Remember the Simple Reward Chart? Well, we finally put it to work at the Murray household. But--I need to put it up somewhere, I knew I wanted it in the playroom vs. bathroom since this was to be used for good behavior as well potty training.
I was inspired by Ana White's Clip Art Rails but wanted something a bit sturdier since my boys are climbing the walls these days. I definitely wanted clips over hooks for future use.
My supplies were quick, easy, and cheap. I went to Lowe's in search of a piece of scrap wood and stumbled across this piece of wood that did not require cutting and was priced under $2. The clips, which I now know are called Alligator clips, I bought at Office Depot for $.61 for all 3. Gorilla Glue and spray paint I already had on hand.
Again, I failed to take photos during the process, but this is super simple. I painted the wood. Dirtied it up with some watered down brown paint. Glued on clips (even though they're magnetic) with hot glue. Huh--just noticed that I did not even need Gorilla Glue. Whoops!
Here's the finished product. I used 3 clips even though I only ever intend to use two, but I think things look better in groups of 3. :)
I'm happy with the result. Let me know what you think....
