I love this setup for chores that you want to do once every few months like clean your car, or clean ceiling fans, etc.

This layout is great for monthly challenges. For example, in January you might decide to tidy for 10 minutes a day. In February you can clean for 10 minutes a day. In March you might tackle one small area each day. The idea is to have monthly challenges and to get your entire home clean and organized within one year. Hopefully, some of the challenges will become habit and the upkeep will be a breeze.

Benefits of Chores

Chores teach kids responsibility. When kids do chores they feel responsible, independent, and contribute to the household. Chores teach kids what it takes to run a home. Our job is to give them the tools they will need later on in life and that includes basic household chores that they will have to do. When they learn how to do these things before they leave home they will be ready to live an independent life when the time comes.

Chores teach kids time management skills. They learn how to prioritize and get things done even when they have a lot on their plate. One of the tools I think we should give our children is the ability to prioritize their time and tasks when they have more than one thing to do. This is something they will experience later on in life and they need to know how to cope. Today, it is a matter of learning how to do homework, load the dishwasher, and then wash TV. In a few years’ time, they might have a few projects at work and other responsibilities all at once. This same basic skill will help them later on in life.

Chores help them appreciate their free time. Has it ever happened to you that you have had an entire free done and done less than you would have done when you went to work? This happens to me all the time. The less time I have the more I get done. And when I don’t have as much free time I appreciate and enjoy my free time more than when I have too much of it. If you make your child do her chores before she has free time, I guarantee you she will enjoy her free time more.

Should children be paid for chores?

In my opinion, children should have some chores that they have to complete before they can be paid for additional paid chores. They shouldn’t be paid for basic chores that should be required from all family members. However, when we offer additional chores, over and above the basic chores, it can be very beneficial to children. It teaches them the value of money and what is required to earn it. Chores teach them responsibility and work ethic. It should be a win-win solution. Paid chores should help you solve problems and get things done that you would have had to do or pay someone else to do.

15 Best Chore Charts for Kids (FREE Printable Templates)

Having your kids help out around the house is an essential part of raising them to be responsible, self-sufficient people.

It’s also an important part of raising kids who are grateful, support their family members, and know the value of hard work.

But it’s not always easy to get started or to keep track of it. 

A weekly chore chart can help.

Instead of just telling your child what you’d like them to do, and reminding them (over and over) to do it, it can be so much easier to track their household chores with a simple responsibility chart hung in a central location like your kitchen, refrigerator or entryway.

What Chores Should Your Kids Be Doing?

Even the youngest kids can begin to do basic chores in their room and around the house. 

A chore list with clear illustrations is the perfect solution for a child who can’t read yet to remind them of the simple tasks you want them to do each day. Start with just 2-3 chores per day, and grow from there, depending on your child.

For young kids, even personal hygiene activities can be considered daily chores as they learn to incorporate them into their daily routine.

Some responsibilities can be considered a “chore” until they have become a habit and your child no longer need a reminder. For example, brushing teeth, bringing their dishes to the sink when they are done with dinner, or taking their shoes off when they come inside.

Here are some age-appropriate chores younger kids ages 3-5 can begin to work on:

Older kids ages 6 and up can begin to take on more responsibility around the house. Here are some chores they might be ready for:

We hope you loved these free printable chore charts! We customized them from templates available on canva.com . You can customize them further, but you’ll have to create a free account to do so.

Happy house cleaning!

Ages 2 and 3

Ages 4 and 5

Ages 6 and 7

If you are reading this… you have kids.

And your kids have chores that you would like them to do.

Like them to do.

Remember those words.

You’d like them to help out around the house. 

Help out with their siblings. 

Yada, yada.

But whether or not they actually do it… that remains to be seen.

Let’s be honest… telling kids to do something is easy, but getting them to actually do it is the tricky part.

No matter what their age, humans by nature like to feel rewarded for their efforts.

Kids are no different.

They like to be given more than just a pat on the back for a job well done… they crave the feeling of working towards something bigger.

