Cookie Sheet Magnetic Checklist

Occasionally I hear from customers who have used The Trip Clip® in new and creative ways. Heather from WA painted a cookie sheet and used it for her kids’ magnetic checklists. I like how the extra magnets that aren’t needed every day can live around the edges.

Customer Spotlight: Heather from WA painted a cookie sheet and used it for her kids’ magnetic checklists. I like how the extra magnets that aren’t needed every day can live around the edges.

From Heather:

“I went to the local thriftshop and picked up a cookie sheet for $1.00 (I brought a magnet with me to make sure it was magnetic). You can buy yours here. Then, I spray-painted it a bright “you can’t ignore me” yellow and screwed it to the wall.

I am not exaggerating when I say that it worked like magic! Not only are my kids motivated to clear off their “To Do” column, but it is a great reminder for me about what they are supposed to have done. ”

“We LOVE Trip Clip!! It gives my early reader reading practice in a practical “real world” way, and gives her a helpful role during grocery shopping. WARNING: with all the word practice, they may edit your list. Haha” — Robin

Teach a Kid To Clean Any Room – Just 8 Steps!

Kids hate to clean. Telling my kids that we need to do some cleaning is sure to result in immediate arguments and excuses and attempts to get out of it. And I can’t really blame them.  I hate cleaning too.

I have learned, though, that at least SOME of the hatred of cleaning comes from feeling like the chore is overwhelming and never ending. And after stopping to talk to my kids about why this is, it turns out that they don’t have a good idea of what I mean when I tell them we need to clean. To them, it just seems like an unlimited number of chores that they can’t predict and it just goes on and on with no end in sight.

Enter the Cleaning Checklists!

Print these cleaning checklists to teach your kid how to clean any room in the house. You can also edit them to make them just right for your family!

I created these lists to help my kids know exactly what I mean when I ask them to clean a room. They still don’t really want to do the chores, but the grumbling lessens when they can at least see there is a beginning and an end to the jobs expected of them.

To makes these easy to use, I’ve made them available in a number of different ways.
