Dry Erase Framed Chore Charts? Yes!

Want to add some pizzazz to the Life Skills you’re teaching your children?  How about a framed chore chart?  I’ve wanted to frame the Chore Charts for forever.  Did I?  No, never made it on the to-do list.

Why switch now?  The paper copies were getting torn, I’d never print out new ones, we’d forget to mark off the completed chores, and on-and-on.  

PLUS – my kids never got paid, which defeats the purpose of the Spend-Save-Give banks.

How to turn your thrift store frame into a great dry-erase chore chart:

1.  Purchase frames with glass (mine were gold).

2.  Spray paint (if you want to).  I used my favorite Rubbed Oil Bronze.  It is the best!
I’ve used it on many items in my house – frames being the most popular.

3.  Print out your chore chart-  Click here to see our version.

4.  Pop it into the frame.  DONE!

5.  Grab some of these great markers:
Love how the eraser is attached – from Amazon

6.  Get going!  Now everyone can see very quickly (no excuses) what they need to do everyday!

Thank you for any help and thank you for sharing your mommy smarts… :) Rachele
