This is probably only exciting to me, since I've deliberated on design for years, and today finally decided to google "Washi tape chore chart," took a cursory glance at what popped up, and then did whatever I wanted to do.
1) Type a list of chores in Word. Size the font up to 18, format into two columns, and print. I made multiples of things like "put away laundry" and "get dressed."
2) Trim paper around words, and mod podge onto wooden clothes pins.
3) I used a template and Sharpies to trace CHORES onto my canvas, and then decorated with Washi tape. We all chose a ribbon design, and I sandwiched 12 inch lengths between the Washi tape I'd laid down and a new design.
4) Push upholstery tacks into the frame of the canvas to better secure the ribbon.
Easy peasy, and finished during Cocoa's nap.
I've been on a cleaning binge/purging streak lately- a least half the kids' toys have either been put away for later, donated, listed in Craigslist, thrown away, or simply confiscated. I cleared three garbage sacks of stuff from their bedroom floor the other day! The books, I returned and Ernie organized the shelves again. Clothes were bundled into the washing machine, and toys are in a bin in my room; they can each earn two toys back every morning if their room and playroom are clean when they go to bed. If they're not clean, everything I find out goes into my bin. I'm going crazy, there HAS to be some order in this house! Less stuff, so we can find what we want, and less stuff so we value what we have.
