Last week I shared our new chore chart, and I’m now seriously regretting the title. Instead of DIY Chore Chart, I should’ve named it, “How to get your kids to beg you for more work!” because that’s what’s happening in our home now.
The kids are loving the fact that they get to choose their extra chores and earn as much as they want. I’m loving that the house is cleaner, and my husband and I aren’t the ones doing all the extra work.
The extra chores are great, but the kids know that before they can start earning money they need to complete their daily chores or, as we’ve started calling them, “family contributions.” (This may or may not have something to do with the fact that every time “chore” came out of my mouth my daughter would start crying.)
I designed these two chore charts to be placed in 5×7 frames so the kids can check off the completed chores every day with a dry erase marker. Of course, if you prefer to print a new one each day, you can do that too. I gave them each a few daily chores and then left space at the bottom to add the chores that are done on a weekly basis.
