My toddler loves to help out around the house. It makes him feel big, and like the needed part of our family that he is. I want to respect his efforts, even like that time he completely emptied out the closets when he “brought me the laundry.”
I have chore charts that are fantastic for my older kids, but they’re not as helpful for my three-year-old pre-reader. This free printable chore chart by Kersey Campbell for Momtastic (via her blog And We Play) is perfect for him. He can see pictures of age-appropriate chores, and color them in as he finishes each one. This makes the chart a fun activity and its own reward all-in-one, as well as a simple way to help him participate in household tasks.
I love how this chore chart helps even our littlest ones feel like they’re doing their part around the house. Things go much more smoothly at home when everybody feels valued — and it doesn’t hurt when they have something to color, too.
