Cindy from California
Made a magnetic whiteboard checklist:
“Our boards are up! Thank you! My kids love the magnets.
I bought these boards:
Board Dudes Metalix Magnetic Dry Erase Board 8.5 x 11 Inches (DDT37) (click here)
Then I bought these removable hanging strips so I could put them on our wall:
Command Picture Hanging Strips Value Pack, Medium, White, 12-Pairs (17204-12ES) (click here)
We added a bottom row for After School to-dos. My kids wrote their name and decorated as they chose. (My daughter is in Kindergarten, son in 3rd grade). ”
A Teacher from Washington
Made license plate name tags for her classroom
Jordan from Washington used the “Design a License Plate” activity to put each of her students’ names on a license plate to use as name tags in her classroom. What a great back to school idea!
Traci from Colorado
Made a visual VELCRO checklist for kids on the Autism Spectrum
“I know your product was not originally intended for special needs kids, but I just want to say how much I love having it at my fingertips for use with children that are on the Autism spectrum. I’ve made many visual schedules/checklists by slightly modifying your product from its original intended use.
I used the weekly chore chart option to print all the pictures I needed for [my daughter’s] daily schedule, but I wanted movable pieces. Once I printed, I cut the pictures apart to make individual pieces, laminated them, and attached them with velcro. Many of the pieces I used the custom feature to make them more specific.”

Heather from Washington
Made a magnetic checklist using a cookie sheet:
“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. ”
