I am a big believer in giving our children the value of understanding how to care for things. I think instilling early ethics truly can make a difference in a child’s life. This is why I am sharing my Preschool Chore Chart Printable.
This is a very simple chore chart for preschool age. The tasks are what we have found are easy enough for our preschooler to do, but still challenges her to do her best.
I never expect perfection, but I do expect a good try. The best thing about having a “chore chart” is that everyone gets to see the progress.
Your child is encouraged by seeing their hard work be rewarded. Plus, as parents, it never hurts to see that reminder to tell our kids “good job”.
Make Chores Fun for Kids
We also try and make chores fun. We turn on the music and have a dance party while we clean. The best thing is laying the towels on the floor and dancing away on them to “skate” across the tile. A great way to pick up some of the dirt and polish the floors.
Sock Puppet Cleaning Parties
Another simple thing to do is have “sock puppet cleaning parties”. Grab those old socks, slip them over hands and have fun dusting. I always make it a game where we do a “sock puppet” routine as we clean together.
Preschool Chore Chart Printable
Print out this Preschool Chore Chart Printable and place it where everyone can see. The fridge, a command center, wherever it is easiest. Use stickers or a simple check off your child’s accomplishments.
We like to reward with a box full of a few things I’ve snagged from the dollar store. So long as she’s done the chores for the week and helped around the house, our daughter is able to pick something small at the end of the week.
Make sure when you print this, turn your printer setup to “landscape”. This will make for easy printing. Crop the bleed and either laminate or cut down to put in a frame. You can use an erasable marker to check off chores.
