This week Shannon has asked that, instead of publishing a new idea, we go back into our archives and re-print the best WFMW tip we've ever run. I'd have to say my Children's Chore List was by far the most well received. So, per Shannon's instructions, I'm linking it again this week. For those of you who missed it last week and would like me to email you the list, now is your chance. Just leave me your email in the comments section and I'll send it!
It's time to post another WFMW tip.
I'm not sure where I stumbled across this list, and I'm sure there are others out there, but I have this one taped up on our refrigerator. It helps to give me ideas on what tasks to encourage Snuggle Bug to learn. Granted, he's not quite 2 years old (not until December) but he's a smart little guy and he already does #1, 2, 3, 8, 10, & 13 (of the 2 & 3 Year Olds list) to the best of his ability.
I'm sorry this list is nearly impossible to read. If Blogger would let me upload my digital file (I had to use Photobucket instead) it'd actually be an enlarged clearer view when you clicked on it, but that's not happening at the moment. So if you'd like me to email this list to you in a Word document so that you can read it and print off a nice copy, just leave me a comment with your email address and I'd be happy to do so!
This works for me. Maybe it'll work for you too! I'd love to hear about some of the age appropriate chores that your children are doing!
If you'd like to share something that works for you, please leave me a comment. And be sure to link yourself over at Shannon's, the host of Works-For-Me Wednesday.

Looks like it's going to be one long email list, but I don't mind! I'll get this sent out later this afternoon, okay?
Oh, and for those of you who somehow managed to read the list as it is now, I'm very impressed. Maybe I need to get my eyes checked because, for the life of me, if I didn't already know what was on the list, I would have no idea what any of it says! :)
One last thing, those of you leaving me your email addresses, I promise I will not try to get rich quick by selling them to a mass marketing firm. :) I'll use them just to send out this list, well unless I already know you and email you in response to the comments you leave, then you'll probably hear from me again anyway.

Wow! I had no idea this list would be so requested. That's great! I think I've gotten it emailed out to everyone that's requested it thus far. If I've missed anyone or if anyone else still wants the list, just let me know!My past WFMW entries:
