Who doesn't love a freebie!? And organisation.. and getting kids to help out with the household chores!?
In an attempt to make chores fun for my kids I decided to label our laundry baskets. So I thought, why not come up with a cute illustrated sign that I could share with other Mums (or Dads for that matter), or even people with no offspring that just want to pretty up their laundry baskets? :)
Talking about Dads, the husband-guy who lives in this house could do with a bit of visual prompting to get his clothes into the right baskets... but I shall not elaborate on that here today...
Here are the signs, made with good old fashioned drawing and new fashioned photoshop (download links will be at the end of this post):
Go ahead and print your downloads out on whatever type of paper floats your boat. I used some heavyweight matte photo paper on a standard home printer. Cut those babies out, then decide how you are going to give them some longevity. I covered them- all crappily I might add- with some packing tape: Poor man's laminating! (Use what you have.) You may have a laminator. Or you may want to just blu-tack them to the walls or even pop them in cute frames. Again, whatever floats your boat.
I punched some holes in the edges and tied them to our laundry baskets with string.
Now it's the kids turn to do the next step. And the, ahem... husband.
(This is the first time I have offered a 'download' for a while. I'd be so appreciative if you could let me know if the links work!)
