This is a great project to make with your kids to motivate them to do their weekly chores and it helps you, the parent, stay organized!  We all know that positive reinforcement helps motivate so why not try this project! The Calendar stamp set from Stampin’Up! is very versatile and can be used for so much more than just calendars.

Chore Chart Piece Setup

  • First take white 8 ½”  x 11”cardstock and cut in half widthwise at 5 1/2”  so that it is 8 ½”  x 11” and stamp the Calendar stamp in a  dark color. (Fig 1) 

  • Next add 3 vertical lines to make a complete grid and label the days of the week. (Fig 2)

  • List chores on right hand column and assign a sticker for each chore. (Fig 3)

  • Take two different colored 8 ½” x 11”cardstock.  Cut darker of the two lengthwise so it is 6 ½” x 11”.  Cut the lighter peice lenghwise so it is 3 1/2” x 11”.  (Fig 4)

  • Take leftover white cardstock and cut 6” x 2” then taking alphabet stamps, stamp CHORES.   (Fig 5)
