DIY Magnetic Chore Charts

DIY Magnetic Chore Chart

It’s summer time and let’s face it, Summer can get hard with kids falling out of their routines and habits they created during the school year. This DIY Magnetic Chore Chart is super easy and really effective for kids!

Screen shot 2013-06-29 at 7.05.17 PMFirst, you’ll need your Silhouette Shapes. The cool thing is that with the Designer software, you can purchase shapes and alter them to be exactly what you need. The possibilities are really endless with the Designer Edition software. If you don’t have it already, you need to get it asap! You can purchase it here.

We used these two chore chart shapes:ย Shape 1, Shape 2. There are a few more but these are the ones we chose that suited the needs of our children’s age/skill levels when it comes to chores and responsibilities.

Next, you’ll design you “chore” images to your linking. We loved the look of the colored background with a white “chore” image.

For this part, don’t forget to have your circle background image set to “Cut” and your shapes (toothbrush, toilet, etc.) set to “no cut”. We also changed the line color to white so there wasn’t red outline. ย PS. The new crosshairs feature on the Designer Software is awesome for making sure everything is totally lined up and even. Sometimes “eyeballing” it doesn’t work so well with digital design. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you’re unfamiliar with the software, check out this video to see what I mean.

Next, you’ll print and cut your designs. Make sure you have your “print registration marks” checked and print out your images.

Then, using regular cardstock, you will print out your design. Once printed, you will feed your cardstock (on your mat) back into your Silhouette and it will scan for the registration marks and cut your design.

Then, repeat the cut with the magenetic paper. One side is coated with adhesive so once it is cut, you will simply peel off the backing and adher the cardstock to the magetic paper.

Finally, attach it to your refrigerator!