For the littlest ones, the reward needs to come fast.

It’s that whole short attention span thing.

Conversely, older kids are more likely to be okay with waiting… especially if they know it will pay off in the way of a trip to the movies, a new video games, etc….

And that is where the chore chart comes in.

No matter what their age, humans by nature like to feel rewarded for their efforts. Kids are no different.

So let’s get down to it, shall we?

Table of Contents

The (Dreaded) Chore List

First rule of thumb… chores should be age appropriate .

That is key.

After all, you wouldn’t ask a 4-year-old to wash the family car… anymore than you would ask a 16-year-old to make his own bath.

And while creating age appropriate chores may seem daunting… it’s really not.

It’s more about knowing your kids… their personalities, their limitations, etc… than about blindly assigning them jobs just for the sake of it. 

Keeping that in mind, start by asking yourself two questions:

How old is my child?

Is he or she capable of doing “x”?

Now, because I’m so awesome, I’ve gone ahead and done the research for you… breaking down chores by age category:

The chore chart you create should incorporate these, along with corresponding incentives.

But we will get to that in a minute.

Toddler Chores

Todders are simple creatures.

They wear their hearts on their sleeves… and can have a hard time expressing themselves.

Case in point… the temper tantrum, which is typically them just not knowing how to process a feeling or desire (ie… being tired, hungry or frustrated).

You can’t ask them to take on too much too soon; however, assigning simple chores gives them a sense of pride and self worth.

Believe it or not, they like to help at this age.

Keeping all of this in mind, try and think of a chore chart for toddlers as more of a guidebook for improving their developmental and motor skills… and less about responsibility.

Examples of chores for toddlers  include:

Turn these mini milestones into a fun, engaging chore chart… and you will both go the distance!

Kinder Chores

By this age, most children are in school for at least a few hours each week.

Whether it is pre-k or kindergarten, kids are learning more than just the alphabet and counting… they are being socialized.

They are refining their motor skills.

Things like learning how to share, tie their shoes, zipper their coats, eat with utencils… these are all valuable skills that will benefit them later in life.

The chore chart should mirror that.

Examples of chores for kinders include:

It’s probably not a good idea for kids this age to be putting glasses on the table; but, they can certainly get all of their plastic or paper dishes and cups out.

Holding them mildly accountable for helping will give them a great sense of pride.

Early Elementary Chores

Kids grow up fast.

Seriously, one minute you are swaddling them in your arms… the next they are glued to their tablets and tv sets.

Mickey Mouse is no longer cool… he’s been replaced by the likes of Sponge Bob, Bart Simpson and some girl named “Jessie”. 

So after we take a moment to wax nostalgia (sigh), we need to focus our attention on what that means for their responsibilities at home.

If kids this age can figure out how to download video games and program the DVR, they can certainly handle a little more on the ol’ chore chart.

Their chores should now incorporate a handful of items that they can actually take off your list.

Chores such as:

Double Digit Chores

Ah… what a glorious age!

Your child is now expressing themselves… loud and clear!

Not always in a good way either.

If may feel as if “Sassy” has become your daughter’s middle name… and you son practically lives in his room with headphones on all day.

You are well versed in what a selfie is… and may have now been asked by your child to stand 30 feet behind them at the bus stop.

Yes, time flies.

We need to adapt.

And so must the chore chart.

At this age, some Double Digit duties should include:

It may seem very “hard knock life” to you… but, trust me, they can handle these things.  And you deserve the help!

High School Chores

By now, your kids are truly young adults.

They are able to drive a car…

Can walk home from school on their own…

Use the oven…

Have a curfew.

Every bit of effort you have put into raising your child is coming full circle now. 

You are privy to a glimpse into the man or woman they will eventually become. And, hopefully, you are proud. 

That being said, their chores should reflect their unique personality and abilities… now more than ever.

Unload some of your daily chore burdens on them… without weighing them down too much, or dismissing their extracurriculars and other obligations.

