Magnetic Chore Chart

Mommy's Lil Helper: Magnetic Chore Charts

If your child's room looks like a hurricane whipped through it, it may be time for you to enlist the help of your wee ones to get things done around the house. Chores can help take the burden off of mommy and teach the tots a thing or two about responsibility and pride.

Invest in a Melissa and Doug's Magnetic Responsibility Chart ($16) to help keep track of the youngster's accomplishments. Mounted on a dry-erase board, mom and dad can choose from over 130 magnets to reward their lil one's behavior on a day-to-day basis. Pretty soon, a bevy of angels will be whistling their way into seven star day territory while mommy kicks up her heels and relaxes. Well, maybe just a little.

I think this is too much and too organized. I don't really believe in chore lists etc. I like a more natural approach by just asking and letting children help alongside the parent now and then.

It's a really cute idea. I'm trying to figure out where we'd put it.
