Here are the chore charts we use in our home and this is how we learned what our chores are. Take a look at how you can have chore charts for multiple children and be sure to grab it as a free printable. It comes along with cards for easy learning all about chores.

This is my children’s bathroom. We have a simple and clean setup. The use a learning tower, a timer for hands and teeth, the chore charts, a soap pump, a small cup and a special hand towel right by the sink. I keep decorations to a minimum at this point in their development.
Here is a close-up of the charts I made. The one on the left is for my 4-year old. It helps her visualize the chores since she isn’t reading fluently yet. The chore chart on the right is for older children (that can read proficiently). My son uses this chart. I give them dry erase crayons to check their chores off as they complete them because I laminated them for easy reuse.
You can see our handy timer at the bottom of her chore chart. It has a button with the picture of a hand and a button with the picture of a tooth. When you press a button, the light at the bottom starts blinking green and as time runs out, it starts blinking faster until it turns red. The hand button lasts 1 minute and the tooth button lasts two. I highly recommend it!
Both charts have the same chores. And I also made matching cards for our learning lesson. The chores included cover two rooms in the house: the bedroom and the bathroom. I like it that they complete the chores in one room before moving to the other room. You can also laminate them for durability, especially if using with multiple children.
The chores for the bathroom include:
- wash your hands
- wash your face
- floss your teeth
- brush your teeth
- brush your hair
The chores for the bedroom include:
- make your bed
- get dressed
- put my clothes away
- put my toys away
The learning cards can be used as Montessori 3-part cards or simply as flashcards. The point of them is to use the cards to talk about each chore, do it with them, showing them step by step on how to practice good hygiene. You could even do some of the activities in THIS POST to learn about germs and how to keep clean.
