A chore chart that doesn’t look like a chore.

Olliegraphic personalized chore chartThe chore chart that has worked the best for my family so far been a (not-so-pretty) laminated list with my kids’ pictures that I made myself. But even then, I can’t really add or change jobs unless I make a whole new chart, which made them obsolete a few months ago.

But now my kids are back to working hard for their money, since discovering personalized printable chore charts from one of our favorite designers Olliegraphic.


Artist Meg Bartholomy will create a cute, totally personalized chore chart based on your kiddo’s
likeness; just pick the features that best fit them and she’ll whip it
up into an easy-to-print pdf. Even better, though, is that the chart
allows you to write in their chores each week, with plenty of room for
gold stars, smiley face stickers, or, as they get older, $ signs.  -Kristen

    Thanks for the tip! I bought one for each kiddo. Let’s hope using the charts help. At least I have something cute to look at while we attempt to get our 2 and 4 year olds to pull their weight around here.

    I always wonder if these work with kids. Do they get your kids motivated to help out?

    Oh my gosh, yes Minnie! While every kid is different, my daughter loves the idea of checking off boxes, getting stickers for tasks, seeing a completed chore chart. It works in her classroom, and it works in our house. -Liz

    When my son was about four I made a large chart with each ‘chore’ written out and then a picture of him actually doing the chore beside the words. It helped him learn to read and to keep on track
