The Chore Chart
Making a chore chart for my five year old daughter Sidney was probably the best idea I have ever had! Since making her chore chart a few months ago she has been more than willing to clean up her toys, get ready for bed on time and just generally help out more around the house. I wrote about it back in November and you can read about her first chore chart here.
Here is a list of things I've put on her chore chart:
Backpack - put lunch bag and backpack away after school.
Shoes/Coat - put shoes and coat away
Table - Help set and clear the table
Meals - Help prepare meals
Yard work - raking, gardening, shovelling snow.
Water Plants - pretty obvious.
Laundry - help sort laundry, load washer, dryer, put laundry away.
Homework - She's in Kindergarten but she loves working in activity books after school from the dollar store.
Pets - feed pets
Toys - clean up toys
Bedtime - Bedtime was becoming a real issue for us! She never wanted to go to bed and would give me a hard time about brushing her teeth. Now that I've added bedtime on her chore list it's been a lot easier.
Free Printables:I recently made this cute chore chart for Sidney which now hangs on the fridge. Feel free to grab one if you'd like.
