Years ago I was trying to find some easy way to assign chores to my three children. I came up with the following idea:
Most days I do not give them 5 chores. It will usually depend on the state of my house and how long it has been since those things have been done. I used to try to give age-appropriate chores to Paige when she was younger, but she is capable of doing all of the chores now. I need to buy new tags so that I can update the chores and add new ones since the kids are older than when I started this. They can now do things like load the dishwasher or clean the inside of the refrigerator.
Some days I let the kids pick their own chores, within reason. They even like to switch chores sometimes, which I will let them do from time to time. So long as it gets done, I don't usually care who does it. I have been quite lazy lately with giving them any chores besides unloading the dishwasher and gathering the garbage. Maybe this will be the impetus I need to get them busy again.
I had a friend tell me I should sell these. That is a great idea, but I am giving away all my secrets here on my blog. However, if you would like me to make you one, I can do that. Just let me know.
