    A habit tracker printout is a chart that can help you keep track of your habits and goals. It’s a visual accountability tool that keeps you on track to meet your goals. Just write down the habits you want to track and fill in the days you met your goal, leaving blank if you didn’t. To start off, we offer a printable habit tracker in this blog. Teaching children the benefits of positive habits can help them develop good habits that will benefit them throughout their lives. It can help them learn how to set goals, stay organized, and develop self-discipline 


    Benefits of habit tracking for kids 

    Habit tracking can provide numerous benefits to children, including increasing automaticity, encouraging them to repeatedly perform a particular habit, and helping them organically develop good habits while breaking bad ones. It’s easier than ever to work towards meeting major life milestones by monitoring and gradually building on their progress on small tasks they complete each day. 

    Habit tracking can help children develop positive habits by encouraging them to perform a specific task repeatedly, creating a routine around the positive habit that you want your children to adopt and repeat, and helping them cultivate strengths of character. Understanding habit formation can also be helpful when trying to encourage your child to develop good habits – perhaps improving their diet or taking more exercise.  


    Printable habit tracker for kids 

    We’ve created a free, printable habit tracker for you and your child to write down your habits and track them daily. This printable habit tracker template is a great visual tool that can help your kids track their progress and stay on track to achieve their habit goals. 

    Habit tracker template example

    To use a habit tracker for your child, print out the habit tracker PDF linked above. You can also use a laminator and laminating pouches and dry-erase or wet-erase markers to make your habit tracker reusable. To customize your habit tracker, choose a background or frame for your daily habit tracker. You can also choose any target tracking template. Another option is to use editable/customizable rows for daily, weekly, and monthly habits. You can also add stickers to your child to visualize each task or habit to get them more engaged. 


    How to help kids use the habit tracker 

    Let’s look at some pointers for parents to help their kids get the most out of the habit tracker: 

    • Encourage children to develop good behaviors and use charts as an effective visual reminder of what they are working on.  
    • Set consistent media time limits for kids ages 6 and up. 
    • Limit screen time for children between the ages of 2 and 5 to one hour a day. You can use the help of a parental control app like Safes to do this. 

    Safes can help you by offering an activity report of your child’s online activities and setting screen time limits, among other things. You can download it for Android, iOS, and Windows. 


    Here are some suggestions on how to use a habit tracker printout to set goals, track progress, and celebrate achievements: 

    • Keep a log of your children’s behavior, either healthy or unhealthy. 
    • Use a habit tracker to hold your child accountable for achieving your goals. 
    • Reinforce to keep your child motivated. 
    • Help your child find obstacles to their success.


    Examples of habits to track 

    Here are some common habits that kids can track with the habit tracker: 

    • To read 
    • Train  
    • time outdoors 
    • study time 
    • screen time 
    • practicing a musical instrument 

    Habit tracking can be helpful for kids because it creates a visual cue that can remind them to take action, it’s motivating to see the progress they’re making, and it can help start a new habit or keep them on track with behaviors they tend to forget or let slip when things are busy. It can also help break down big goals into small habits, and pursuing these goals can make children feel more confident and in control of their destinies. Let’s look at some useful habits and their benefits.
