Works for Me - Chore Charts

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

We have tried all sorts of chore charts... Store bought, online, calendar, mom/dad dollars, etc. I was sick and tired of looking for a system, getting all excited, purchasing and than finding it won't work for us. And why not? Because I didn't need something complicated! I just needed the kids to be able to SEE what chores they needed to do and a way to keep them accountable to doing them. How hard is that?

Well, it's all very simple once I got into PowerPoint and made our own! YAY! Something simple. A checklist! I found clip-art that went with the chore, put a box next to it, hung them up inside sheet protectors where the kids can see them (they each have their own) and hung a dry erase marker next to them.

I want to SMACK myself in the forehead and say DOH! This Works for Us!