Keep your eye on the prize… molding responsible, well rounded human beings.

Do that, and the chore chart will compliment everyone.

Some popular high school chore ideas include:

You’ve put in the hours… and earned yourself a little extra help around this house.

You also shouldn’t have to pay for it, in the way of a “mother’s helper” or cleaning service, when you have perfectly capable teens running amuck.

Sweet Reward

So, much like you wouldn’t hire someone to clean your house and not pay them… your kids need to feel as if completing their chores will offer them something in return.

The reward, so to speak, should vary by age… much like the chore chart, itself.

A toddler, for instance, may enjoy an ice cream cone… or a new doll… for a job well done.

Whereas a child age 4 or 5 may much rather stay up 20 minutes late… or earn themselves an extra hour of television time.

The elementary student likely wants something a little more…

Maybe it’s to see the new Lego movie with a friend in theaters.

Or go out to lunch on a Saturday with just you, at the restaurant of their choosing.

The value a child this age places on alone time with a parent, especially if they have siblings, is more than you think.

As for your 10-15 year old, spending time with you may not be top on their wish list these days.

Don’t worry. This too shall pass.

Try to be brave and give them what they do want… a new outfit, video game, a trip to the water park with two friends.

The reward here may take a little more earn, which is ok.

A good idea, in fact.

Make them accountable.

They need to put in the hard work for the reward… otherwise they may always expect things to be handed to them.

And that would not end well for either of you.

But don’t fret.

By the time your son or daughter is 16, they’ve likely come back around.

In some instances, they may even view you as a friend and confident now.

They value the sacrifices you’ve made for them… your advice…. your opinion.

Helping is the least they can do.

Still, it should be acknowledged.

Popular rewards for teenagers may include:

The chore chart at this age is more about keeping them organized than accountable.

Make it simple, but perhaps let them write in their own incentives.

They will be inclined to work harder if it’s for something they truly want.

The Printable Chore Chart

These are intentionally left blank so that you both have the opportunity each week to check in and re-prioritize if need be.

For instance, if you see that your child is having a tough time with completing one or more of the items, maybe you need to change them up a bit.

Or even eliminate one or two.

There will be a learning curve… but one you can successfully drive together.

Final Thoughts on the Chore Chart

The chore chart can be as simple, or as complex, as you want it to be.

The key is to select the one that works best for your child. The one that you will have the most success with.

Chores should not be torture for kids.

In fact, it’s just the opposite.

As with volunteering… the goal here is for your child to feel good about themselves when the chart is completed.

If you make the chart/reward system an obtainable one… it will work.

And remember: the chore chart can always be tweaked.

For instance, try this:

Rome wasn’t built in a day… but if you put a little bit of effort in, you will create a well-oiled chore machine that works for everyone in the family.  

It’s as simple as that.

What is a Chore Chart?

The chore chart is used to make a list of all household chores and then assign these chores to each member of the family. Divide and conquer approach in household chores save your time when every person in the house is too busy.

A Chores chart should contain the name of the person who will do chores the day when he/she completes it and details of tasks that he/she does and other necessary instructions if you want to train your child for future life and teach them how to behave in the outside world when they go to school or college. When children get paid for chores, they believe money is everything; then, they do their chores just for money. It would be best if you asked your children to help your mother to make her work easier, this creates a sense of helping in children. For that purpose, you need to download a chore chart template for kids and ask them to place a checkmark against the chore when they complete it.

It is the best way to motivate your children and teach them how to complete their responsibilities on time. If a child has a habit of saving money for the purpose of purchasing something, then you should give some money at the end of the week or after two days in return for the chores that he/she completes. It would be better to make a list of all the household chores and break this list and make it for the person in the house. When you complete your chore chart, hang it on the wall to remember the next chore. In our list of templates, you can get customizable, easy daily, weekly, and monthly chore chart templates for families and kids.

