Job Charts

These are job charts for my kids. I think they turned out great. I searched online forever to find something that would last and might motivate my kids to actually do work around the house. I got the idea from here. But I changed it around to fit our family better.
The quote above reads..."the privilege to work is a gift, the power to work is a blessing, the love of work is success.  I thought this was a perfect quote to go above job charts.  I wonder if my kids will ever love to do their jobs...probably not. But at least this part of the hall looks cute now.
We have a.m. and p.m. jobs, so I added a sun and moon to the graphics to help the kids tell them apart. The board along the top is to keep track of who completed their jobs for the week.

What a great idea. If you get a chance I would love you to link your job chart up to More the Merrier Monday. It lasts through Wednesday so you have plenty of time to stop by. See you there. http://diyhshp.blogspot.com/

Great idea! I love the magnet idea and especially the quote! Do you think it's too late to do this for teenaged boys?!!

super cute! I have been trying to figure out a good job chart system for our family too. Love these

Very cute! How did you make the individual chore squares? Did you draw the images yourself?

I need something like this! I've been printing out chore charts (and having to remake them) every week, but inevitably I fall behind.

This would also be good for incentive charts, too!

Wow! This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I love the look. I would love to "link" with your blog if that would be okay? Thank you again.

Celeste said...

Ok... LOVE your job charts... I've gotten the magnet boards and was wondering if you could share your magnet pictures! I've been trying to find some clip art online but they aren't as cute as yours and I love that you have the sun and moon.

If you get a minute my email is cnrnoelle@hotmail.com

Would love it if you could send me those images!

thanks,

celeste
