I've been cleaning out my "school" area and found my kids' old chore cards! Most of these ended up lost or chewed up, but I found a precious few still in tact and thought I'd share them with you!
When Trusten was 4, Brahm was 2.5, and Samuel was 9 months, I became pregnant with Liberty and had awful morning sickness. Unlike my past pregnancies, it was just in the mornings, so I knew if I could get to noon, I'd be good to go!
So, in order to survive mornings, I came up with these picture chore cards to help my kiddos know what they were to do while mommy was laid out on the couch!
Trusten and Brahm each had their own envelopes for their morning responsibilities that I kept in the desk drawer. When they woke up, I'd fix them breakfast (that was about all I could manage!) and then they'd head to the desk drawer for their cards.
These cards gave them some direction for their mornings and because of their ages, my expectations were really low, it was just the fact that they were trying and learning a routine!
The last "chore" was quiet time with me in the living room. And we loved this SO much, we still do it! After all the morning tasks are checked off our chore board (for my new method, see HERE), we'd have quiet Bible time.
I'll write more about that in a future post!
Have a GREAT weekend, friends!
