It's time to start our first chore chart for my 5 year old. I used the custom chore chart maker found HERE to make my template. I chose to keep it simple, but you can embellish quite a bit if you wish.
I laminated the chart itself and then my son and I sat down to think of chores. We thought of a lot of different ones, that way each week or two we can change it up and not only learn a variety of ways to help around the house, but also so we don't get bored with the same ol' chores all the time. I also laminated some cute gold stars to stick on when we complete a chore. Once we get a certain amount of stars up on the chart, he gets paid! We're really into putting money in our piggy bank right now.
