bedtime.  While my husband was deployed it was a struggle for me to get all three kids bathed, teeth brushed, dressed in pajamas and all in bed without some kind of struggle popping up sometime.
During deployment was when I designed this Bedtime Map:

And let me tell you, this worked!  The map helped change our attitude at bedtime around 100%!
Nicole at The Sleepy Time Gal has been kind enough to give this print-out a try and post beautiful pictures of her kids doing each step of the map.  Why don't you check it out here?  The map is free to print out and you can share it with your kids at bedtime to find a renewed excitement at bedtime.
And if there is something on the map you want to change or adapt for your family's specific rituals at bedtime, just email me at

What a great, fun idea. If I only had kids.

I'm going to try it! And I'm not going to translate it either! Lately I'm reading books to my little one both in portuguese and english. I'll keep you post it!

I feel very lucky that i have no shenanigans to deal with at bedtime, though something like this is a really helpful tool.

I love this! If it is ok, I may adapt it for some of the special-needs children I work with. And, I love the new printables page of your blog!
