Today I get to be on Studio 5, a morning show in Utah, and I’m excited to show my fun spinning chore chart on the show today!
This project was a challenge from Studio 5 to make something fun out of 2 Lazy Susans from IKEA. IKEA is one of my fave stores on the planet. In fact, before IKEA was available in Utah, I would travel to California specifically to visit IKEA. I know, it may sound silly to you, but it’s the truth. So, when my sister in law Whitney asked me to be part of this challenge, of course I was excited.
Let’s get to it. The lazy susans from IKEA called SNUDDA are only $7.99 each. The challenge was to make something fun. Pretty vague challenge right? Well, that’s the fun part, I was free to let my creativity run wild.
As you can see I’m kind of a list lover.
Then I cut small vinyl images of each task on white vinyl to place on the spin wheels.
Then I placed the images onto the newly painted lazy susans.
Then I installed a small D-ring hook on the back and hang them on the wall.
I placed the chore keys in my favorite u-frames. If you have never heard of them, you should check them out. Basically you can change out whatever you want put in them. They are perfect for kids’ art projects, pictures, chalkboards, corkboards, dry erase boards….etc. An 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper fits perfectly!
I added two small vinyl arrows to the wall for chore selection purposes. Basically when the kids spin the chore spinner, whichever lands on the arrow, is the one they get to do!
I’ve never seen kids so excited to do chores in my whole life.
We will see how they feel about it in 2 weeks when it’s not as new, but it’s been great so far.
