This is the time of year when people are making lots of proclamations about what they plan to do for the rest of the year. My husband and I are no exception to this rule. We’ve got big plans for 2015 – not the least of which is getting our kids on a schedule that includes helping out around the house.
To that end, I have been researching kids’ chore charts for MONTHS. There is some seriously great stuff out there, friends. We will likely end up with some hybrid of what we’ve seen because we need something that will work for both a beginning reader and a just-turned 4 year old.
Here are some of the best DIY chore charts I’ve seen.
I love, love, love the simplicity and flexibility of this DIY chore chart from A Spotted Pony. Some wooden circles, magnets, Mod Podge, and baking sheets are all this one takes.
This chore chart from Workman Family is totally cute and great for kids of all ages. I also love that it could be included as part of a family organization station rather than something that might stick out like a sore thumb.
The Vintage Mother totally nails the basics with her FREE Printable Chore Charts. Completely customizable, super stylish and so, so easy. It doesn’t get better than this.
As I said, my kids are pretty little so this chore chart from My Name is Snickerdoodle would work well for them . Not only is it super simple but there’s also something so satisfying to littles about snaping things closed.
For those of you who are more techy than crafty, the iRewardChart app might be more your speed. It’s got some great features, is easily customizable and syncs across devices so kids and parents are all able to track progress at any given time. Love this one.
Those are some definite favorites, but we also love these DIY chore charts:
