chore chart

Posted: 03/03/2009 in family, lizzie faith

you are thinking, “she’s thinking about a chore chart!?”


yeppers, i am! 

i was snooping around simplemom this morning and i liked the one she had made. although i haven’t done anymore looking, so not sure if this one is anything grand or not. but i like it. 

lizzie faith is a super big helper. everyday she helps me unload the dishwasher and put dishes away. if the dish/pan is on her level she puts it away herself (i didn’t not teach her this, she just started doing it a few months ago) and if she can’t reach it’s intended destination she hands it to me. it’s a big help. i stay by the cupboards and she is my runner to the dishwasher and back! 🙂 

she helps me put the wet washed cloths in the dryer and also pulls them out of the dryer and puts them in a basket. 

she folds laundry (rolls it up into a ball or tube and hands to be me the BIGGEST smile!) .  she also puts away all the cloths at her level (socks, undies…) 

she folds wipes and hands them to me to place in the diapers when i fold them and also helps me put them away. 

we need to do better in one particular area and that’s picking up toys!!!!! she’s young, i know – but why not start now (especially since she has it memorized where stuff goes in the kitchen!!!), maybe it will make it easier when she’s two!!! 

i think we can handle a chore chart!

    Yep, picking up toys is the most important one! 🙂 Kiana has been doing this for quite awhile. A tip that has worked with all my kids–make it fun and about putting it ‘in’. That’s what we do–when they’re not even quite a year old, I sit on the floor with them and we talk about putting the horse in and the cow in and the dog in. . .they’re learning two things–the concept of ‘in’ and how to pick up. (Not to mention they love to do whatever mommy is doing! grin) Good job having fun with your little one. It’s just about the daily life and sharing it with them, isn’t it?!

    i think grace was about your daughters age when we started working with her on picking up toys. we would give her one toy at a time and have her toss it in the appropriate bucket. she thought we were playing! now she treats putting toys away as the same thing! i love chore charts!! now if i only had children to assign these to…hmmm 🙂

    I’ve found that the virtual chore chart works for me. I use a site called Handipoints chore charts to make printables and it’s really been fun so far!
