Thank you to P&G for sponsoring this post.
Doesn’t it seem like the to-do list is never ending? I am finding myself a little stressed out these days trying to balance everything, my business, the kids’ activities, mom life, hobbies, and the housework. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. These days I am taking help wherever I can get it.
And that comes in the form of choosing dependable products to get the job done quickly and effortlessly… Oh and chores (more about that in a minute).
One of my biggest obstacles is making sure everyone’s laundry is clean when they need it. My daughter needs her gymnastics leotard every Wednesday and her basketball uniform twice a week. Soccer is starting up so there are several uniforms that will need to be clean and ready throughout the week, on top of our regular laundry load, it can really add up!

Introducing your Kids to Doing Chores
My kids are 10 and 7 and it is about time we introduced them to chores. If I am being truthful, we have tried doing this a few times but it never stuck so we are trying to use this Chore Challenge chore chart to help encourage them to help out.
Printable Chore Chart
There is a colored printable chore chart as well as a blank one that the kids can color themselves. The idea is to color in each space along the path when they finish that particular chore. We are asking that they finish a chore chart completely once per week. We left the path blank so you can add whatever chores are applicable to your family. This also allows you to add a chore in more than once a week.
My kids are visual thinkers so this is working well so far. When the chart is complete you can give them a reward or an allowance or anything you deem appropriate, or they can just feel good that they have finished coloring in their chart.
Choosing Age-Appropriate Chores
When coming up with a chore list for your child, it is important to think about what chores he/she can do properly. Finding age-appropriate chores is a great idea so that you can set your child up for success. Here is a short list of some of the ideas we came up with for our 7 and 10 year old.
- Feed the Pets
- Empty the Dishwasher
- Fold the Laundry
- Put the Laundry Away
- Clean up the Playroom
- Clean up Your Bedroom
- Sweep the Floor
- Mop the Floor
- Water the Plants
- Take out the Trash
- Set the Table
- Make Your Bed
- Clean out the Car
- Wipe Down the Counter
- Clean Up the Table after Dinner
- Wash the Windows
- Clean Bathroom Sink
I hope you find this chore chart helpful for your family, and don’t forget to stock up on Tide using the high value coupon. It expires soon so don’t miss out!
