This free printable habit tracker for kids can help your child develop strong, healthy habits and cultivate their intrinsic motivation. My daughter loves coloring and feels so proud when she gets to color in her circles for the day. I hope your family also enjoys using this kid’s habit tracker printable!

This habit tracker for kids is designed to increases your child’s intrinsic motivation and sense of accomplishment. That’s why there is no “reward” box to fill in on the bottom. The book Punished by Rewards by Alfie Kohn makes a compelling argument for avoiding rewards as they’re commonly used. Kohn says we should try to foster intrinsic motivation, not extrinsic motivation. I highly recommend listening to the audio book version. Kohn reads the book, himself, and it’s interesting to hear how he reads it and what he emphasizes.
- Kohn, Alfie (Author)
- English (Publication Language)
- 448 Pages - 09/01/1999 (Publication Date) - Mariner Books (Publisher)
Whether or not you chose to use rewards or incentives in your family is entirely up to you, but I do encourage you to explore the idea of using rewards sparingly. If you read Punished by Rewards, I think you’ll agree.
Materials needed for kid’s habit tracker printable
You don’t need much to print and use this kid’s habit tracker – just your printable PDF and access to a printer. But there are a few other things you might want in order to make your habit tracker reusable and easy to use.
Materials you may want include:
- Card stock
- Laminator & laminating pouches
- Dry or wet erase markers
- Poster putty, magnets, or tape
If you laminate your page, your child can use the same tracker multiple times. Just erase and start over again! On the other hand, you may prefer to have them complete a new page each week so they can look back on their progress. The choice is yours and depends entirely on your situation and child.
Whether you decide to reuse the page or not, magnets or poster putty can help you display the chart somewhere visible. Keeping a habit tracker visible and accessible is key to success.
The habit tracker printable has space to record the week and track six habits. You don’t have to use all six lines. As your child completes each habit for the day, they can color in the corresponding bubble, as shown below:
Children learn through observation, so make sure to grab yourself a free printable habit tracker for adults so you can set a positive example.
