Everyone knows that boy’s are not the most neatest people in the world— so with me having 3 plus my husband– it’s a must that my boy’s help out around the house.
Here’s how I keep them in order– I made this simple little chore chart using Word ( old school– no need to pull out the high tech programs) :)
This is for my 6 year old– simple and to the point. Their charts are attached to a clip board and hung next to their landing station. Each day they go through each task and check off once completed. After I do my mama inspection– I then add their beans to their reward jars ( 6 beans for each chore completed)
So how do you do it? Do your little ones have chores– if so– how do you keep track of it?
Well this is my first week of my 21 day organization/create challenge and I can say that it’s been a lot harder to stay discipline than what I thought. Having 4 kids, a husband, a household and still work part-time ( even if it is the family business) is extreme but hey I love it. So here is a recap of my week’s projects, sorry there will not be a Saturday, Sunday and Monday post, The family is getting ready to head out on a mini vacation!
Family Chore Chart
Boy's Reward Jars
Old dry erase calendar, clothespins and letter scrapbooking stickers--total cost= $0.00
Friday: Laundry labels
Materials: laminated sheets & labels that I made
Stackable laundry baskets from Wal-Mart: 6.00– super easy for the family to pick up and put away clothes and then bring back dirty clothes!
1 Week down— 2 more to go!
Next week I promise better pictures– all of these pics make my house look dark and my projects look dull.
What did you guys do this week? Any projects?
Day 1: Household chore board
Material: Cardstock, magnets, paint, modpodge, letter stickers and magnetic board
Ok here you go— it’s simple but functional for us. I love color coding everything so each family member has it color and it will be carried out throughout all other projects. And Yes, I know the photos suck but I’m a mama not a photographer :)
Dang it– I it’s bothering me that that T is crooked!!! I have OCD so bad :)
Let’s mark this off the list–che- check!
