I thought of this idea to make my own magnetic chore chart for my kids Don't look too close because it's not perfect. The back of the round magnets leave a little residue/stain on the paper when you play around with them too much. I used a cookie sheet from the dollar store and "cuttin up" with "George" to make the words and boxes.
*Design out what you want on paper first
*Create one chart per child
*Cover the decorated paper with a clear transparency
*There is no good way I have found to adhere the ribbon on the sheet to support the weight of the chart so you can pop a small nail through the upper left and right corners to support it and use the ribbon (mine was duct taped to the back) just for decoration.
* Make sure you hang it in a spot where everyone will see it and the kids will return to often enough to move the magnets to "done" when they are finished.
