Children love independence and self-sufficiency. Doing chores at home is a wonderful way for them to help out at home, for them to practice important life skills that they will use for the rest fo their lives and for them to feel like big kids. Here, we show you a beautiful bundle with 12 Printable Chore Charts Pictures and Practical Activities that you and your kids will love!
I know that having chore charts for multiple kids can be a task in itself, but this unit bundle is awesome to do together as a family as both younger and older kids learn what chores to do and how do them the right way.
Sure, they will need your guidance and even your accountability on a regular basis, especially the little ones and those kids that are not intrinsically motivated. But don’t underestimate the importance of these skills and it is a lot of fun watching them learn to do more and more on their own as they get older.
Printable Chore Charts Pictures and Practical Activities
As you know, not all kids are super excited about chores or any kind of work at home. In which case, it is especially important to instill, in a fun and gentle way, a love for cooperation and teamwork. It’s all about balance and fairness.
In our family, there are some dreaded chores (unloading the dishwasher and putting their laundry away) and some beloved chores (like piano practice and caring for our chickens). I try to keep a balance each day between the chores they love and those that they don’t love as much.
This will teach kids that we won’t always like everything in life and we still have to do things that we would prefer to skip. Dad and I also point out our chores that we do daily that we like and dislike. We also point out how we don’t complain about them when we have to do them.
Come up with a plan that works for you and your kids. Some of our kids’ chores are daily (like making their beds and gathering our fresh eggs) and others are weekly chores (like harvesting fruits and vegetables from our family garden and wiping up their bathroom).
Guidance with Chores
Another important family chore to point out about chores is that kids are going to be more confident in doing them independently and doing them right the first time if:
1 We give thorough instructions several times, but first, make sure that they are age appropriate chores.
2 We let them practice the chores in front of us so we can give them guidance and feedback on how they are doing them.
3 We keep them accountable on following through and on doing their personal chores right.

This bundle includes 22 pages, but it’s actually more because some of them are to be printed twice (like the 3-part cards, the memory game and more). Keep the digital file so you can use it over the years, as you need to. This can easily fall into the printable Montessori category as well.
