Do your kids do chores? If so, what are they?
1. Cleaning the bedroom
The number 1 chore for kids is cleaning their bedrooms. A little bit of tidying up goes a long way! And it might not be perfect but it's a good start.
2. Feeding the pets
If your children are too small to feed the pets on their own, having them help you can be fun. Sure it may take a little longer, but oh well.
3. Helping in the kitchen
Having your kid help you prepare a couple of meals is the perfect way to get them interested in cooking. Plus it can be a bonding experience.
4. Household cleaning
When you have a big home, a few extra hands can go a long way. Get the kids to help out with the sweeping, polishing or mopping.
5. Making the bed
No child enjoys making their bed but it's a good way to teach your kids that they need to get out of bed in the morning with enough time to clean up after themselves.
6. Wash or dry up the dishes
Very few people enjoy cleaning after a meal, but get your children to help you and the chore will be done in no time.
7. Washing the car
When it's warm outside and the car needs a good wash, this is a fun way for the kids to earn a little pocket money.
8. Setting the table
Your child might not be old enough to cook a meal but setting the table before supper is a simple way for them to help. Just watch out for those knives and forks, kids!
9. Clean the bathroom
It's a great idea to get your kid to clean out the bath or wipe down the basin after it's been used. Learning good habits from a young age is key.
Whether it's helping to sort the laundry before washing or a teen doing a load of dirty clothing, laundry is a simple chore for a child of any age.
