Along with our $0 month, we are starting our New Year's resolutions. Every year, we sit down as a family in the week leading up to New Years and discuss what we will work towards together. The kids decided they would like to try to save some money this year towards a few larger purchase, so in order for this to happen, we felt they need to be more consistent with their chores.
So we worked together to create a chore list for each of our two kids along with our family rules. In the past I have used the template that ModEcoKids created but that site seems to have disappeared. So I had to start from scratch. I downloaded two free Word background and created two chores lists that were tailored to each child. Please remember that my kids worked with me to create these lists. So don't yell at me because my daughter is emptying the dishwasher and my son isn't. She is older and wanted to do this :)
Here is my daughter's chores list:
I removed the binder three holes at the top of the sheet with my rotary cutter.
daughter here. It was very easy and cost nothing since I had the frame, fabric, duct tape and metal flashing on hand.
I love the fabric and had purchased it ages ago to make pillows for our family room. I obviously have not made the pillows yet, but I still have some left over so there might be one or two to come.
So this is where our chore charts will be kept for us to see on a daily basis. (sorry the pictures aren't great. It gets dark really early now :) )
What do you think..will this work?
