Weekly Job Chart for Kids {The Happy Scraps}

 
 
Hi, I’m Amy, and I blog about all things crafty; home decor, paper crafts, card making, scrapbooking and sewing.  You can find me over at The Happy Scraps.  I’m excited to be here at Gluesticks today, sharing my Kids Chore Chart.
A while back I made some magnet board Job Charts for my boys, but I decided that I wanted to simplify them, so I got a different size magnet board, and came up with this one.  I love having it condensed down to one board.  It takes up less space, and it works about the same.  I used vinyl to put “chores” and my boys names on it, and then I used a little bit of black vinyl to put under where the day of the week is.
I change the day card everyday.  The two cards next to the day of the week (reading and homework) stay there all the time.  They are for everyone to do. 
For the chores next to the names, I rotate them every day. Each gets assigned a room and a smaller chore today, except for the 3 year old.  He get easier chores, that are more on his level.
I used my Cricut to cut out all of the chores, they are from the Chore Chart cartridge.
I hope you like my take on helping my kids get chores done.  I just want to tell Brandy, Thank you so much for having me.  I hope you’ll come by and see what else there is over at The Happy Scraps.

Thank you so much for stopping by, Amy! It was an honor to have you join us this week! –Brandy

  1. I love this idea. I and wonder if there is a way to do this for tweens and a 16 year old boy. I have tried so many different charts. They work for a week or so. Im running out of ideas. Today I used my iron to laminate a plain sheet glued to a piece of scrapbook paper. I wrote what chores they are expected to do everyday on the paper and they can use a dry erase maker to check off what they have done. But Im thinking the same thing is going to happen with this one. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know.
