I think I have designed and created over 50 chore charts.. and thats on the low side of estimation.
I decided I needed something really simple and came across this.
You can use paper plates.. I used construction paper. I know I will need to make adjustments
I took the chores we had already had assigned and added a few that weren't. I came up with 11 and the spacing needed 12. So I made a free space.
The chores are as follows:
these chores are done 3x day- 15 min chore
Kitchen: wash table, chairs, counters, sweep
Living Room: Clear off couches, pick of floor and sweep
Bathroom: clean counters, wipe toilet, sweep floor
School Room: Put away supplies, sweep
Mud Room/Family Closet: make sure clothes, coats, shoes etc are put up, sweep
Dishes: wash dishes, put away clean ones
these are the done as needed chores
Van: cleaning out the inside of the van as needed
Trash: take out trash, put a new bag in
Laundry: take laundry from dryer and help fold towels
Porch: Keep back porch clean and free of clutter
Dinner: Prepare dinner or help prepare dinner depending on age.
I have the chores divided in to partner teams.
Jacob 12 and Ezra 9 mos ( he is there for support :) )
Quinten 10 and Urijah 2
Abigail 8 and Olivia 4
Isaac 7 and Zachary 5
( as I was typing this I realized all the partner ages =12)
The chart can be rotated as you wish.. I think I will rotate it daily for now.
