If you’re looking for a great way to keep your kids on task, try a chore chart! I was able to put these together for around $30 each and it was SO easy. Here’s a list of everything I used + links:
- Printed Chart
- Poster Frame
- VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots
- Wooden Stars (or any kind of small item you’d like to use as a chart marker)
First I created the chart on my computer. I’ve included a digital download of the chart below – all you have to do is add your child’s name to the top! I had these charts printed at our local photo center.
I placed them both in inexpensive poster frames that I picked up at Walmart. I chose poster frames because they have plexiglass fronts, rather than glass.
I snagged some super cute wooden stars from amazon as well as these VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots. I stuck one side of the dots to the stars, and the other side to the poster frame.
Then I filled in the chart with a dry erase marker. The plexiglass on the frame makes it easy to change up their chore list as they grow.
My kids thrive off of having visuals so this has really helped to keep them in a good routine. VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots allow my boys to add or remove stars as needed and it’s a great way for them to see what’s done and what still needs to be done. They love adding the stars themselves when they complete a task.
This chore chart was a huge hit at our house! It’s really given my boys a sense of accomplishment and has helped them stay on task each day. I definitely recommend giving it a try – especially if you have younger kids.
