If you love your kids, then you will know that it is all about independence, courage and self-sufficiency in the child. Well, there are some lists in books of age appropriate chores out there, but I love to leave it up to the parent to see what is fit for their child to do at home.
In this post, we will go into the best free sampler of Blank Chore Charts that will inspire you to get your kids helping around the house more. But more importantly, they will be on the right path to independence and responsibility.
Please remember to visit our resources hub for Montessori Curriculum 3-6 activities and lessons! And don’t forget to check out our chore chart hub! It has great ideas to pick the perfect chore chart for multiple kids!
There are many simple and complex jobs or chores that kids can definitely do at home. Our homes will be cleaner, more organized, but this will also do a lot for our children in return.
It will give them a sense of belonging in their home and also help them build responsibility and independence. If you want to get started with hygiene “chores,” then be sure to get our free printable chore charts for multiple kids with 3-part cards HERE.
But be sure to come back because we are targeting the kitchen in this post and you can grab a freebie here, too!
We can try to sort chores by age all day long, but the truth is that all chores come in levels of difficulty. And just like any other life skill, is an upward spiral. That is why we categorize children by age groups.
They learn together and revisit the skills, just in increasing degrees if difficulty. Toddlers will try it once and if they are ready, they can do it (rudimentarily as it may be), then they cycle through it again, being able to do it better every time.
The best way to find age appropriate chores for children is to try it with them and see. They cycle through that skill again (going upward in the spiral) and they find that as they get older (and with the help of more practice), they can do it in a quicker and more complex way, then actually master that skill completely.
By the way, this list is already in the free printable at the end of this post. You will get a copy of a blank chore chart, in green and orange so you can print it out. Then, fill them out with the chores that for your home and your needs.
