Occasionally I hear from customers who have used
The Trip Clip® in new and creative ways. See their great ideas below, or
send me yours!
Pam from Ontario, CA
Pam used The Trip Clip's To Do / Done Board and
picture clips to create
a visual support for her Autistic son.
"Checklists are wonderful help for my son and they help teachers understand
what he's supposed to be doing"

Nancy in Spain
Nancy used The Trip Clip's Custom List to create
bilingual flash cards for Ukrainian refugee children.
"Over the last week or so, we have seen a growing number of Ukrainian families, mainly mothers with
children, arriving on the island, fleeing war. Some of the children are already starting school. I felt
a lot for the poor children, and the poor mothers, sending their children in a new school, with no friends,
and not knowing a word of the language. What if he/she needs to pee and can't ask? What if he/she is hungry?
What if the teacher is trying to ask her how she feels?"

Heather from Washington
Heather used The Trip Clip to create a
hook & loop chore chart for pet care.
"We have 5 people in the house, and we never knew who had done what. We were constantly asking people and
texting them to find out if anyone had already fed the dogs. Using the Trip Clip to coordinate my house
full of independent people makes communicating status on daily tasks much easier." -Heather
Meghann from Minnesota
Meghann used The Trip Clip® to created a
combined daily and weekly checklist for her kids.
"I love your lists. I print a daily list and put it on the left, then I print weekly chores and orient them to the right of the page. It’s a bit of cutting after printing, but gets everything on one page for the kiddos!
I might print one more thing for my oldest (10) to remind her of her monthly and quarterly intentions and goals. " –Meghann
Mrs H From Washington
A teacher from Washington used the
school schedule activity to make this checklist for her families to use at home this week since we are doing remote learning.
"I am making a check list to help them mark when they have completed an activity. We are required to show both what we have offered and who has connected." –Mrs H
Lindsey from Arizona
Lindsey used the
free cleaning checklists to organize her kids' chores
"We are ready for spring break/social distancing/getting-our-sh**t-together-so-momma-doesn’t-lose-her-mind!" — Lindsey
Heidi from Virginia
Heidi used the
school schedule activity to make a homework tracker:
"I have been a member for YEARS now…. started when my ADHD/Autistic/gifted boy was young, and now he’s old, and now using this with my ADHD/Autistic/Gifted girl to try to get her homework in order. [This] is a listing of my daughters ODD day and EVEN day schedules, with a space under each subject for her to write her homework in. Going to try this instead of the agenda the school gave her…. it may be less overwhelming."

Kelli from Idaho
Kelli made a
magnetic checklist using cookie sheets:
"My kids were really excited to see their to do charts! We are now ready for school to start!"
Cindy from California
Cindy made a magnetic whiteboard checklist and used it with
"Our boards are up! Thank you! My kids love the magnets.
I bought these boards:
Board Dudes Metalix Magnetic Dry Erase Board 8.5 x 11 Inches (DDT37)
Then I bought these removable hanging strips so I could put them on our wall:
Command Picture Hanging Strips Value Pack, Medium, White, 12-Pairs (17204-12ES)
We added a bottom row for After School to-dos. My kids wrote their name and decorated as they chose. (My daughter is in Kindergarten, son in 3rd grade). "

Traci from Colorado
Traci made a visual
hook and loop checklist for kids on the Autism Spectrum
"I know your product was not originally intended for special needs kids, but I just want to say how much I love having it at my fingertips for use with children that are on the Autism spectrum. I’ve made many visual schedules/checklists by slightly modifying your product from its original intended use.
I used the weekly chore chart option to print all the pictures I needed for [my daughter’s] daily schedule, but I wanted movable pieces. Once I printed, I cut the pictures apart to make individual pieces, laminated them, and attached them with velcro. Many of the pieces I used the custom feature to make them more specific."
Heather from Washington
Heather made a
magnetic checklist using a cookie sheet:
"I went to the local thriftshop and picked up a cookie sheet for $1.00 (I brought a magnet with me to make sure it was magnetic). You can buy yours here. Then, I spray-painted it a bright "you can’t ignore me" yellow and screwed it to the wall.
I am not exaggerating when I say that it worked like magic! Not only are my kids motivated to clear off their “To Do” column, but it is a great reminder for me about what they are supposed to have done. "
Robin from Texas
Robin made a picture grocery list
"We LOVE Trip Clip!! It gives my early reader reading practice in a practical “real world” way, and gives her a helpful role during grocery shopping. WARNING: with all the word practice, they may edit your list. Haha"
Nanveet from Ontario, CA
Nanveet made multiple checklists for her kids to use through the day.
"I finally finished the routine checklists that have been on my to do list a long time. Going to laminate and then ready to use!! I used templates from @thetripclip . The website is really easy to use. It has 2 different subscription levels. Go check them out!!!"
