my Responsibilites

My two older kids (aged 7 & 5) have been begging to earn dollar bills for months...maybe even years now. With summer in full swing and the begging not coming to an end any time soon, we came up with a deal. I searched and searched on Pinterest but couldn't find anything that fit exactly what we needed. So I took ideas from my favorite finds and created this blended responsibility chart. 

(Below is my left-handed-Hello Kitty tattooed-5 year old.)

My kids LOVE to color, so I made it b&w so that they could customize it to fit their style. We came up with a list of daily and weekly tasks together. After they colored their charts, we laminated it to get multiple uses out of it. After each task is completed, they get to check it off the list. At the end of each week, their allowance is determined on how many check marks they received.

After friends wanting copies, I decided to offer it here as well. To get your free printable click here or go to tab at the top of the blog labeled "free printable". Then right click and save!

Chalkboard Paint Mugs

The evenings here are dropping down to 30 degrees outside. The plus side to this chill factor is snuggling up to a warm fire with this pinterest find in our hands. I saw these a while back and knew it was something I wanted to have in my kitchen cupboard. The mugs were a steal of a deal, just a $1 a piece;) So with a few sprays of chalkboard paint they were all done.

I'm excited to get some use out of these.