Step 5 : Make the first column header “Name” and then type the days in each column for which you want to create the chart. You can add another column as an “instruction” column header that can be used by the chart writer to put any specific instruction about the chore. 

Step 6 : Write the name of the person who will do the chore and write the details of the chores in the day column. If you write the chore in the “Monday” column, then the name of the person in this row placed in the “Name” column will do that work. 

If you want to make a monthly chore chart, then create 30 columns after the “name” column and write the chore in that date cell when you want to do this from a member of your house. Everyone has their own preference in document formats; some people want their documents in excel and some in Word. If you are an Excel lover, then don’t worry. You can get free excel chore chart templates from our fantastic collection.

free printable chore charts for kids PDF

Looking for printable chore charts for kids? These free printable kids chore charts and templates make it easy to start your own chore system at home!

If you know even a little bit about me, you know that I love charts and checklists. There’s just something so satisfying about getting organized and checking off those tasks! You could also say that I’m a stickler for responsibility, which I’ve tried to pass on to my daughters.

One of the best ways I’ve taught my kids how to be responsible and organized is with chore charts. My journey with chore charts has been filled with trial and error, but I can honestly say that the rewards have been worth the effort. And it’s important to find the system that works for you, you know?

I previously created a fantastic chore chart system for kids , complete with picture job cards for sale in my store, but now I’ve made a set of free printable chore charts for kids you can snag at the end of this post. They’re perfect if you’re just starting out or want something you can quickly print and start using instantly!

Why make your kids do chores?

For some parents, forcing their kids to do their chores seems like a neverending struggle. So, why make your kids do chores at all? I personally believe assigning tasks is essential, and here’s why:

Chores teach responsibility

A huge benefit of chores is that they teach your child how to be responsible. Yes, they can get every toy out of their closet to play with. And yes, they will have to pick up all those toys and put them away. Chores help teach that while tasks like cleaning up might not be fun, they’re necessary.

Research supports this, saying that children who have regular chores “have higher self-esteem, are more responsible, and are better able to deal with frustration and delay gratification.” That same research suggests that a child’s success later in life is directly influenced by whether or not they had to do chores as a young child. Crazy but true!

Kids learn life skills

Another important benefit of assigning chores is that they help your child develop independence so they can succeed in the outside world. Learning how to prepare meals, sort and do their own laundry, and keep their living space clean helps them function as adults.

No parent wants to get that panicked phone call from their college-age daughter because she put ten times the necessary detergent in the dorm washing machine. However, you can avoid situations like this by consistently expecting your kids to help with household chores. It’s that simple!

Chores help develop time management

A simple Google search on “time management” will get you hundreds, if not thousands, of resources about how to organize the hours in your day. It’s safe to say that time management is an essential life skill. Well, chores are an excellent way to help children organize their time wisely.

When you consistently enforce weekly chores, your child will begin to learn the importance of how they spend their time. For example, your rule might be that they can’t have tablet time until their chores are completed. Then the kid is responsible for how much time they spend completing their assigned tasks.

If they spend an hour whining about having to do them, that’s less time they get to spend on something they like doing. Eventually, your child will figure out that necessary tasks come first, then playtime.

You’re less burdened

Now, we’re finally to my favorite benefit of chores – parents are less burdened! While it may not be a day at the beach to model and teach your child how to do their tasks, you’ll reap the rewards of your consistency and dedication.

Just imagine a world where you aren’t the only one responsible for cleaning up, cooking, doing the dishes, and making the beds. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! By assigning chores, you can distribute the household chores more evenly and maybe even gain some free time in the process.

Tips for Starting a New Chore Chart System with Your Kids

Are you new to the whole chore chart thing? Here are my top tips for helping your kids be successful with their new responsibilities:

Work the printable chore chart for kids into your routine

An important thing to remember when starting up a chore chart routine is that change is hard , especially for younger children. They like routine and woe to the mom who tries to mess with it!

