You shouldn’t have to worry about keeping the home clean by yourself mama! Implement a cleaning system where everyone helps out.
Grab the free editable family chore chart to organize everyone’s tasks.
There’s so many chores that you can have your children help you with. You do not have to stress out about everyone’s mess if you can make the kids accountable for their own mess.
Get them in the habit of cleaning up after themselves. Put away toys that they are not using before they take out new ones.
Make a habit of cleaning up before you go play outside, then you get to come in to a clean play area.
Did you know they always do that in preschools? Our preschool had a song the teachers would play when it was clean up time, and I’ve never seen the kids get to work quicker.
That’s when I know my two year old was capable of cleaning up his toys.
Family Chores List
What you can have your child do should be based on their age. Older kids can take more responsibility and do things without your supervision while younger children can build up skills for the things they can do on their own.
- Sweeping the floor
- Clean up toys
- Pet care
- Set the table
- Clear the table
- Wiping down the table
- Take out the garbage
- Washing clothes
- Folding laundry
- Cutting vegetables
I love involving kids in cooking and baking because that is one task I can’t wait to offload to someone else. Plus it’s a good time spending it with your kids while teaching them a life skill.
