Do I think I need a chore chart?
One of my downfalls is that I am a perfectionist.
This can be a good thing, but it is often not so good. I have too many
Yeah, not good.
And, I know some of you are nodding your heads and know JUST what I'm talking about!
So, in an attempt to help ME teach my children to be consistent in their own simple responsibilities, I needed to make MYSELF chore charts for my kids!
After much googling, I came across a FREE chore chart template I really liked from Happy Scrap Girl.
And, since it's been forever since I've used a template, a tutorial on using templates from (one of my fav designers/tutorial writers!) Misty Cato HERE.
Here's what I came up with:
Credits: Papers and embellishments were used from a variety of free kits I've collected over the years. Most are no longer available. Hullabaloo by Julia Makotinsky, How She Shines by Ellie Lash, Dino Kid by Michelle Herron, Fun Paper Alpha by Debra Fisher.
I could have made an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet and printed on my printer. But, I created an 11x14 that I'm going to have 'professionally' printed (around $2.50/print for that size), so that the colors are nice and sharp. I will be getting some kind of magnet to use as completed/not completed markers.
My children are still very young, so you will notice the 'chores' are just basic, everyday tasks - make my bed, brush my teeth. However, they are there, because even simple can be difficult to complete some days!
As my husband and I feel these simple tasks are not 'chores,' but everyday responsibilities, our children will not be receiving any kind of allowance. However, rewards for completing their weekly responsibilities, promptly and respectfully will certainly be at our discretion! :-)
