Dry Erase To-Do List

I have been seeing picture frame dry erase boards all over blogland lately and I decided to expand on that idea and create a dry erase checklist! I started out with this document sized frame from dollar tree:


Then I just spray painted the frame red, printed out my son's to-do list (including pictures of each task since he can't read yet), and added a 1" border from scrapbook paper. Now he can see what he needs to do each day (without me having to remind him!), check things off as they are completed, and then just wipe it away and start over the next day!


As requested, I know have one you can print out for yourself! I will look into making it available as a document download but for now, you should be able to right click the photo below, save it and then print it.


Of course, this can be used for adults too. Just print out your daily, weekly, and/or monthly cleaning tasks, menu planning, etc. The best part is that as tasks change, all you have to do is print out a new page!

Awesome idea Megan!

I need to do that for our weekly menu.

Hi! Saw you over at tatertots & jello. I love this idea for kids' chores. Thanks!

Kasey Hunt said...

My kids would love this! Great idea.

Elizabeth said...

Great idea! I love how you can personalize it any way you want! I need this for our weekly menu - inevitably, that little sheet of paper I have written meals on gets lost, and then I have no clue what I am 'supposed' to be making for the week! :)

Amanda said...

Fantastic! I will totally be borrowing this idea for my little one!

Triana Ord said...

So cute! I'd love to do this for my little man! Where did you find the images? I've been looking everywhere for the perfect images to put on a list like this, with no success!

Nikki said...

This is such a GREAT project. My son would LOVE this.

Joy said...

I love it! Any chance you will share the printable list you made? Clip art and I, well, we arent the best of friends.

Sooo cute! I love the argyle background print, too. I am hosting a link party on my blog this weekend about words/quotes (The Weekend Word Search). Please consider stopping by! Your project would be a great addition.

(p.s. love the name of your blog!)

Great idea! I made a similar one this week too. I'm hosting We're Organized Wednesday this week through Saturday and would love for you to join the party. There's an awesome giveaway too. Hope to see you there.

Oh, that is so great! I have a very nice list for each of my kids inside our pantry and their rooms that they have to follow each day with chores and their morning schedule. This would probably even be more fun for them to "check" things off. Love to organize things, so this is a winner to me! Dropping by from "We're Organized" Wednesday.

I was just trying to figure out a good way to make myself a dry erase checklist. I even have frames sitting around that I'm not using. Awesome. Great idea!

Leanne said...
