We are setting things in place to have an economy in our home, so I just created this chore ring for earning money. Yesterday we made the money buckets so they know what to do with the money they earn. Today was about creating a system so they know how they can earn money. I found a similar idea at http://www.aprettylifeinthesuburbs.com/2012/02/kids-choice-chore-system.html. It was great, but I always like to try my own version. I wanted something compact that I could hide away when I wanted. I found these “Woodsies” (thin wood of different shapes) in the wood section at Michael’s. I traced around them onto different color paper. Then, I had the girls paint one side of the Woodsies in different colors.
