For a couple of months now Little Miss has been dying to have chores and earn pocket money.
I’ve been promising to discuss it with Crafty Daddy and make decisions.
So I finally did (- one happy 6 year old here 😉
Of course, there had to be some crafty-ness involved…
I was inspired by Thirty Handmade Days to make chore sticks.
The kids coloured in the end of the sticks and I wrote the chores on the other end.
Then they have a jar each and as each chore is done each day they turn the stick over.
I also have a jar with sticks for each day of the week.
At the end of each day, I flip that day’s stick if they’ve done all their chores.
Then the sticks are ready for the next day.
The extra 4 jars are for the money – one each for “Save” and “Spend”.
They’ll also put aside a share for giving at church on Sunday morning.
