These chore blocks are made using hollow 3" wood blocks that have been painted, sanded, inked and modge podged with scrapbook paper. The blocks are sitting on a 2x4 that has also been painted, sanded, etc. I used my Cricut to cut the vinyl for the letters. I'm trying to think of a few inspiring words to put on the 2x4...something like "love at home" or "many hands make light work" to inspire cheerful cleaning. Any ideas?
I have 4 boys, but since my oldest is going off to college next week he doesn't have to be assigned chores at home any more...maybe I should make a block for him anyway and make interchangeable initials for it (A for Adam when he's home, G for guest that come to visit, and most importantly DH for dear husband!)...I need all the help I can get with my lame housekeeping abilities!
