Chore Board featuring "Liberty"

So it was my turn to post on the Bo Bunny Blog yesterday and we are blog hopping today.  I created a fun project.  Something that was inspired by a friend's status on Facebook last week.  She has two small boys and wanted a chore board to hang in her home that was functional AND cute. 

I found some free clipart online to use for the chore symbols since her smallest child can't read very well.  One boy has the red stars and the other has blue.  They have strong magnets on the back of each star so they stick well to the 12x12 metal sheet that I covered with the Liberty papers.  I found this for only $5.00 at Lowe's.  I've shared some close-up shots of this project here and on the Bo Bunny blog. 

Now that summer is pretty much here..... I MAY just have to make something similar for my kiddos. 
They would be sooooo excited! < --------- can you hear the sarcasm? LOL

****EDITED to add..... here's a link to the pdf I created with the little chore images if you end up wanting to create one of these yourself.  Hope that helps!♥





Thanks for stopping by! ♥
