I’ve been trying to find ways to make my life simpler as a mom! With 6 kids, and more than half of them in school, I have to make things run smoother during the evening. Believe me, I am always open to new ideas, and have tried as many as I could. Unfortunately, nothing has worked long term.
I’ve seen these clock ideas on Pinterest, and decided maybe it’ll work for our family. We shall see!
Less than $6 for clock and frame at Walmart:
$3.88 8″ Wall Clock
$1.93 8×10 frame
You could easily find a $1.00 picture frame at Dollar Tree, if you want to save $0.93.
What you need for this super simple project:
- Small Wall Clock
- 8×10 Picture Frame
- Coloring Utensils (I used crayons)
- List of 4-6 ideas for the routine (I typed and printed mine out, but you can write yours in if you prefer)
- small screwdriver (to take off the case)
I used these ideas for my project, and feel free to use them for yourself:
- Play With Friends
- T.V./Game Time
This project took me roughly 20 minutes to make, and not only does it look nice, but it was easy! Fingers crossed that this works for my family. I’m a pretty free-flowing mom, so schedules and routines aren’t necessarily my forte. But I know personally that schedules help with my anxiety disorder…which equals to be being a better mom!
