How to make Kids Magnetic Reward & Punishment Magnet Chore Charts for your family command center.

Create a chore chart for each of your kids that includes their morning routine, chores, homework, band practice, baths, etc. This way the boys would be in charge of their own calendar and know what to expect each day.

You Will Need...

  • Fabric
  • Mod Podge
  • magnets
  • Sawtooth Hangers
  • Gorilla Glue
  • Sheet Metal

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Create a chore chart for each of your kids and print onto 11×14 legal-sized paper. I added everything! Their morning routine, chores, homework, band practice, baths, etc. This way the boys would be in charge of their own calendar and know what to expect each day.

    I’ve uploaded my templates that you can print out to see what I did.  However, my boys require a lot more consistency and structure than most.  So don’t feel like you have to do what I did.  My family is just high maintenance. {bwaahaa!}

  • Step 2

    Optional: To make the chore charts a little bigger and look more professional, I pasted them onto larger background paper. I simply used 12×12 textured scrapbook paper.

    I also laminated each chore chart to make it more durable and last longer.

  • Step 3

    Measure your fabric to the 12 x 18″ Sheet Metal from The Home Depot {26 gauge}. Be sure to leave about 1″ or so on each side.

  • Step 4

    Mod Podge the fabric onto the sheet metal. I used the Mod Podge very generously.

  • Step 5

    To hang on the wall, I used Gorilla Glue and glued Sawtooth Hangers stickers to the back of the sheet metal.

    Tip: If you don’t use the Gorilla Glue, the hangers will fall off.

  • Step 6

    Use Avery Printable Magnet Sheets to print off the prearranged rewards and punishments for each child.

  • Step 7

    Add bubble stickers onto the printed affirmation stickers.

    I used these to mark each “chore” or responsibility that they had to do each day. They are small and fit into each square on the chart.

    Tip: If the magnets don’t stick, they use gorilla glue to attach really tiny magnets to the back of each one.

  • Step 8

    Make the punishment and reward magnets the same way as the affirmation magnets. But this time use larger magnets.

  • Step 9

    Now head on over to see how to make a Family Command Center Wall to organize all your daily activities in one special place.

    What program did you use to make the chore charts? Also, I wish there were closer up pics of the chore charts and the steps. I’m not sure what the bubble stickers are. If I could see everything it would be much easier to figure out. This is my fav command center so far!

      I used Microsoft Publisher to make the templates and then I send that over to a graphics designer to create the finished look. Otherwise I would have uploaded the completed files for you. {wink} Do a search on Etsy.com and I bet you can find someone who will make one for you too. I added the templates I used to create my schedule so you could print them out and see for yourself what I did. I also added another image that’s closer up for ya. Thanks for asking. I hope this helps.

      Momaboo ~ Oh good! You can get the bubble stickers from stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or even Walmart.
