Magnetic Kids Chore Chart

Posted on Updated on

Chore Chart Header

I have looked and looked for the perfect chore chart. We tried the dry erase ones….but they always seemed to get erased and the girls got frustrated. Then Mommy got frustrated! So they went in the trash. Tried just printing them out. That wasn’t really working for us. So I decided I wanted something where we could change out chores as often as I wanted and would be easy. And cute of course! Here’s what I came up with.

Supplies needed:

Board ( I found this zebra board in the serving supplies at Hobby Lobby.

It has a cork backing and measures 15 1/2 by 12.)

Small piece of metal (I got a large piece and cut it to 9 x 12)

Vinyl

Contact Paper

E6000 Glue

Small Wood Circles

Paint

Magnets

3M Hangers

Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

The first thing you need to do is glue your metal to your board using E6000. Leave extra room at the top so you can put a name on the top. I left 3.25″. Then just center the board from side to side.

I then cut the names out using my cricut and their favorite color vinyl. I like to put the name on a solid background shadow when there is a busy background. So I used white for the shadows. The name measures 2.25″ x 6″ The font is called Segoe Script. I like this font for anything I want to look kiddish. Then using the contact paper center the name on top of the shadow and then the entire piece onto the board.

 Cut out the words To Do (measured 1.5″ x 3″), Done (measured 1.5″ x 3″) &  a line to divide. Then using contact paper, place the words.

Paint your wooden circles and glue on the magnets. I got the sticky magnets thinking I would just use those. Don’t bother! Go ahead and use a glue gun to glue on the magnets. They will fall off if you don’t I promise!

Now you’re ready to hang your chore charts and put your kiddos to work!

I used  the 3m Hangers that I got at Michaels.
