Our Chore Chart

Remember how I showed you How We ROLL????
I finally finished our
"How we ROLL" chart.

I'm SOOOOOOOO excited for you to see it.

It didn't cost a cent to make.
Everything, once again, was found  in my garage.

Here's what I did:

I had an old scrub board.
Totally appropriate for a chore chart, don't ya think?? 
 Check out the swan stickers all over the back of it.
Yeah, you heard me, SWAN stickers. 


I used  some leftover Mosaic tiles from our Bathroom redo a LOOOONNNGGG time ago.

 I pulled off all the tiles I wanted to use.

I cut out enough tiny circles on my cricut in black vinyl to make my dice dots.


Then I took some large Popsicle sticks and  trimmed them to the size I wanted with a pair of scissors.
Snip, snip!

Then, I went on my computer and designed little labels to go onto the Popsicle sticks.

Printed them out and trimmed them up.

I used black paint and painted the Popsicle sticks.

 Then I glued my labels down and sanded the edges. 
Aren't they CUTE???!!!

 Next, I added a magnet to the back of EVERYTHING.
The boys like to switch things up.
This adds to the whole game feel.

 Next, I hopped back onto my computer and made little square pictures the same size as my tiles.
I cut them out and glued them to the top of the tiles.

Then I designed our title to go on top of the board.
I printed it out on card stock and used double stick tape to attach it to the board.
I didn't want anything to be permanent.
I might want to use this board again for something else :)

This is what it looks like all finished and in action:

The boys love it!!
Once again, makes life a little easier around here.
NEED that!
LOVE that!!

Have a Suite day :)
