Tuesday Tutorial: Chore Charts

I finally got the chore charts done! They are REALLY easy to make - you only need a few things: paper, Mod Podge, clip boards, hooks, eyelets (optional), and cards or cardstock for the chore cards.

Basically you Mod Podge the patterned paper to the clipboard and let it dry. Then you measure out where you want your hooks and make a small indentation with a nail (not all the way through). Screw in your hooks. Punch a hole in the chore card and put in an eyelet if you want added security. Glue on a picture of the chore and attach some cute stickers on the back for when you flip it over. That's it!

I decided to show you the finished project instead of taking pictures of each step since it's pretty basic. I attached a small scrap of ribbon to each for some extra prettiness. Super easy!

Big E's Chore Chart:
clean up toys, make bed, feed the dog, help do the dishes
extra cards courtesy of my 2010 Project Life album

I was out of laminating sheets so I used an eyelet to make the hole more secure.

I love ribbon!!

when she completes all of the chores she sees all princess stickers

Little E's Chore Chart:
take dishes to the sink, clean up cars, put books away, put clothes in the basket

this ribbon is all boy and matches perfectly with his paper

Little E was so excited to see his stickers...he'll want to do the chores
just so he can see all of the transportation stickers!

cute stuff!
What are you guys making today??

 I'm hanging in there in the top 25 mom blogs...can you please vote? You can vote once a day until May 2nd. Thanks! 


  1. This is a great idea for kids' chores! Love the eyelet as well!

  2. I have some extra Project Life journaling cards I may have to do this! :)

  3. Hi Amy! I bookmarked this post a while ago and I'm finally ready to sit down and make a couple of these for my kids. A couple questions: what kind of hooks did you use? Where can I purchase them? And how did you adhere them? Another fantastic idea of yours! I can't wait to make mine!

  4. Hi Leslie! I got the hooks from Home Depot. I had to open them with pliers (they were the O shape and I just pried them open). They screw into the clipboard. Have fun!
