Subway Art(? Kinda?) chore chart

My chore charts for my kids were getting "out dated" or rather getting my kids to stay positive and excited about doing chores wasn't happening. So I came up with this. And so far it's definitely exciting!

I took an old cookie sheet and sealed it with Mod Podge. Then I drilled a hole in the top enable me to hang it on my wall.

Then I again Mod Podged all over the bottom and chose some paper from my scrapbook stash...

Then I put an additional mod podge coat over all of it.

Then using my computer, word perfect word art and some Avery Ink Jet Magnet Sheets, I created different size magnet chores. Easy to change around as I want to teach them more skills... And keep a clean house.

Then I made some magnets with our names on them.

Used my Cricut to cut out chore letters...And wah lah! A beautiful chore chart...

And when I get really cranky I can take all the names off and only pay by completed (and approved) chores...
