As a mom, I thrive on having to-do lists and checklists every day. When you throw in a new season, putting a house on the market, or kids changing bedrooms, I have to have a plan of action on paper or I will never get everything done.
Free Kid’s Chore Checklist
This checklist is just the right size for the little hands that will be helping you get your spring cleaning done. I’ve included one page with my kids favorite (and not so favorite) chores, each chore has a check box next to it for them to use when they’ve accomplished a task. Kids thrive on structure and are typically visual, so them having a list to see what they need to do and how far they’ve come along is a great way to keep them involved and motivated.
When my kids have completed the chores I ask them to, I try to have some fun with them before moving onto the next one. We stop and play a card game, read a book or watch a movie together. This break in between helps them not to get burnt out on helping complete the daily chores.
I hope that the two sets of checklists that I’ve created and shared here will help you in your homemaking and spring cleaning!
