We have an abundance of picture frames after 2 moves in 18 months. Rather than just keeping them in bins, I have been looking for creative ways to reuse them. Here are some of my favorites:
#1. Responsibility chart – Use this Responsibility Chart template and fill in with age-appropriate chores for each child. Frame it and hang in a central area. You can use a dry-erase marker to check things off and record earnings each week.
#3. Math practice – do the same as you did with handwriting for math practice.
#4. Serving tray – Larger picture frames make cool serving trays for parties. Frame paper that matches your party theme to add to the decoration!
#5. Jewelry Organizer – check out the Saturday Project on jewelry organization for ways to do this.
#6. Chalk or Magnet board – Paint the glass with chalkboard or magnetic paint (or both) to create a great new board for things like to-do or grocery lists, or for menus.
#7. Family Calendar – check out the post on creating a Family Calendar and print and frame your blank calendar then write on the glass with dry erase markers to keep you family organized
