Chore Charts

Okay, so, the kiddos in my life are getting to the age where they should start doing minor tasks around the house, or chores. If you start giving children responsibilities at a younger age, it can give them more respect for doing things for themselves and earning rewards for doing so. I, personally, like the idea of chore charts – they’re easy to manage and give the children a visual of their progress and achievements. You don’t have to reward your child with money after they’ve completed the tasks at hand – try an extra story at bedtime on a chosen night or allow them to arrange a play date with one of their friends as their reward. You can even try a prize basket or coupons – check out these great incentive ideas for When the Pigs Fly and Wondermom Wannabe.

Above is a great list of a bunch of different styles of chore charts – hopefully, you can find one that will suit the kids in your life! Thanks to Kids Activities Blog for the great ideas.
