A House of Order . . .Stop and Go Door Sign!

It's Officially Summer!
The kids are out of school and ready to play
at the crack of dawn!
Unfortunately . . . That's Not Exactly
What MOM Has Planned!
Chores Need to be Done, Scriptures Read,
Showers Need to be Taken, Piano Practiced,
and for SaNiTy Reasons . . .
We all need some kind of ROUTINE!
This little door hanger will let friends know
if it's
"Time for PLAY"
or
"Time for WORK."
Here It Is:
Stop and Go Door Charts PDF
Print the PDF.
Laminate the door hangers.
Punch a hole in the tops.
Tie a ribbon through the hole,
and Hang it from your door knob.
Fast, Easy, and Effective!

And the best part of all . . .
I don't have to feel bad anymore
when friends come over to play and my boys
aren't quite finished with their jobs.
Their friends can see the bright-colored signs
from the sidewalk so they don't even have to walk up the stairs!
It's actually been a great incentive for my boys to get
their jobs done early so they can hang the
"GO"
sign up before any of their friends even get the chance
to do a drive by!
It's a
WIN WIN
at my house!
