FREE Printable Chore Charts for Kids
I also have a FREE Printable Blank Chore Chart you can use! You can fill in Age Appropriate Chores for you kids. I thought about making customized Chore Charts. Let me know if you’d rather have those but I thought that personally I prefer being able to customize things like this for my specific kids and the things that work best for our family!
You can put the Chore Charts in a Plastic Sleeve Protector and hang them on the Fridge, then use a Dry Erase Marker or Crayon (Like these here) to Check off Tasks each day. You can easily wipe these clean and start over at the beginning of each week!
FREE Printable Responsibility Charts for Kids
I also thought I would do a Daily Responsibilities Chart this is a fun way for Kids to keep up with what needs to be done every day. At our house this includes taking toys to their rooms, cleaning their rooms, brushing their teeth, making their bed, picking up dirty clothes etc.
The great thing about these forms is you can completely customize them with the Chores/Responsibilities that work for you and your family!
I would love for you to share what has worked for your family at different ages, just leave a comment below!