It’s a good idea to have a family meeting with all of your children to let them know how the process works. This isn’t something you want to spring on them without warning. Instead, explain what chores you’re assigning, when they need to be completed each day, and how the reward system works.

Also, keep in mind that attitude is everything! Act excited when you introduce the chore chart, even if you’re not exactly feelin’ it. There’s a reason a mother’s motto is “fake it ‘til you make it.” And you should be happy about this! A future is coming where you don’t have to clean the kids’ bathroom! 

Once your children understand their daily duties, it’s time to teach, teach, teach. Your kids will need a little help in the beginning, and expect the first week or two to be, well, exhausting. Just keep in mind that it won’t always be this way!

Be consistent

Expect to be met with some resistance from your kids, even if they have the most even-tempered personality. Just because your preschooler whines and cries that they have to clean their room doesn’t mean you’re a horrible tyrant of a parent.

Just be consistent, and they’ll eventually learn that you won’t cave just because they shed a few tears. Make sure you follow a predictable daily routine , and everyone will begin to understand what they’re supposed to do.

Here are some extra tips for the first few weeks:

Set reasonable consequences

So, what happens if your child doesn’t complete their assigned chores?

The simplest answer is that they don’t do anything else until they finish their tasks. This includes having TV or tablet time or playing with any toys. Patiently tell your child that as soon as they complete their jobs, they can do something fun. Be firm but kind. And be consistent!

Hang the chore chart templates where your kids can easily get to them

Do you know the saying, “Out of sight, out of mind?” Take this to heart!

Hang your child’s printable chore chart where they’re sure to see it multiple times a day. Prime locations include on the fridge, on the kitchen wall, or in their room.

Don’t make the chores too difficult

Have you ever looked at your to-do list and gotten so overwhelmed by the sheer number of tasks that you ended up binge-watching Netflix shows in your pajamas instead? Well, a chore chart that’s too long can make your kids feel the same way!

Having too many chores can make your kids want to give up before they even start. Consider your child’s age and schedule when deciding how many duties to assign them. For example, a toddler might only have four to five simple tasks to do each day. Your teenager, on the other hand, could probably handle a longer list.

Create a reward system

The most essential part of creating a chore chart system is deciding on a reward system.

You can take several approaches, depending on what you think will work best for your kids. For example, we pay our kids according to their age –  $10/week for my 10-year-old and $8/week for my 8-year-old. That means they have to save their money to buy what they want.

And if you don’t ever have cash to pay out for your kids’ allowance, don’t worry! You can use a free printable allowance tracker like the ones below to keep track of your child’s allowance “balance”… a great way to give kids an allowance without having to run to the ATM every week!

If you don’t want allowance tied to your kids’ chores, you could try a weekly/monthly reward instead. Some great rewards for kids completing their chore charts include:

And of course, screen time is a great reward that doesn’t cost you a thing! You can hop over to this post to grab these screen time reward coupons for kids: Printable Screen Time Reward Coupons for Kids

9 Ways that Chores Benefit Kids

Some parents worry if kids should be asked to do tasks at home. Did you know that there are at least nine reasons why kids will actually benefit from doing their chores !

How to use a Chore Chart

The more you involve your child, the more successful the entire process will be. Consider holding a family meeting to introduce the chore system and set the rules. List the chores that need to be done together and divide them up fairly, taking into account each family member’s responsibilities, capabilities, available time, etc.

Allow your kids to make suggestions on how to successfully implement the chore system. Once you have decided on the implementation, choose a responsibility chart together (a family chore chart or an individual chore chart for each family member, etc.).

This section of the site includes additional info such as: Why use chore charts? How to use them, age-appropriate chores, and tips on creating a chore list for each child.

If you want your kids to cooperate and help you implement the chore chart system, get them involved in the process.

Let them choose their chore chart, give them some optional chores to choose from, let them decide when the deadline for tasks will be, how many jobs they think they can handle, etc. The more involved they are, the more they will cooperate. If your child chooses the task that he has to do, then the chances are higher that he will do it!

