This is a pic of the first one I came up with. I thought it looked too cluttered so I re did it. 
I had a poster sized frame that wasn't being used. 
So, I took some scrapbook paper and attached it to the cardboard the frame had. This ensured I had it the right size. 
Next I went to word pad and typed up each activity and printed it out. 
Cut them down to size and pasted them to the scrapbook paper with a glue stick. 
Put the cardboard back in the frame and hung it on the wall. 
Now as we do each activity I take a few pics and we cross it off the board. 
I will post about each of the activities as they happen. 
Which we already have a handful we have done. So, I have some catch up to do.

If I want to make something like this, I have a hard time coming up with my own ideas after I've read someone else's list. So. . . I love the idea but didn't read your list. Looks great though
