Chore Chart





After a series of difficult mornings we made some changes for our girls. One was dietary. We had been giving them high fiber breakfast bars, but they had more sugar than their normal breakfast. We switched back to mini wheats and whole grain toasts etc. Immediately we saw some positive changes. I also wanted to make them a chore chart so that they have complete responsibility for getting themselves ready in the mornings. I asked my husband to help me and he came up with this AWESOME idea of creating a chore chart with THEM on it! So we took photos of them doing all the things we want them to do each morning. Now, all I do is at eight o'clock say, "Please check your chart." We turn the TV off and they go look at their pictures and do it all by themselves. It has been fun and awesome! Let me know if you try this with your kids.

Very cool idea!

Maybe I should use one ... there are days when I'm out the door before I wake up all the way, and I find myself thinking ... "did I remember to brush my teeth?" :)

I have been planning on making one for my kids. I sat down to do it last week and was interrupted. I'll let you know when I get it finished! :)
