Make It Monday: Chore Chart Glory

by - February 11, 2013

Apparently, all they needed was a little motivation.

All I needed was a little inspiration and some input from the eldest: "We need a reason to do it, Mom.  Don't give us allowance for doing chores, take it away for not doing them."  Brilliant!

Some barn board, mini masons, picture frames and nails, a little template creation...and voilà: chore charts that are functional and lovely to look at.

The Rules: Their allowance goes in their respective jar at the beginning of the week.  For each task incomplete a coin will be removed.  They get the contents of the jar at weeks end.  Easy peasy.

"Moooooommmmm!" Zander yells,  "I need the vacuum!!!!"
"No, I wanna vacuum!" and Liam's jumping on one leg, dry erase maker in his hand, counting his check marks to make sure he's a better worker than Zander.
"But Mommy," Noa adds, dejectedly, "I wanna vacuum!" 

And their arguing makes as much noise as a vacuum and it is sweet music to my ears.
