Summer- School= Chores!

I decided since my kids are out of school I'm going to take advantage of their time and put them to work. Ha, Ha. But really I am. I created this darling Chore Chart with the fabulous kit from The Ettes & Co. It's   HERE so check their super fun digi designs out.
I'd follow them anywhere they go, they are that good as designers. I made the weekly chores that are permanent with the bathroom cleaning that changes weekly. Then I made a daily one to get my kids up and going. While I'm at the gym they have to get their daily requirements done and put the corresponding pictures on the list. Then I made an award that I will give out weekly and that child will get to pick the dinner and dessert of their choice. I also made some little shirts that I will post on their door to their room if I see clothes lying around and that will be a mark against them for that week.  
We will only be using it for the next two months but I think I might get them into a good habit of getting up and getting things done. Cross your fingers.

P.S. I have to tell you what my word verication for this comment is because it kind of grosses me out. Mine was: made me think of a kid barfing through a pacifier!!
