Something to help my children with their chores

Since I have started working I am finding it hard to keep up with the house work like most working mums so I decided to make up some reminders around the house to encourage my children.
 (ages 8, 5 1/2, 3 1/2) with a few little chores around the house.

Made two of these for both of the bathrooms. To encourage clothes in the basket and not next to the basket on the floor.

This one is my favourite.  These are the colours of my bathroom,  each child has there own colour and have done since birth.  This way they (and I) know you has what towel and who hasn't hung it up.

 This one is for my son's (31/2) room to remind him to put his toys in the toy box.

This one is for the girls room or the lounge room because most often thats where most of the toys are. lol
I still have a couple more to do.  Hopefully the older two will get a kick out of it and find it funny enough to actually do their chores  and also might take my nagging down to a minimum.  lol

They are all A5 size and laminated.  Words printed of the computer and most of the pictures are Everyday Paper Dolls.

This is a great idea!! I have two kids that could use signs like these...I love how you said that the clothes go in the basket not next to it on the floor....I think this is a common problem for many of us...I know at my house it is!!
