"I Want to Earn Some Money, Mom" - Odd Jobs for Kids Board

Work For Hire - Odd Jobs Pockets
Hello!  This project came about because I wanted to make something attractive and interactive for my daughter, who was looking for a way to earn a little cash.... And I didn't want to have any nagging or whining from either of us.

CTMH Designed Decor Frame

By listing the potential tasks and combining them with the 'going rate' (at my house,) she can choose what extra chore she wants to perform in order to get a little extra money.  She is very excited by the prospect of being in control of her choices. It is a Win-Win situation because these tasks should get done, but are not high on my priority list right now.
