Instructions

  • Step 1
    Step 1: Create a chore chart for each of your kids and print onto 11x14 legal-sized paper. I added everything! Their morning routine, chores, homework, band practice, baths, etc. This way the boys would be in charge of their own calendar and know what to expect each day.
  • Step 2
    Step 2: Optional: To make the chore charts a little bigger and look more professional, I pasted them onto larger background paper. I simply used 12x12 textured scrapbook paper. I also laminated each chore chart to make it more durable and last longer.
  • Step 3
    Step 3: Measure your fabric to the 12 x 18" Sheet Metal from The Home Depot {26 gauge}. Be sure to leave about 1" or so on each side.
  • Step 4
    Step 4: Mod Podge the fabric onto the sheet metal. I used the Mod Podge very generously.
  • Step 5
    Step 5: To hang on the wall, I used Gorilla Glue and glued Sawtooth Hangers stickers to the back of the sheet metal. Tip: If you don't use the Gorilla Glue, the hangers will fall off.
  • Step 6
    Step 6: Use Avery Printable Magnet Sheets to print off the prearranged rewards and punishments for each child.
  • Step 7
    Step 7: Add bubble stickers onto the printed affirmation stickers. I used these to mark each "chore" or responsibility that they had to do each day. They are small and fit into each square on the chart. Tip: If the magnets don't stick, they use gorilla glue to attach really tiny magnets to the back of each one.
  • Step 8
    Step 8: Make the punishment and reward magnets the same way as the affirmation magnets. But this time use larger magnets.
  • Step 9
    Step 9: How to make Kids Magnetic Reward & Punishment Magnet Chore Charts for your family command center.

    What program did you use to make the chore charts? Also, I wish there were closer up pics of the chore charts and the steps. I'm not sure what the bubble stickers are. If I could see everything it would be much easier to figure out. This is my fav command center so far!
