Easy DIY Chalkboard Chore Chart

I don’t know about you, but I survive my busy life by implementing LISTS — I’ve got lists for everything! (I believe I inherited this trait from my mother ;-)) Maybe it’s because, in a way, I’m emptying my mental list onto paper, chalkboard, computer, etc. Then I can breathe a little easier, since relying solely on my memory these days is NOT the way to go…. Plus, the kids function a lot better with lists also – they know what they are supposed to be doing without me repeating myself over and over.

For the summer, I wanted to make a list of things to do daily – things that we don’t always have time for every day of the school year. I came up with this simple idea that has helped us reach our daily goal: a homemade chalkboard with a washi tape border, and clothespins that we move from one side to the other when we’ve completed something from the list. This has worked so well, and we’ll be using this through the school year with a new list of chores! It’s nice to be able to visualize your accomplishments, and it provides a lot of motivation!

Washi Tape Pencil Holder for School

Washi Tape Pencil Holder

It’s almost time to start the new school year (already?!), and as a homeschooling mom, I’m doing what it takes to get my kids excited about it!

One thing that my kids love to do is make something all on their own that is useful. My kids are practical that way :-)….and who doesn’t get excited about accomplishing something?!

So this morning, when my daughter said she wanted to have a pencil holder for her desk, I suggested she find a way to make it out of something we already had in the house. The only thing we had was an empty 16-ounce water bottle, and she was sure she couldn’t wait another day to get something with more of a smooth surface :-P, so the water bottle it was!
