After browsing Pinterest, I came up with a color-coded magnetic chore chart.
Each kid has chores for morning (before school/church/leaving the house), afternoon, and evening (before bed). This is great for helping the little ones keep track of what needs to be done when.
I color-coded the pieces so they don't get mixed up. I also made a few black chore pieces for the chores that get rotated (feeding the bunny, sweep the dining room, etc.).
Once a chore is done, the piece is moved from the "To Do" board to the "Done" board.
I found the white framed magnetic chalkboards at Target for about $10 (they were about $20 at another local Target). I don't see them on their website.
I made the chore pieces with the following supplies that I ordered from Amazon.com:
Using hot glue, I attached one magnet to each wooden circle. At this point, I spray painted them. I recommend painting after adding the magnets so they don't stick to the surface you are spray painting on.
When the paint was dry, I added the labels I had printed using the web-based template on Avery's website. I went ahead and created an account so I can reprint any time I need to. The labels didn't stick to April's sparkly glitter pieces, so I added two layers of Mod Podge.
After I had made all the pieces, I recruited my super talented husband to do the lettering.
Since implementing this chore chart, all I need to say is "Check the chart." And at a quick glance, I can see who hasn't done what. This has definitely streamlined those stressful parts of the day.
