This chore chart for kids is a perfect introduction to family responsibilities for your kiddos! Download the chore chart, fill it out with our own goals for your children, and watch them rise to the occasion.
As long as we’re talking about cleaning houses, let’s do one for the kiddos! A friend of mine asked recently if we had a printable chore chart for kids and I was like No… but we should. And that’s how this came to life!
What to Do With a Kids’ Chore Chart
This one doesn’t need much explanation. Just download and print our chore chart for kids, then hang it on your fridge or bulletin board, and go to town. You can fill in daily and weekly tasks and as kids complete them they can add a check mark or a sticker in the corresponding box. My kids are crazy into stickers and charts, so the little gold star stickers work perfectly. They almost see it like a little game.
For us, the chores are still pretty simple because we have a two year old and a four year old. Our daily tasks include things like making the bed or clearing the plates (for our 4 year old). Other ideas could be tidying their bedrooms, saying please and thank you, and putting their laundry in their hampers.
Weekly tasks might be one-off chores that we need help with that week (raking leaves, cleaning up an art project, and so on). We don’t necessarily fill every line with chores, but if your kids are older they might have more responsibilities. You could even add homework, drinking water, eating a meal (if you have finicky eaters), or helping a sibling with something.
I’d love to know what chores you might put on the chart for your kids. Or if you’re an adult, what you like to accomplish every day! Heck, I’d use this thing for myself if I had a week of things to accomplish.

Other Ways to Use It at Your House
Now that we’ve been using it for a while, we’ve found lots of ways to use the chore chart in different applications. You can use it to track homework for different kids or classes. Another great idea is to use as a reading tracker if you have kids with reading goals. It’s a great tool for homeschooling too!
Another favorite use is to help track good behavior. We’ve sometimes filled in the daily blank lines with things like “say please and thank you. Or “offer to help your sister.” It helps serve as a visual reminder for our kids that they need to pitch in to the family in lots of different ways.
One thing that I highly recommend is laminating your chore chart. Then get a dry erase pen so that you can reuse it. These self-laminating sheets are perfect if you don’t have a laminator and don’t want to go to the print shop.
I hope that the chore chart is a positive addition to your family, too! xoxo
