If your house is anything like mine, you are in a constant state of trying to stay ahead of the chaos.
I made each of my girls these little chore cards. Each kid got a different set, as they are certainly not all ready for the same things yet. I used luggage tags (the kind that self-laminate business cards) and an old folder I cut up to mount the printed lists on. Hole punch the top and tie together!
There are 5 cards in my school-aged children’s stack:
*Packing for overnights (trips to Granny’s)
It seems oversimplified to add “Wash Hands” to the After School card, and yet has made a big difference on whether or not they actually remember to do this before having a snack!
