A responsibility chart (or kids chore chart printable) is an easy way to make chores a little more fun and exciting for kids.

And that’s crucial! Let’s be honest– Kids would rather browse YouTube or play a game than take out the bathroom trash. ?

Chore charts are also great for practicing positive reinforcement as a parent. (Maybe they will get small reward for completing their chart for a week/month, for example.)

Creating a DIY responsibility chart

Want to be able to use your chart over and over again without having to print new copies each week?

Self-laminating sheets make this extremely easy to do.

Laminating also makes it sturdier and you’ll be able to write on it with a dry erase marker.

Once you’ve finished with that, the only thing left to do is assign some age appropriate chores.

What chores are age appropriate?

Age appropriate chores for toddlers (2-3 years old):

  • Pick up toys
  • Put clothes in the hamper
  • Dust (feather duster or sock on hand)
  • Help wipe up messes
  • Help put clothes in the dryer

Age appropriate chores for preschoolers (4-5 years old):

  • Match socks
  • Help take care of pets
  • Clear and set the table
  • Empty small trash cans
  • Help put laundry away

Age appropriate chores for elementary age (6-9+ years old):

  • Sort and fold laundry
  • Help put laundry away
  • Help pack school lunches
  • Sweep
  • Wipe counters

Just remember– The more specific you can be with their chores, the better!
