Preschoolers Chore Chart

I’m a firm believer in children having chores.

Actually, we call them “responsibilities” here.

Chores has such a negative connotation, don’t you think?  Responsibilities build self-esteem and pride in one’s accomplishments.

In my opinion it’s never too late (or too early) to start teaching your children about responsibility.  When my children could walk they began having tasks that they were proud of, such as putting their bib or clothes in the hamper and helping to clean up toys.

The Preschooler Chore Chart uses pictures, so reading isn’t necessary.  You will want to review the pictures with your preschooler and make sure they understand what you want them to do.

 

The Preschooler Chore Chart Download includes:

Basic Chore Chart

Chore Chart Bundle (print it if it works for you, otherwise customize your own using the other pages).

 

Rewards

We do not provide our children with  monetary compensation for fulfilling their responsibilities.  In our home every family member helps with the household responsibilities to the extent they are able.    Instead of receiving an allowance for their work, they earn  privileges by fulfilling their responsibilities.   These privileges vary by child but  include such rewards as: computer or iPad time, selecting a movie for family movie night or having a special treat or dessert.

  1. I love seeing other's ideas & tweaking too!

    I think chores are ESSENTIAL for children. :) Great job!

  2. Ok, as much as I hate to admit this, I have girls. When I say girls I mean my cleaning ladies. They come twice a month to do all the dirty work for me. I love them but I think they need one of these chore charts! It bugs me to no end when they forget to do something!

  3. My take on chores is that I haven't given my boys enough of them.

    This came to light tonight when Noah (8yo) casually commented Whoa, mommy! You need to do dishes– the sink is really full!

    Doh! Big mistake, son. Guess what your next job is going to be? ;)

  4. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I know I’m really late to the game but I’d love to download your chore chart and pictures. I can’t seem to find a place to click to download. Can you help?

    • Hi Sara,

      Thanks for letting me know that the download links weren’t showing. When I had my blog moved to WordPress I lost some of the posts, links and videos. I’ve updated the post now so you should have no problem downloading the free printables.
