Chore charts pretty much come from heaven.
Kids respond. Kids clean. We smile.
I know, totally cheesy but if I clean up one more Matchbox car, renegade Lego piece, old McDonald’s toy or Cars 2 miniature drifter I’m going to lose it!
As I fill the bins in my equally heavenly Crap Hider (pictured below), I’m stepping over plastic hamburgers from my son’s mini BBQ set that he uses as a race car garage instead of a play grill. My neurosis has a hard time with that little setup. Bottom line: THIS. IS. NOT. MY. RESPONSIBILITY.
I’ve heard there are people who can just leave the house a mess until the person who created the mess finally cleans it up. I don’t know how that happens but I’m going to give it a try. I could be in a straightjacket by the end of this project but here I go giving it my all.
By the way I talk about my organization obsession, I make it sound like my house is always in order. It’s not. Don’t just drop by without warning, I need to do the infamous Quick Cleanup I wrote about.
It’s time for a chart.
This is my favorite chore chart because it makes sense, you can create it to be as colorful and cute as your talent will allow.

Together we can. Either that, or we’ll drink. Heavily.
Again…I love when you have printables. It makes doing things less daunting and to be honest, I have a weird love for paper.
I think there should be a reward chart for parents…hmm..
Oooooh. Now you’re on to something. That’s a GREAT idea. Hmm…a pack of gold stars.
