Step 2.

Take a piece of card stock paper and trace your 5 x 7 inch Adhesive Magnetic Sheet.

Step 3.

Cut out a “wavy” rectangle slightly larger than than your 5 x 7 inch rectangle that you traced in Step 2. Next, draw out your chart. The days will be written at the top of each column and the chores will be written in each row. Our chart shown here contains only 5 columns for Monday – Friday.

Step 4.

Decorate your chart and allow it to dry. We used Glitter Paint for the days of the week, Water Based Paint for the background and a pen to write the details. Tip: make as many chores and activities that are appropriate for your child’s age.

Step 5.

Make your under the sea magnetic creatures which will help to track your progress! For detailed instructions on making these magnets, click here.

Step 6.

To complete your project, glue a fun sea creature to the corner of the chart. We made an octopus by cutting a purple Fuzzy Stick into (8) 1/2 inch pieces and then gluing it to a Shimmer Pom with Wiggly Eyes. You can now hang your chart on the fridge and track your child’s daily progress with fun characters!
