My contribution this year at Mamamade is going to be birth announcements and chore charts.

They are magnetic charts that can be
put on the fridge. There are "tiles' with different chores on them and the child gets to move the tile to the chart when they complete that task. Around our house, we call them chores. We do most of them first thing in the morning but there are things that we do as we go throughout our day. Abby loves to help with the Laundry especially. She waits for the buzzer to go off and she gets all the clothes out (and then she jumps in the while they're still warm - gotta make it fun, right?) After an adequate amount of jumping, we sort the clothes into piles, fold them ( well... I mostly do that but she does help with the sheets and she knows how to sort and fold the socks!), and then we put everything away. She's such a great helper! Sometimes we even get a stopwatch and play "beat the beeper" to see if we can finish before the timer goes off.

Some folks who have placed orders already have asked that the word "chore" be replaced with "responsibility" and that's the cool thing with thes
e - they can be personalized with whatever you would like! I also have had a request to break up the chart into evening and morning. Requests welcome! All I need is a high resolution photo. You pick your theme and then pick from a list of chores and that's it!

Ready made (non-personalized charts) are available at Mamamade for $10.00. I will also be taking orders for Personalized ones - The Mamamade price for personalized ones will be $15.00 and they will be ready by Christmas.

Soon I will get a sideshow up of all available themes. Here are some
samples of what I have done so far. (The list of tiles is at the bottom)
