Do Your Chores

Even though I'm used to having the kids around me all day due to homeschooling, the intense Arizona summer heat means that they're spending much more time indoors. In an effort to ensure that they don't drive me completely nuts {or spend every waking hour in front of the television} I'm re-evaluating how much cleaning they're capable of and am making new chore charts accordingly. These ones are simple, customizable, and pleasing to the eye. :)

I've loved your blog since your Christmas video, and it was a pleasant surprise to find this post while browing my blogs today. Glad you like my chore charts! :)

These do look great! I haven't broken down yet to get past the cleaning up toys and now clearing your dishes after meals, probably because my husband still needs to be reminded of this and his one chore of taking out the garbage. But with 5 people in this house I'm in need of something to help me survive! I wondered what you are finding out about which chores are appropriate for what age levels, any suggestions?! Also, we had a lesson last Sunday about tithing, and learning to serve cheerfully. One mom mentioned her challenge of getting her kids to not only do their chores but do them cheerfully and learn the value of hard work and happily doing it. So another mom said when her kids were younger they were expected to do chores and then slowly they added an allowance, not for doing the chores but for doing them happily and quickly without being asked, etc...I thought that was worth trying! Thanks!
