How to use Printable Potty Charts
*We completed potty training with the three-day method and then used this chart when our little one regressed after a new sibling was born. It worked great to keep her on track during the regression.
*This potty training chart works great as a resource after potty training or can be used on its own. To use this potty chart when beginning potty training explain and prep your little ones ahead of time. You can read potty training books and watch episodes of shows that help with potty training. Then place a potty nearby (or add a child’s potty seat to a large toilet) and explain how they can earn a sticker after every time they use the potty.
*Once little ones fill the potty training chart printables to the bottom with stickers, you can decide what you would like to reward them with. For some little ones, stickers are a large enough incentive. Some other ideas include alone time with parents, a trip to get ice cream, a sucker, picking out a small toy or trinket, a trip somewhere fun like a park, or anything else your little one may desire.
What are Some Ways to Prep for Potty Training?
Before beginning potty training purchase a child’s size potty and add it to the bathroom. Allow little ones to sit on it, look at it, and see it whenever possible. Exposure is great even if they are not using it.
*Read potty training books in which little ones use the potty. If your little ones have favorite characters be sure to check for books with these characters in to get them excited. Some potty training books with big characters include Daniel Tiger, Elmo, etc…
*Watch episodes of favorite shows that talk about potty training and going on the potty.
*Allow little ones to “pretend” their favorite stuffed animals or toys are using the potty. With a clean potty seat (the one they will be using when they start) have little ones sit their stuffed animals on the potty and pretend they are going.
There are multiple options for these potty training printable charts. Some of the options include a game, some a reward, and some include two different ways to use the potty. Print out which potty training chart you desire and give it a go. Before beginning, print out the potty chart and hang it on the wall near where your child will be using the potty. Hang a page of stickers nearby so they are ready once they go.

Princess, Zoo, and Dinosaur Potty Chart Printables
These three potty chart options include two different sections to fill in with stickers. One section is where they used the potty independently without having to be asked and one is where they said they had to go potty. They come in a princess potty chart, zoo themed potty chart, and dinosaur themed potty chats.
This one works great for little ones who have been potty training for a while. We used this one when our toddler had a regression and would hide when she had to go but we knew she could go independently.
For some little ones, the offer of earning a sticker each time they go potty is reward enough and you don’t need to consider adding a large reward at the end. For others, you may want to add an extra incentive at the end of filling up the chart.
After filling up a side we opted for a movie night, game night, went out for ice cream, or completed a family activity together. Other great ideas for rewards would be a small toy or prize from a prize box, your little one picking dinner, a special treat like a cupcake, candy pieces, etc…
Farm and Space Potty Chart Printable Games
These potty charts turn potty training into a game. Little ones can earn a sticker each time they go potty and make their way down to the finish. Once they get to the finish they can earn an agreed-upon reward. Print another potty chart and play again once finished.
This potty training game printable is great for first-time learners. You can explain the process of potty training, prep little ones by reading potty books and watching episodes of potty training shows, and talk about the sticker process. Little ones will be excited to add stickers and get to the finish.
Included is a farm-themed potty training sticker chart as well as a space-themed potty training game chart.
Spiderman, Mermaid, and Truck Potty Traning Charts
These fun mermaid potty chart templates, truck potty charts, and Spiderman potty charts are great for learners who need a little more immediate reinforcement. These work great with small prizes or treats instead of one large one.
After just six times of using the potty (or sitting on the potty, trying to go, etc…) little ones can earn a small prize or trinket. This could be anything from a single m&m to a sucker, small eraser, new marker, small toy, etc…
There is a section to write down what reward they are working towards after talking about it ahead of time. At the end of the chart you could then give a bigger reward if desired.
So helpful. I will be re-starting potty training soon!
Thanks so much! I hope things go well!
That is thoughtful and encouraging to little ones. I have saved your page for later use. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much!
