Hi! Welcome to The Hybrid Corner. I’m Ami and I’m going to be walking you through a quick and easy chore chart. Thanks to Mom’s Little Helper by Amy Stoffel creating my daughter’s chore chart really wasn’t a chore at all.
My first step was to design the chart. Being that there is already a chart in the kit, I didn’t have to worry about lines or squares. My daughter is only 4 so I chose a couple of elements to be visual aids and to add a little flair to the daily grind of chores. To minimize cutting, I placed all elements for the chart in my computer program; I also felt that it would provide more durability to have a flat chart. Once I was satisfied with my design, I sent it to the printer and gathered the rest of my supplies.
Pictured above: chore chart, check marks, matte mod podge, a repurposed magnet and scissors. For me, I enjoy hybrid creations because you can make it as specialized or as basic as you need- my scissors are everyday paper scissors and I used them because they feel good in my hand- my magnet was repurposed cause that’s what I had on the fridge. You don’t need mod podge- a general purpose white glue would also do.
First I cut the check marks out. Then because the magnet was repurposed, I pulled of the current advertising to better adhere the check mark. Take the magnet, apply mod podge, stick down the check marks and apply another coat of mod podge. You can add multiple coats if you wish, further protecting the check marks.
Care does need to be taken when handling the wet mod podge as a misplaced finger can cause damage.
This project was completed in maybe one hour (including dry time). With a few simple digital items and a few household items, you too can create this quick chore chart.
Now lets get excited about our chores!
