I personally don’t think it’s ever too early for kids to start learning how to do chores. Anything as simple as feeding a pet or taking their dirty clothes to the laundry basket can be a huge help, am I right, moms? These are more than just chores they are learning; they’re life skills. The last thing I want to do is send my son out into the world someday without the basics of how to manage himself and where he chooses to live. A chore chart for a kids is a great little motivational tool to get them helping around the house all while getting a visual tracking of their progress. This Inside Out inspired chore chart for kids is just the thing to get your child motivated to complete their chores and earn their rewards if you offer them. If they loved the Inside Out movie, they will super excited about using this!
INSIDE OUT INSPIRED CHORE CHART
This chore chart for kids is completely customizable, so you can write in exactly what chores you want to see your child complete and then check them off each day. You may be new to chore-charting and wondering what sort of things you could get your child to do around the house. Here are a few suggestions:
Keep their bedroom tidy
Feed the pets
Make their bed
Load the dishwasher or was the dishes
Clear the table after meals
Be in charge of getting the newspaper and mail
Brushing their teeth/combing their hair/etc.
Doing their homework
Taking dirt clothes to the laundry basket
I’m sure you can probably even think of a few more to add to this list or even a few that may be unique to your own situation. I think we sort of underestimate what kids are able to do. I know I’ve been guilty of it before and mainly because it seems like things get done a whole lot faster if I just do them myself. I know this isn’t the way to teach by example, though, so I’m putting my own son on this chore chart starting this week to see how it goes for us.
