Chore Charts


Getting kids to do chores is always a bit tricky. My 2 girls respond really well to reward programs so I made our family their very first chore charts. One for each cutie girl. They can check off the chores they have completed each day and at the end of the day if all chores were completed they get to pick a warm fuzzy to put in their jar. When their jars are full, then they get to pick a date with Mom or Dad anywhere they want to go. Well….anywhere within reason! Not to Disneyland, more like the movies, bowling or Chuck E. Cheese!


Fuzzies can go into the jar for chores that are all done, or for awesome obedient behavior. So, of course they can be taken out too. The have to remove a fuzzy if they are disobedient or naughty. This system works quite well for my little family. The girls love to get fuzzies and hate to lose them so it works great!



The jars are just Mason jars with the girls’ names cut out using my Cricut in pink vinyl, and a little ribbon tied at the mouth for a fun touch.


The Chore charts are made from foam board that I received at an Elmers Craft and Tell Night hosted by my friend, Jamielyn over at I Heart Naptime, one of my favorite blogs!



It was such a fun night and each of us walked away with a gift bag full of goodies. The board was a bi-fold board so I just cut it in half with an exacto knife.


Then I painted the front of the boards with magnetic paint, and then chalkboard paint ( Love that stuff!)


After the paint was all dry, I used paint markers (also from my Elmer’s craft night) to draw the lines to hold the days of the week, the chores needing to be done and the check marks. If you don’t have paint markers, you could totally use acrylic paint, or a metallic sharpie.


I used my love bug Cricut to cut out vinyl days of the week, and the girls names.


On my Computer I printed out the chores I wanted the girls to do each day. After printing them and cutting each one out, I ran them through my laminator and backed each one with a magnet so it would stick right to the board and be interchangeable!

Pin It



I wanted to be able to change the chores in the future, so magnets made that possible.


A little ribbon glued to the back for hanging and I absolutely love how they turned out and how functional they are for my family.



It was super easy, just a bit of measuring. Now the girls can use chalk to check off the chores they complete each day!
