I love a project that gets stuff done.
Trying to keep the kids on track with their chores is serious work. I mean, I can't keep track of everything we're supposed to do in a day, how can I expect the kids to remember all their chores? And I can't tell you how many times they couldn't remember if they had completed the chore or not... which means they sometimes do the same one twice for no good reason. I had to do something!
I bought some metallic cookie sheets (for $0.97 at Walmart)...
And bought some wooden discs at the craft store along with some magnets...
And then I got to work. I found some clip art for the kids chores and printed them out on adhesive paper:
Next, I cut them out, stuck them onto the wooden discs and glued a magnet to the back... so far, so good.
I painted the cookie sheets...
And then added a little vinyl! Their names are up at the top of the cookie sheet and the line near the bottom lets them know what they've done: if it's above the line, they've finished that chore!
As you can see, baby Lily doesn't have any chores yet. Mostly she just eats all day and that's not a chore. But I have extra magnets for when she gets old enough to help out!
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
