Need Inspiration for Your Summer Chore Charts?
[Editor's Note: I have been batting around the idea of creating another summer chore chart for our family this year. I say another because I did it last year and it failed... and it was all my fault. After I read this post by Melanie at Mel and Boys, I feel really inspired. Her explanations and photos have encouraged me to get on the ball! Do you have a summer chore chart for your family? -Jenna]
I decided to post the Summer Job Charts first, since "work comes before play"! That is a little idea that I am trying to teach my boys. Somedays, I feel like it is a constant phrase coming out of my mouth.
It helped a lot once I got our Summer job system up and going on our 'Family Command Center'. Ever since life has been much happier, with a much cleaner house (yeah!) and a less frazzled and nagging Momma. When the expectations are clear my boys do so much better. I figured out what I needed done everyday and divided it up between the boys. The three oldest rotate between certain jobs--with the description outlined below. My two little boys have age appropriate jobs each day too.
