There are lots of different thoughts out there about chores for kids — how many they should do, whether they should get paid for them, etc. My family struggles with these questions like most families, but one thing I know for sure is that chores are an incredibly important part of raising kids to be competent adults.

  • Chores teach skills that they will not learn in school, but are critical for them to learn before they're on their own. I don't want my kids to be the ones who go to college not knowing how to do laundry, or who get their own apartment but don't know how to cook a simple, healthy meal.
  • Chores teach responsibility. It's tempting to want to take care of our kids and not make them deal with the drudgery of life, but the drudgery of feeding ourselves, clothing ourselves, and even just doing work that isn't fun is a reality of life, and kids need to learn how to balance the fun with the work.
  • Chores give kids a sense of accomplishment. As much as my older son hates to cook, he loves how good he is at making an awesome, perfectly browned and melty grilled cheese sandwich.

You can use these age appropriate chore lists to create a chore chart that's just right for your kids.

Chores Bingo is a great way to mix things up and make chores more fun. Unlike daily assigned chores, this bingo board lets kids try — and learn! — different jobs. It works surprisingly well for spreading the work load and keeping it interesting.

For several weeks now, I've created a chore chart for my 4 year old and and 6 year old daughters. It includes making bed in the morning, picking up toys in the evening and staying in their bed when we put them to sleep at night. They are motivated to complete their chores and excited and proud when they do so. Great tool in our home!
Each week in 2018 I will post a free printable here that you can print and use as many times as you want with your own family.
