I hate it when I feel like the mom who's always nagging at my kids to do things they don't want to do. It puts everyone in a grumpy mood and sets a bad tone for the day. Then I found this idea for homemade Chore Charts on Pinterest and decided to create my own. Here's what I came up with:
I made these Chore Charts in Excel. I found the images (most of them clip art) online. And I had them laminated so that the girls could use a dry erase pen to check off the chores when completed. We hang them on our refrigerator so that we see them all the time.

Tim thought it was a bit ambitious to go from no formal chores to 3 chore charts a day. In hindsight, he may have been right, but after a month of chore charting, I can tell that the girls are getting better every day. Good luck!
