I started drawing to do lists for my kids, because they are not able to read yet.  My reasoning was that they would be able to recognize the task I drew on their list, and then perform it.  I found very early that my ability to draw had deteriorated to the point that the kids often had no idea what I had tried to draw.  I was not deterred however.  I continued to draw to do lists, and they have become more recognizable over time.  I have even started drawing them for myself.  Here is an example;

While I won’t be exhibiting in a gallery any time soon, I am enjoying drawing regularly for the first time in years.  Give it a try.  You might enjoy it, get your kids to do their chores, and become a better artist all at the same time.
