Make Children's Chore Cards

We made chore cards. I listed the chore, and they decorated the front. On the back we described the chore (so doing the dishes didn't mean wash the cups and you're done). We included feeding and watering animals, making dessert, vacuum, taking out garbage, etc. We also had a free card. We then laminated them.

This way the kids understood what each chore was, and there were some fun stuff too. We made enough cards so each child had three chores. When the chore was done, they returned it to a container and then we knew the chore was done. You can then reward them for doing chores and not having to remind them. It was fun everyday to gather around and pass them out like a deck of cards.

This is a unique way to make chores less like work and more like fun!

This is a good idea. My 9 year old Grandson is coming for a 2 week visit. I plan on several fun activities while he's here but I think he needs to help a little with chores.

He always asks for toys and I think he should help Grandma in return.

Great tip! I love that you leave a space to describe the chore, so there is no "confusion" about what it takes for the chore to be completed.
