PRINTABLE Chore Chart

With the new school year here, I decided it was time for a new Chore Chart for my girls!  We've been doing chores on a somewhat regular basis, but I would always just write out a list for them.  They have told me that they NEED a list :)  It helps them attack a mess in a systematic way and they enjoy checking each task off as it's completed.
This is our new Chore Chart... I listed out cleaning responsibilities really specifically (otherwise they don't seem to know where to start!).  I  put the printed chart in a clear sheet protector (Avery brand from Walmart. I cut off the 3 holed strip on the one side) and the girls use Expo Washable Dry Erase Markers to check off the boxes... (yes, the markers are WASHABLE...isn't that wonderful?!!!  I think they're new.)  This way they use the same chart everyday... no re-printing!


I also made a blank Printable version for you!
I left some room at the top for you to doodle your kid's name all fancy-like :)
Just print, fill in chores, slip it into a sheet protector, grab some dry erase markers, and go crazy!

  1. Happy Comment HERE! I love this adorable chart and I am absolutely going to use it! I love the idea of being more specific though my kids can't read...I can! So I can just look at it and remind myself to be specific on times. Amy...once again you are amazing! Hugs my friend!

    P.S. I know it is long overdue but I worked on your feature yesterday and I am almost done! I start looking at your blog and get sucked in!

  7. My children have chores that they do really well and they do them every day but I am always having to remind them which ones they have left out. I have tried making lists but they always look rather "homemade". But these are really lovely! I will definitely be using these.

  26. So my first grader seems to be blind to her dishes on the table. And dropping things in the middle of the floor as she walks. I'm going to give this a try and see if I can get her involved in keeping our house organized.

  30. My teen has ADD and has a horrible time remembering being told to do chores if given more than three instructions at once. I can't just tell her to to go clean the kitchen, for example, because it is just too overwhelming for her and she doesn't know where to start. This is just perfect for her because I can be specific and itemize her chores and she can check them off to see her accomplishments! Thank you!

  34. Hi Amy, I'm going to use your chart for both my 6 year old son and 13 year old son. They've been doing chores for ages, but never with an actual printed chart they can tick things off as they complete them. I've always meant to do a chart up, but don't really know how to use anything other than Microsoft Word, lol. Thanks so much for this free printable :)

  35. Thanks so much! I'm going to use this for my 4yr old daughter as a chore/reward chart. I've been wanting to make/find one for a while, you just saved me a boatload of precious time and gave me something prettier than I would have come up with. :-)
