The Sanity Saver I’d like to share with you today are these adorable printable chore charts for kids.
Summer is just around the corner and with all the kids home during the day the house is bound to be messier than usual. In an effort to help control the mess and keep the productivity up, I came up with a printable chore chart that can be customized and changed up however you like!
For this particular chart, the chores are organized into 4 categories – chores for good hygiene, chores for their bedroom, chores for our home, and other misc. tasks to complete.
I have found that itemizing the chores for younger kids makes cleaning more fun for them. For example, if I have a chart with only 3 things that they need to get done everyday, chores get boring faster – entire chores don’t get done, and the charts become useless. But with a big list of small tasks, they have more to mark things off and they like to see progress. Because of this I list everything. So, rather than listing clean your room, I list all the tasks that need to be done in their room: make your bed, pick up your toys, put your laundry away, etc.
