Chore Clip Boards
My kids are great kids but they seem to always forget what Chores they have to do.I needed something that they could refer to daily to remind them. I didn't really want to do the chore chart. We've done that before I wanted something different. This is what I came up with. The clip boards I was able to customize to each of them and we can hang it on the wall fairly easily. Plus they get the satisfaction of moving one chore stick from the "to-do" pocket to the "Done" pocket
I took a standard clip board and painted it Black with some acrylic paint. I used the sewing machine to attach the pocket and then sewed down the middle to separate the To-do pocket from the Done pocket. Then with a Sharpie I wrote each chore on (all ready painted)Popsicle sticks from the $1 store. I used the Indie Art Cartridge for the designs and Base Camp for the Writing.I also used a standard clip board and painted it purple with acrylic paint. I used the Base Camp for the writing and used Gypsy Wanderings for the music notes. I used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the Popsicle sticks then tied ribbon through the.