Adapt your chores to your child.

You might find that your child cannot do all of the age-appropriate chores that other kids his age can do. You might need to teach your child how to pack a dishwasher or how to vacuum. Some kids are not capable of doing specific tasks even though they should be able to perform them. You can try and show him how to do it if you think that it will help, but if not, it might only cause frustration. There are enough chores that he can handle. Move on and find something that he can do.

Let your kids choose the prize, privilege, or reward that they will receive if they do their chores.

They can either choose a privilege or small prize or something that you do together as a family, such as going out for ice cream. You might need to intervene and ensure that the reward is reasonable. Once you have agreed on the prize, don’t forget to follow through! You certainly wouldn’t like it if you worked all week and then your boss couldn’t be bothered to give you your salary!

Make sure that your child knows how to do the chores that you are expecting him to do.

Sometimes we assume that they know how to do something, and they don’t. Making a bed, putting dishes in the dishwasher or folding laundry might seem trivial to us, but it isn’t self-explanatory. Show them how to do each chore and watch them doing it to make sure that they understand what you expect from them. In the beginning, you can do the tasks together to ensure that your child knows exactly what you expect of him.

Use incentives.

If your child is not interested in doing chores but wants to do something else, you can explain that they can do whatever they want once they have completed their duties. For example, I understand that you want to go over to your friend, but you have to tidy your room first. This is often the most effective way to get kids to do something. Some children need instant gratification, and they need to know what is in it for them right away.

Start with a few chores and gradually increase them as your child learns to cope with them and gets older.

If you have never asked your child to do chores before and you suddenly present him with a chore list , it might be a little overwhelming. Start with one or two and gradually increase them as your child becomes more proficient. Make sure that your child is physically capable of doing the chores that you have asked him to do. Some tasks seem simple to us, but they are quite tricky for kids.

Try and get your family to work together as a team when getting things done.

It teaches kids how to work together, how to deal with possible conflicts, and about being part of a group with a common goal. Often it is easier to have each person do their own chores, but learning to work together can be a great lesson to teach your kids!

Even young kids want to help out, particularly when their older siblings have chores to do.

It helps them feel grown up and develops their sense of responsibility and self-esteem. You can give them basic chores that they can do, such as picking up toys or feeding your pet. They will feel that they are also contributing and helping out! Sometimes you give your child a chore to do, and it takes longer than if you would have done it yourself. Be patient. They will become more proficient, and it will eventually actually help you.

Be a role model.

If your child sees that you or your spouse don’t complete household chores, then they will do the same. Once you decide what tasks need to completed by a specific time, then this should apply to everyone. If your child sees you leaving your things around the house, then you can’t expect her to put her belongings away.

Hang the chore chart somewhere central, where it will be seen by all family members every day.

It could be on the fridge, on the front door, or even in your kid’s bedroom. If you don’t see the chart, you might forget to implement the chore chart system. Consistency is the key! You can either use an individual chart for each child or have a family chore chart for the entire family.

Free Printable Chore Charts to Help Kids Get Organized

This free printable chore chart is the perfect way to help kids get organized and reach their goals over summer break or during the school year!

Kids' Chore Charts in Two Color Schemes

I hate to nag. It’s frustrating to me because I feel like I’m making the same requests over and over without getting results. It’s annoying to my kids because they always feel like I’m on their back about something. And it just doesn’t create the best environment in our house!

But at the same time, it’s important for me to teach my two boys to take responsibility and complete certain tasks each day. So how do I make sure that happens without the dreaded nagging?

Enter: chore charts!

Why Chore Charts Are So Helpful

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosures here .

You know I’m all about a good list, and chore charts are the ultimate list making tool for several reasons.

First, chore charts eliminate the need for nagging! Woohoo! Rather than me having to remind my kids of all of the tasks they are responsible for, the chart does the “telling” for me. It acts as a neutral third party and causes less friction than me getting on their case over and over.

