I found this magnet board at a yard sale several years ago. You can read my tutorial here that I did for covering the back. Well, I took off the cloth cover and decided to use the plain canvas back. I used a menu print out pad that I purchased from Joann's Fabrics and added a To Do board and a Thoughts board.
If I don't make a to do list each day I typically do not get anything done. It is so discouraging to make out a nice long list and then lose it. Now I am able to stick it to this board and reference it during the day.
I love having a Thoughts board. Sometimes I think of things that I want to start doing like, teaching my little one numbers or shapes or keep my eye out for material for a certain project. I don't want to write that down on my to do list because they are more long term goals. However if I don't write them down somewhere I will forget. So I keep a piece of paper up there to jot things down and change it every month or so when I've either accomplished most of the things or they have become a habit.
The open space there in the middle is also fun to have and I usually stick different pictures of my little one there.
Enjoy and I hope this inspires you to get your menu and goals organized too!
