Cricut Craft – Chore Chart

I am not good at chores. Or getting my kids to do chores…

But I think these charts will help remind us and make it kind of fun (at least at first…).

I’ve seen tons of chore chart ideas on Pinterest (like this one that inspired mine) and almost bought the makings for one, but I decided I needed to make my own to be able to update as we have more children and as they get older and have different chores.

And whaddayaknow, Cricut has a Chore Chart cartridge! It’s one of the Lite carts, so it’s a little less expensive, but it’s totally perfect! And I love how each chore is represented with a picture only so my pre-reader kids still know what their jobs are!

I got the white boards from Walmart ($3.97 each), the vinyl (by the foot) and the wooden pieces from Roberts, and I drew the dividing lines with a blue Sharpie. I probably spent under $20 for both and I have plenty of vinyl and wood pieces left over to make more.

Hopefully this will help us all live a little cleaner!

This is an awesome idea! I ‘m thinking of adapting it to use in the classroom for our writing process. I like that the kids can move the pieces as the chore is accomplished. Are they magnetic?

Great idea! Did you glue a magnet at the back of the wooden pieces? Is this a magnetic board? I went to Walmart but could not find it…

Yes, I glued magnets to the back of the wooden pieces and the magnet board is from WalMart. If you didn’t find it, maybe they were out. I think I’ve seen them recently…good luck!

What a great idea! I recently purchased a die cutting machine and I have been using it for everything from invitations to home decor! Lifestyle Crafts has some cool crafting ideas like this as well. Thanks for the post and keep up the crafting!
