There’s probably no perfect plan for getting kids to do chores because there’s no perfect kid (or parent!). But having some sort of system for chores is a step in the right direction, and charts can help keep things organized and even make it fun.
Printable chore charts:
Easy way to get started: print this free pdf chore chart
This printable is editable, so you can make it work for any age.
Cute graphics make this one preschool-friendly, no reading required. You can use these charts as is, or customize as much as you want.
Eight different adorable designs to chose from in this printable! I love her idea of laminating and adding magnets to the back so it can reside on the fridge.
Fun ideas for DIY chore charts:
It’s a bit more involved to make this one but the results are so doggone cute! I mean, it’s an ice cream cone; what could be more fun than that?
Easy to make and reusable. You could use one of the printables above to put in it. Easy peasy!

If you choose to pay for some of the household chores, try this idea of using a cork board to organize and present the chores for hire. Printables included in the post.

Another great idea for a chore chart, and it’s completely and easily update-able by simply moving the chore magnets from their home to each child’s board. She shares her list of chore ideas, too.
No matter how great your chore chart or system, it won’t do any good without assigning specific chores! This printable gives good ideas as a starting point.
