Before the fist bump there was the high five - two people celebrating a win and slapping hands! But somewhere between the original high five and the popular fist bump a new High Five was create by our favorite mom and nurse Shannon Tripp. In an effort to make important daily habits more fun, Shannon came up with the high five chart: the five most important daily tasks that her children needed to complete that day in order to have a happy and productive day. Shannon’s Tip: About once a week I like to offer a reward, like a small treat or extra movie time, when my kids complete their High Five for the day. This makes the High Five chart more exciting for the kids, rather than just a list of chores.
Kids thrive off consistency and understanding expectations. Giving them a routine in the morning can set the tone for the entire day. These are things they know they need to get done each morning before we even sit down to eat breakfast together. The high five can change depending on the season of life, age of kids, or specific needs of the kiddos — however, we have kept it the same for quite sometime. Our kids love it and we love it as it teaches them responsibility and independence!
