In an attempt to streamline our getting-ready-for-school routine, I made this this chart for Pia. When she finishes an item she slides the bead across to mark it as done. Of course with the flood of tears lately the chart has gotten a bit neglected, but for the first few days it worked well to keep us on track. The creation of this chart involved an old box (lid and bottom), scraps of wood dowels, some haphazard and shoddy drilling, scrapbook paper, printer labels, elmer’s glue and wooden beads. It was very much a choose your own adventure craft project.
Now I just need to think of what the final bead should represent. “Dry your tears”? “Pack Kleenex”? “Sob for 30 minutes”?
