How To Make A Chore Chart For Kids Using Velcro
Now that warmer days are upon us, the itch to do some spring cleaning is real which is why I came up with these velcro chore charts. I am always looking for ways to get my girls involved in cleaning. I know we’ve slacked off on having some regular chores so I decided to revamp our cleaning job system and came up with a super easy DIY velcro chore chart! I hung the charts to create a little chore command center for the girls.
These charts are really so simple to make and I love them because it’s easy for even a toddler to remove the chore tags and move them over to the “done” column.
These chore charts for kids are so customizable. You can draw pictures for a toddler or preschooler, or write the chores on the tags for an older child that can read. If you want to add a new chore, just make a new tag and stick some velcro on the back. You can even switch out chores depending on the season. This chore chart for kids will keep kids excited and happy about helping out around the house!
Materials Needed For How To Make A Chore Chart For Kids
Here’s what you will need:
- Self Adhesive Velcro
- Round Tags
- Clip Board
- Chalkboard Paint
- Permanent Marker
- Small Wooden Letters (optional)
Instructions For How To Make A Chore Chart For Kids
1. Paint a clipboard with chalkboard paint.
I picked up these cute chalkboard clip boards at Michaels. You could use any old clip board and paint it with chalk board paint or even just keep it plain. You will also need some circle tags, self adhesive velcro and wooden letters.
2. Use a permanent marker to draw your chores on the tags.
I drew pictures for my two preschoolers, but wrote out the chores for my first grader.
3. On the back of the tags, stick on one part of the velcro.
4. Attach the coordinating side of velcro to the chart.
5. You want to make some rows on both sides of the chart so that you can have a “to do” and “done” column.
I glued on an initial letter at the bottom for each girl. Draw on your “to do” and “done” with chalk.
I hung my charts with command hooks and they stay great!
They are at perfect eye level for each girl and now they are so excited about cleaning!
To make their chores even easier, I picked up some Palmolive® Multi Surface dish soap at Walmart.
Palmolive® Multi Surface eliminates 99.9% of bacteria (*staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica and E. coli ((157:H7)) from dishes and hard non porous kitchen surfaces. We mixed it with water and put it in a spray bottle. The girls can spray down the counters themselves and wipe down with sponges!
Then they can race over to their charts and move over the chore tags to the “done” column.
