My kids last day of school is today!! We have not been having them do chores lately for a variety of reasons. Mostly because I get so sick of the fighting about doing them! But, now that summer is here I know there is NO way I can keep up with their messes. They are going to HAVE to help out around the house.
So, I saw this idea to use mini mailboxes for a chore system. I will find the link and post it for you when I post the completed project. I am waiting on the mailboxes I ordered to arrive. But, I am excited because I created these cute little postcards in Word. Each postcard has a chore on it and on the “stamp” is the value they will get paid for completing that chore. I will “mail” my kids their postcards each night after they are in bed, and when they complete their chores the next day they will “mail” them back to me. I will then “mail” them an envelope with their money in it.
I am excited because I think they will think this is very fun and hopefully it will keep them motivated to comply with my wishes Here are the postcards. I have like 70 of them, including a few blank ones. I am going to have them laminated, and then if there is a special job to be done I will use a wet erase marker to add it to one of the blank ones. For the address part I put different names, like #1 son (I have all boys), awesome kid, sweetheart, etc.
