With school just around the corner for us, I’ve had many friends ask me about my daily chore charts for kids. I’ve been using chore charts for several years, and when my kids know the expectations, it makes mornings so much easier to get out of the door on time, with much less yelling.
So I thought I would share what I have used in the past and what I am using now for my kids morning routines.
When my oldest 2 kids were in preschool/kindergarten, I started using the “Morning High 5”. I got this idea off of Pinterest, and I wish I knew who originally created it so I could credit them.
Morning High 5
Instead of having to remind my kids fifty thousand times to get dressed and do all the things, I could just say “Morning High 5”! and they would know what to do.
For younger kids you could use pictures to help with this.
My Morning Routine
I created this morning routine chart that we used for a short while. You can grab the free printable here.
Daily Chore Chart for Kids
This year I printed this Daily Chore Chart from Felicia at Go Grow Go. We’ve only been using it for about a week, but so far it has been great at reminding the kids what they need to do. I love that it has a section for daily chores, as well as weekly chores, so I could combine two charts into one.
After School Rules
Last year we instilled some rules and expectations for our kids before they were allowed to go on electronics after school. So when I found this list of After School Rules from Mique at Thirty Handmade Days, I was ecstatic! It is exactly what I was looking for to make our afternoons a little easier, and s
top minimize the constant whining for screen time.
So that’s it for the chore charts that we have used. I hope they help you in creating some good routines, and teaching your kids some responsibility!
