I have seen cards like these in the homes of some friends who are awesome Moms. I have always loved the idea and I feel like Aiden (9) is finally old enough and has had enough cleaning teaching from me, that these cards can be used. They are posted in discreet areas in each room. The bonus is that now everyone in the family also knows what is expected when I say to clean a certain room.
I decided to make a set that I could offer to readers that you can edit to fit your families needs. They can be downloaded here.
You can edit them with the latest version of Adobe Reader. Right now the cards have my families directions in them, and I am a little bit crazy when it comes to cleanliness, so I figure if I can fit all my directions in, most everyone else should be able to as well.