I also love that the chore chart provides consistency. Checking the chart when they get home from school has become a habit, so they know exactly what they have to do each day.

Free Printable Chore Chart in a Blue and Green Color Scheme

Expectations aren’t constantly changing. They’re not wondering whether they have to do their chores or not. It’s all laid out clearly for them on the chart.

When we have set expectations in place, there’s a lot less fighting, chores are completed more consistently, and its a more positive all around experience for everyone!

How to Use Free Chore Chart Printables

To create my boys’ lists of responsibilities, I simply print out the chore chart printable provided below. I work with each boy to come up with some things that they want to work on, along with chores for them to complete around the house.

Free Printable Chore Charts for Boys and Girls

It will look a little different for each kid, but we try to have them contribute their ideas for the chart so they feel more personally invested in it and are more likely to be excited about it!

There is room to mark off chores each day, but if certain chores only need to be done once per week or a few times per week, we typically just X out the days they don’t need to be done.

What Chores and Activities to Include on a Chore Chart

So what exactly do we put on a chore chart? Well, the most obvious answer is chores! Here are some ideas of household tasks that kids can help with:

Possible Chores for a Chore Chart

[Not sure which chores to choose? This post from The Happy Housewife has a great list of chore suggestions broken down by age.]

Free Printable Chore Chart for Kids

Possible Habits to Include on a Chore Chart

Along with chores, I will also include daily habits I want my kids to build on their chore charts. Here are some ideas of habits to include:

Some of these items are small, trivial type things, but I have still included them on the boys’ chore chart for a few reasons.

First, there have been certain seasons where I have really worked to break bad habits like leaving wet towels on the floor or leaving shoes in the middle of the mudroom instead of putting them away. Putting these simple items on their charts acts as an extra reminder to replace the old bad habit with a new good habit (again, without me having to nag).

These small habits are also quick wins. Who doesn’t love checking off something from their list?! When some of the larger items may feel daunting, these little easy things are items they can get out of the way fast, all while building those all-important habits.

Chore Chart with a Blue and Green Color Scheme

Obviously, I don’t include every item on these lists on my kids’ chore charts at the same time. But it is nice to be able to rotate things in and out so chores don’t get monotonous and so we can work on building different habits.

Reuse the Same Chore Chart Over and Over

Once we have decided what chores and activities to include on the chart, I like to run it through my laminator  so the boys can check off the goals they accomplish with a dry erase marker. This way, we can use one sheet over and over again without having to print a new chart each week.

Free Printable Chore Chart in a Pink and Purple Color Scheme

Along with helping to keep the kids on track, the chore chart is also helpful to me because anytime they come to me saying, “I’m boooorrrrreeeddd!” I can point them to the chart, and immediately they have several ideas of tasks they can work on!

printable chore chart calendar

They’re not just useful for kids! If I am trying to build new habits or have been having trouble staying on track with my daily habits, I’ll use these charts to help keep myself focused and motivated as well!

Download the Free Printable Chore Chart (in Two Cute Color Schemes!)

If chore charts would be helpful in your house, you can snag the free printables below. I’ve included two different color schemes so your kiddos can choose the one they like best!

[If you are a printable lover like I am, you can see all 300+ pages of free printables that we offer on the blog in our free printables library !]

I hope these chore charts will be as helpful for you as they have been for us! If we can eliminate nagging while building new healthy habits at the same time, I will always call that a win!

Chore Chart Printables: Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Chore charts are not just for kids. Adults can use chore charts to hold them accountable for those tasks they want to complete daily, weekly, or a few times per week.

Chore charts are a great way to see our most important recurring tasks in one place. AND we get the satisfaction of checking each item off the list as we complete it!

The “most” important chores will vary by household and life stage, but if I had to choose 5 chores to stay on top of consistently to help a home run more smoothly, they would be:

This will vary by child, but I would say that many children can start helping with small tasks as young as age 2.

