Most chore charts are kept in the kitchen, so despite the fact that my daughter’s is not, I thought I’d share hers this month while we’re discussing kitchen organization. My original inspiration came from U Create.
I loved how this chore chart was almost an art piece, and could be customized for different styles and different kids. She uses chipboard for the trim, and while my Pazzles can cut chipboard, I haven’t used that feature yet and knew it was going to take me a long time to figure out how. Besides that, I chose to go with a larger chart (mostly because when we bought the metal panel for it, my husband didn’t want to cut it!). I also had plans to divide the chart up into days of the week, but as you can see I didn’t even get to “to do” and “done”! We used bead board that was leftover from a home project, made magnets using an online tutorial (there are several out there – basically Mod Podge, magnet and done!), and I trimmed out the metal edge with scrapbook paper and ribbon. The letters are vinyl stickers that I cut with my Pazzles machine. I love how it turned out!
I am starting to make some different chore charts for other people, so when I have them completed I’ll share!
I have chosen my new blog design and am working with the designer on changing some minor details…can’t wait to have it up and running!!!
