Cutest Chores Ever!

I tend to revamp our chore charts every so often. The last couple of weeks I've realized I'm doing waaaay more work than I should be. I'm delicate. I need to conserve my energy for making desserts. With that in mind, I decided to make them stylish:


Each child has 2 clipboards (initials on the stars). One is for tracking everything for violin, the other is for the chores around here that I'm going to yell at them to do every day. I have a standard chore chart that I print each week and they mark off what is completed each day. The clipboards were $1 at Walmart. I looped a ribbon through the bracket and hung from a nail. I bought inexpensive (and thin) stars at the craft store and painted them. I hot glued them directly onto the nail head. Who knew that crazy cute could come so cheap. These clipboards turned out so dang cute, I just know my girls will work with a smile now. Right?

That is cute!

I was thinking I might just record my daily nag and play it in the morning while I go back to bed for 30 minutes.

I've found that the virtual chore chart works for me. I use a site called Handipoints chore charts to make printables and it's really been fun so far!
