Chalkboard To-Do Chart

I don't know about your kids, but mine are a pain when it comes to getting things done.
"Did you brush your teeth?" I ask. "Why?!" they yell. "Why?! So your teeth don't fall out of your head! Do it!" I yell. This is our morning routine. It also happens when I ask them to take a shower. You would think it was the end of the world.
So I decided to make a to-do chart. I had some chalkboard paint and clipboards for a possible craft project, so I hijacked them for this instead.
No, I do not make them shower twice a day!
I have it twice so that they can pick when they want to do it, before bed or before school.
I did two coats of paint, following the package instructions.

I added vinyl that I cut from my Cricut.

I could have left it blank and written in the stuff with chalk, but I decided this was an easier idea.
I plan on hanging these by their bedroom so that they see it and can mark stuff off as they do it.
Wish me Luck!!
