How to make the printable chore chart reusable:

An easy way to save some paper is to turn this printable into a reusable chore chart. You can purchase dry erase pockets and place the paper inside. If the chores remain the same each week, you can hand write on the chore chart and use the dry erase pocket for your kids to check off each task.

If the chores change each week, you can place the blank chore chart inside the dry erase pocket and write the tasks directly on the dry erase surface. This product from Amazon comes with 12 reusable dry erase pockets and 12 pens as well; in a variety of fun colors.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
