A few days ago, I ranted on about how my kids can be a$$holes and that it was my fault. Part one of my mission was the Toy Jail, to try and teach the peas the concept of responsibility and to eliminate the stress of me constantly having to ask, beg and plead them to pick up there toys.
**UPDATE: So far, not a single toy has been sent to Toy Jail. They have been picking up their items promptly. I have seen some sabotage though! Hannah had purposely tried to leave one of her sibling’s toys out for them to go into toy jail! What a brat! I didn’t fall for that trick! Hopefully, they will continue to pick up their crud on their own.
For many months, I had been wanting to make the kids chore charts. FINALLY I finished them. I was going to do a long tutorial on them, but they didn’t quite turn out as nice as I would’ve liked, which is fine by me, but I don’t want to share a long tutorial on something that doesn’t look perfect! I will give a quick synopsis on how I made them, though.
I wanted them to be magnetic, so I bought three thin sheets of magnetic metal (not all metal is magnetized so be sure to check!) and mod podged scrapbook paper on top, I allowed the kids to pick what ever kind of paper they wanted. I then bought three cheap frames and placed the metal inside of it, sans the glass.
