A chore chart printable is a great way to get some of those household chores off your plate by sharing the work with the older kids.
Slowly adding in easy tasks for younger kids gets them realizing they too are important family members.

Lazy kids make lazy adults.
Teach them as young kids and it will make it so much easier for the whole family in the long run.
Getting them to understand that you aren’t trying to give them a hard time but instilling that being part of this family, learning to take care of a home by having the responsibility of age-appropriate chores is important for every age group.
Having a great chore chart that shows daily chores can be fun and don’t have to be hard work if everyone works together.
Using a variety of chore systems depending on the age of the kids might work best.
You can try different ones to see which ones are a fit for your family. This summertime chore system worked for us.
Here are some ideas to think about before deciding on a chore chart:
- Will it be a fun chore chart?
- Will include daily tasks, weekly tasks, or both?
- Maybe it’s just a printable chore list that is already made for you.
- Will it include specific chores?
- At the end of the week will it include a reward system?
- Will there be an allowance attached to begin teaching the value of money?
- What if the list of chores isn’t done?
- It could be their own chore chart personalized just for them.
- It could be a chore calendar
- Or one using a wipe-off board and dry erase markers.

I’ve included two types of chore charts. Each one is a different design.
One is for the whole family and allows you to assign each specific chore to individual family members so they know their weekly chores.
The other chore chart printable has a spot for daily chores as well as a block to assign household duties depending on which day the task needs to be done.
