I have recently become addicted to Pinterest! I have seen fancier examples of this project. I had my 10 year old niece every other week during the summer. I also tutored a kid for 3 hours in the morning.
I created this schedule board to keep my niece busy. I was gone in the morning before she woke up, so I wrote in a chore and an activity for her to do on her own. When I came back for lunch, we did activities together. The first week we worked on a lot of paper crafts. The following week we worked on projects in the kitchen.
I used Microsoft Word to create the schedule template. I chose a 8″ x 10″ random frame I had laying around. I printed out the template on 8.5″ x 11″ paper from my scrap bin and trimmed it to size.
