In an effort to better organise my children's duties and activities, I created a weekly rota on a magnetic wall.
This way, the children can see what they still have left to do for the day and the whole week.
Everything they have already completed can be taken down from the wall. This visualises beautifully what still needs to be done.
The background is a standard magnetic board, here for instance 65 x 45 cm.
Note from the supermagnete team: The cards would also look great on a black magnetic board.
I made the cards by printing suitable 5 x 2.5 cm symbols on a thicker cardboard. I laminated the cards to keep them looking nice for longer.
I attached a self-adhesive disc magnet to the backside of the laminate cards. They adhere nicely to the magnetic board and can be easily stacked.

Addition from customer Nicole Peter (Switzerland):
I created the magnetic weekly planner and the small magnetic pictures for my son. Now, at the beginning of each week, we sit together and assign things that are important to him to the individual days of the week. For example, we can decide when he is supposed to do his weekly homework. Or, when he can enjoy his TV-time or when he is getting his pocket money. Of course, there’s always the possibility to cancel or reschedule something due to unforeseen events. As a result, my son is definitely learning to organise things and stay on top of them.
I used printable magnetic paper and a magnetic metal plate to make the magnetic weekly planner. I am very happy with the result. I have documented additional DIY projects on my Instagram account.
