This is our chore chart. It's not fancy, but it's effective and fits our family nicely. Everyone has chores, that they are not paid for. These chores are just what we do to pitch in and be a responsible member of the family. On the bottom there are extra chores that they can choose to do to earn cash.
Chores are decided by age and split evenly, some are daily, like dishes, while others are weekly, like taking up the trash can on pick up day.
Folding laundry, dinner dishes, sweeping up the floor, and tidying up the bathroom are just a few of the things the kids pitch in with here.
Chores can be adapted for children as young as 2, even toddlers can understand the concept of cleaning up their toys. Chores also give children a sense of ownership and pride in a job well done, and give children a sense of responsibility. A huge plus in implementing a chore system is that it helps us out! By not having to fold that load of towels and sweeping the kitchen floor, you've gained 30 minuets of quality time with the kiddos!
Are chores a normal part of your kids day in your home?