One of the first jobs I gave my older son Connor was to take the toilet paper out of the package and put it in the bathroom cabinet. It certainly wasn’t done perfectly, but he took ownership of the job and did it proudly. (He would even get offended if I did it myself or had someone else do it! That was HIS job!)

Getting little ones started with helping around the house from an early age can help form that habit that will grow as they get older!

How do you use chore charts at your house? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below!

Keep it up with the chores. My kids were THERE (cute as a button, awful chore-doers), too, and with age, they are now great chore-doers. Their spouses will love me. 🙂

https://giftieetcetera.blogspot.com

Ugh, getting kids to clean up. With my three it sounds like I am slowly torturing them by all of their screaming and tears. No amount of warning, discussion or positive attitude makes it easy. My hope is as they get older there will just be less messes to clean. My kids are 6,5, and 3, I think this rewards chart might do the trick. A visual for all three to understand and have goals for. I like it!

I have been using your “planning my day” for my homeschooled boys. It has help us out tremendously. They have scheduled lessons with their teachers, regular lessons, and extra activities. Little notes of reminders are now too small! Thanks for a full page!

This is great! These forms are simple yet covers the bases. Right now I use a popsicle method which works great but when I’m ready to move onto just having pencil and paper, this will be a great form!

Do yo have a version in spanish?

Sadly, we haven’t gotten into translations yet! So sorry about that!

I’ve had a difficult time organizing anything, let alone my life due to my ADHD and dyslexia. But I am working very hard at it. A lot of the tools you have on your site are very useful and I appreciate all your hard work putting everything all together. I don’t know how you do it with 2 boys! Thanks again

THIS is what I needed today! Been feeling super sorry for myself after cleaning up after everyone yet again! And I was thinking that my girls are old enough to start helping out more! So you must have known that mums like me needed this today! Printing it out as I type this comment – lifesaver! Thanks!!

So glad it will be helpful for you, Alice! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

Thank you for this idea! My daughter hates doing chores but likes lists so I am hoping this will motivate her ?

Aw, I hope it’s helpful for her! Thanks, Milena!

Hi Abby, while I don’t have kids yet I did utilise these printables for myself and my partner for cleaning the house. I love that they are called Goals and not Chores. I see us as a team and these things (cleaning things) need to be done. It’s great when you can share them. We all mess up the house we all need to clean. Thanks for sharing.

Aw, great! So glad they have been helpful for you all, Janine! Hope you’re having an awesome week! <3

These look very helpful! Thank you!

So glad they will be helpful for you, Helen! Hope you’re having a great week! <3

Free Printable Chore Chart Templates

These 4 free printable Chore Chart Templates can be used to remind the member of your family what tasks and duties they should try to accomplish throughout the week.

Doing chores is being part of a family and the chore chart is a good reminder of it.

Chore charts aren’t necessarily just for kids, so I created these 4 chore chart templates with a minimalist design that can work well for all ages.

(This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my  disclosures here. )

Free Printable Chore Chart Templates

How to use these free Printable Chore Chart Templates for kids (and adults too)

To use this chore chart, simply print the design you like most.

If you’re planning on using a chore chart for each member of your family, I recommend printing a different design for each person.

Once printed, you can use the white space on top to either write your child’s name (or other family member’s name) or to write down the dates of the current week .

Write down up to 7 tasks per week in the tasks column and tick the day of the week when a task is complete. 

For tasks that don’t need to be completed daily, you can grey out the boxes of certain days ahead to signal that the task doesn’t have to be done on certain days.

How to make these printable chore chart templates reusable week after week?

There is a simple way to make this chore chart even more convenient. To avoid having to reprint and rewrite the chores every week., simply laminate your chore chart and use fine tip wet-erase markers to write on it.

This way you can easily wipe and change the content every week without needing a new print.

If these printables aren’t exactly what you’re looking for, you can also find many cute chore charts on Amazon . I specifically link this one if you’d like to have multiple children on one same chore chart.
