DIY Chore Charts

Attention Parents! Do you often have a hard time convincing your kids that chores can be fun? If so, consider taking on one of our easy DIY chore charts to get your kiddos more involved!

  • chore-chartThis chore chart can simply be made out of cookie sheets, paint, ribbon tape and magnets!
  1. First, you will want to spray paint your cookie sheets (the more colorful, the better)! Next, you will want to divide your sheet into two sections with the ribbon tape – for a do and a done section.
  2. To complete the project, cut scrapbook paper in squares big enough to write each chore. Add your magnets and once a chore is complete tell your little ones to move it to the done section! Also, adding homemade reward coupons (for example: you pick the movie for movie night, dessert for dinner, etc.) to each chore is a great way to encourage your kids to get their chores done.
  • jarOr, go green by making a fun chore jar from recycled popsicle sticks! All you need is popsicle sticks, markers and a jar or can. This chore jar is perfect for a family with multiple children considering each child can have their own color. Once the chore is completed, having another mason jar for completed chores is a good motivator!

Have any other successful ideas for getting your little ones involved in helping around? If so please share them with us in the comments below!
