Have your kids been slacking on their daily chores lately? Or really, have you been slacking on enforcing them? First, give yourself a break; summer just unofficially ended. Second, I’ve got help for you: Download one of these cool printable chore charts for kids. They will help.

Even toddlers and preschoolers can be tasked with daily chores. Kids that age actually love helping out, and an illustrated chore chart they can adorn with check marks or stickers or scribbles is an easy way to encourage their participation. For older kids, printable chore charts might not motivate so much as remind them of what needs to get done and when. Which is fine, as long as the result is still a clean house.

Or maybe you need a printable rewards chart like this one, to help them focus on a specific task, like potty training, or earning screen time by helping around the house.

As for whether you should pay kids for chores or not? Check out Kristen and Liz’s recent discussion about whether you should you pay your kids for chores which is very helpful — and also entertaining!
