Dollar store kids' craft: Door Hanger Chore Chart

What you need for this door hanger chore chart:

  • Foam door hanger
  • Contrasting construction paper
  • Letter stickers
  • Wooden clothespins
  • Glue
  • Permanent marker

Note: If you can’t find a door hanger craft kit at the dollar store, pick up a package of craft foam sheets and make your own door hanger by trimming a sheet into a long rectangle, and cutting a 2.5″ hole in the top.

To make:

1. Stick “chore chart” letters on a piece of construction paper. Trim to fit to door hanger, then glue.

2. Add letter stickers to one side of door hanger that say “to do” and to other side of door hanger that say “done.”

3. Using permanent marker, label wooden clothespins with chore names.
