Chore Chart

Long time no post, eh? I needed a little break here to catch my breath. To tell you how crazy things have been, I went 90 days without buying any stamping things. THAT is VERY serious!!!!

I was having trouble keeping up with what chores my kids had done and how much to pay them at the end of the week. So, my daughter and I made this chore chart. (Well, it was my idea but she did most of the work). The sticky notes show all the chores that needed to be done for the week. When a chore is complete, they move the sticky note next to their image (I have a DD and a DS). Then at the end of the week, I know who to pay and how much. To reset each week, just move the completed chores from the child's box back up to the top so they are ready to do again.

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Summer, Dylan, and Flirty Edward
Paper: GP 110, Certainly Celery
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Posterboard, sticky notes, Cricut George Cartridge, fine black marker

Hi Michelle, I LOVE this idea - it's so simple but so clever (sheer genius!!) - and makes it a fun process (which always helps when it comes to chores doesn't it?!!). Will be making one up for my DD - I just know she will LOVE it!!

Thanks for stopping by my Blog and for your lovely comments - they made my day!! :-)

I know I already left a comment back in September for this post, but thought I would leave another to say "Hi" and hope everything is OK with you and your family - bit unusual to not have any Blog updates. Hope all is well. Miss you :-(
