Plus, sharing household responsibilities is going to make your life much easier.
And the first step in getting your kids to do chores is to set clear expectations–to make sure your child knows what they need to do. Which is why I created this free customizable chore chart that allows you to create a the perfect chore chart for your kid.
(To grab the free printable, you can scroll to the bottom.)
CUSTOMIZABLE CHORE CHART
This chore chart allows you to create a list of the weekly chores/tasks you want your child to complete and also track their progress over the week.
In observing my 4 kids, I’ve found that kids get a huge sense of accomplishment when they check stuff off of their to-do list.
Kids: they’re just like us!
On the chore chart printable, there’s space for:
- your child’s name
- the week
- 14 lines to put down chores/tasks
The download also includes 3 different color schemes so you can pick the one that best suits you. Or if you have multiple children, you can print out a different color chore chart pdf for each kid so it’s easy to tell them apart.
But if you’re like me, and you don’t have cute handwriting, check out the editable chore chart pdf that lets you type out your chore chart right in Adobe Reader.

HOW TO USE THE CHORE CHART TEMPLATE
While I love printables, I don’t like wasting paper and expensive printer ink printing off a million things.
So if you don’t want to print off a new chart every week you have a few options. If the weekly chores/routines don’t change, you can write in (or type in if you get the editable chore chart) and then either:
- Laminate the chart – OR –
- Place chart in picture frame
(If you’re wondering what chores to actually give your child, check out this age-by-age chore guide.)
Then you can just mark off each completed task with a dry erase marker. At the end of the week, you just wipe the chart clean!
