Do your chores!

All this summer fun is starting to wear on me!  Somedays I feel like I spend my whole day making sure all the kids in the house have fun.  Wiping up popsicle drips and washing swimsuits and making about a million sandwiches!

I got fed up last week after one more dripping swimsuit was left on the floor and I was picking up popsicle wrappers from all over the yard.  So I got to making some chore charts and our house has been so much happier this week.  I think the kids needed some work to appreciate their fun!

My Mom always said that kids need to learn step by step how to clean you can't just say "Go clean your room!" and expect anything to happen.  So growing up we had these VERY detailed step by step charts on how to clean just about every room in the house.  I can still vividly remember that the bathroom one was red because I HATED to clean the bathroom.  I made myself some this week and did it in google docs so everyone can enjoy them (Just don't print and sell them!).  I printed them on card stock and laminated them with my laminator that I bought from Amazon for $25.

The charts look like this and I made them for the kitchen, bedrooms, garage, living room and bathrooms.  Lots of detail so the kids know exactly what to do and what is expected of them.
