4. Glue a magnet to the back of several colorful pom-poms. You’ll want enough pom-poms for each child to mark their after-school tasks as completed on the magnetic board.

5. Use colorful tape (ours is from the Smarts and Crafts Bright Bundle craft kit!) to create a column for each child on the magnetic board. We also used tape to create a colorful border for our magnetic board. Line up the tasks in the order you typically do them after school. You can easily switch up their order or add new ones thanks to the magnets on the back! Once a child completes a task they can move a pom-pom next to it.
