Chore Lists and Age Appropriate Chores for Kids

One of the best ways to teach kids responsibility is to assign chores. Chore lists and age appropriate chores for kids can be assigned by first having a family meeting and then scheduling the chores on a calendar.

For example, you can utilize a number of computer software programs to create a template for the kids. Choose colors and pictures for the template, print out several copies so that you can place them in their room, on the refrigerator, or on a peg-board in your home.

Assigning chores will depend on the ages of the kids. First make a list of chores and then decide which child will be better able to handle the chore. For example, making the bed; laundry; washing the dishes; setting the table; taking out the garbage; feeding the family pet; putting away toys; picking out clothes to wear the next day; or putting leaves into a compost pile (kids love this activity).

Once you have the chores listed, then you can add them to each child’s calendar page and post it in their rooms. Let’s assume the children will be assigned these chores for a month. To avoid the kids from becoming bored, you can alternate the chores (age appropriate) the following month. For the younger children, you may want to stick to picking up toys and putting them away, choosing clothes for school, etc.

As the children become older you can assign additional chores such as raking leaves, mowing the lawn, watering the garden, taking the family pet for a walk, vacuuming, cleaning out the garage, etc.

Kids love to help mom around the house. It makes them feel good about themselves in general, and helps them to learn how to be responsible in particular. It teaches them organizational skills which will serve them well as they begin school and later on in life as adults.

Not only is organization good for the children, but good for the family environment as well. It allows families to spend more quality time together and less time devoted to cleaning out the clutter.

Chore lists and age appropriate chores for kids are not only good for their self-esteem, but will offer them the opportunity to become financially responsible when they seek after-school jobs in the future.
