Keep your home organized, running smoothly and teach valuable life skills with these 20 free chore charts for kids.
About a year ago we set up a chore system and chart for our son. To my surprise, our son was actually excited about the chores. He was thrilled to be lending a helping hand. Having a chart was a visual reminder of what needed to be done, and a great way for him to show off his work to daddy when he got home. I’m sure he won’t always be so thrilled to do chores, but I know as a parent there are so many valuable lessons that come from helping around the house. Plus, mom can’t do it all and it’s important he knows that early in life too.
Now that he is a little bit older and has started preschool we need to re-evaluate his job list (maybe even add allowance, ekk.) I love all the wonderful suggestions and ideas that you will find below. I know that they will help us put together a new system that will work for our family.
If you aren’t up to re-creating a system, we used this Melissa and Doug magnetic chore chart years ago and loved it! Amazon.com has several chore charts that are colorful and easy to use.
