Chore Charts for Kids

I made up these charts a few years ago when my kids were 4 and 5 years old. Now they are big kids and we still use them! Of course, I have modified the jobs over the years.  For example, when they were younger, "Do Dishes" meant sort the clean silverware and put it away. Now, they can load and unload the dishwasher on their own (Yay!).

Our charts are laminated and posted on the refrigerator. They have six chores each day:
  • Make your bed
  • Clear your plate after each meal
  • Pick up your toys
  • Put your clothes in the hamper at the end of the day
  • Complete the chore that is listed on the calendar (by looking at today's date)
  • Have fun!
We have a cat, so we have "Feed Cat" on ours. Two of the Chore Charts below are for kids with pets. The other two are not. You can click on each image for a larger view.
