chart of chores.

With growing comes responsibility.

Why this concept is so thrilling for small children, I don't know. What I wouldn't give to be a child and worry about nothing more than making my bed.

Maybe they're just excited about the super cute chore chart that their super cute mommy made them? Quite possibly.


It's actually really simple, and you could easily make your own!

I took a frame that I had and put felt behind the plexi-glass. You could use anything instead of felt: cotton fabric, pretty paper, etc. I just liked the solid color of the felt. Then, on the OUTSIDE of the plexi-glass, I added their names and suction cup hooks to hang the chore cards on.

(Tip: buy felt big enough so you don't have seams like I did.)

The chore cards have a hole reinforced with an eyelet. I happen to own a little eyelet gadget that I secretly love. One side of the card says the chore, the other 'done'.

I hung it at kid level in the kitchen so they're at liberty to twist those bad boys around when they're all done being chore-y. I have offered no other incentive, just the turning of the papers, and the girls are gung ho about cleaning.

We'll see how long that lasts, right? It's rad for now!
