Who is this chore chart for?
This chore chart is going to work best for younger children that are not yet reading. The colorful background and images work perfectly for toddlers on up.
How to use this chore chart for kids PRINTABLE
The creativity is all up to you when it comes to this Daily Routine Chart. For us, personally, I printed the icons (such as make bed and eat breakfast) directly to the chore chart. I then laminated the entire chore chart and placed it on the fridge.
To mark off when an item was done, I laminated, cut the “done” icons and added velcro to both the chart and “done” icon. This allowed us to reuse the chore chart over and over again without damaging it.
And coincidentally the favorite part of all of it was being able to mark each responsibility as done! Young children really do love to be independent … sometimes!
We decided to simplify this chore chart even further for the kids. Instead of the “done” cutouts, we use an ordinary dry erase marker to place checkmarks under the chores that are complete.
Then when the day is over, we erase and the board is ready for the next day. Easy peasy!
What age to start a chore chart?
You might be wondering if starting a chore chart as a toddler is too young, but I have found that it’s a great age. We personally started around age 3 and for us, this was perfect.
At that age, we didn’t use chore charts to give actual “chores”, but rather to establish a routine and personal responsibility. So you wouldn’t see things like vacuum the carpet, but rather brush teeth and get dressed.
This not only established a routine for our child but also helped keep us on track, also. Win-win!
How to Reward Kids WHEN USING A CHORE CHART
There are many different ways to reward for completing chores or responsibilities. One of my favorites is to give money equal to the child’s age. So a 4-year-old could make $4 per week or per month.
It won’t seem like much to you, but to kids, it’s always fun to stick coins and money in their piggy banks. Plus they have the added joy of getting to visit their bank when it’s time for a deposit.
Other ways you could reward include treats, screen time or a special toy. The possibilities really are endless.
