A chore chart is a thing that may help you divide all the housework in your family and give responsibilities to your kids in a more or less equal way. There are many ideas to realize, from the easiest printables to various creative ideas with ice cream cones and clothespins that will excite your children. I’m ready to share a whole bunch with you, let’s get started!
The first craft for today is a cool IKEA hack, it’s made of magnetic boards, a cork board and some magnets. Get some magnetic boards at IKEA and use printables from the tutorial to make cool lists to do. There’s a boy and a girl version – in pink and blue for fun!
This chart isn’t actually a chart: it’s made of a blue ladder, some boxes and clipboards. There are names of each kid on the ladder, they are made of chalkboards. Here you’ll find some family rules, too but you may limit the piece only to the things to do and those that are already done.
This chore system will work for kids for sure! It’s very easy, all you need is some craft sticks and mason jars – the first are needed for writing chores, and the second ones are necessary for kids’ names. Decorate them as you like or let your kids do that and then they will put chore sticks into their jars as soon as they do something. Easy-peasy!
This job chart is about earning some pocket money. It’s made of a frame and some colorful envelopes, inside which your kids will find some money. Each envelope contains things to do on it and an amount of money the kid will get. Such an easy and fast craft!
I love this creative chore chart idea, looks so cute and sweet! The chart is made of cookie sheets, magnets and some decals. Each cookie sheet is for each kid, you should write the name on top and then hang it on the wall. Make magnets for the To Do part and Done part, too, and let your kids put them as soon as they do something.
This is the cutest chore chart I’ve ever seen! It’s a sundae ice cream chart for the smallest kids and it’s made of a magnet board and a sundae. There are several different ice cream-looking parts with various chores on them. The kid will attach as many as he or she has done to the ice cream cone.
A family photo and magnetic paper are all you need to make a cool family chore chart – adults included! Print the chosen family pic and then print some chores on magnetic paper to attach them over each person. So easy and won’t take much time!
This is one of the fastest chore charts to make – it’s a clothespin one! all you need is a piece of wood or plywood and some clothespins. Attach letters To Do and Done on different sides of the board and then make clothespins with chores. This is a nice idea for one kid or when it’s not important who has done the chores.
Turn a chore chart into a game! Make a couple of spinning wheels with chores and write down what marks on them mean. You may also go for a couple of chores or make as many as your kids need. Read how to make these cool wheels of cardboard or plywood and have fun making them!
Here’s another cookie sheet chore chart but it’s different. Print out the chore images and attach them to magnets, then divide the cookie sheet into To Do and Done. It’s a great idea for one kid, if you have more children, use more cookie sheets naming each of them.
If chores seem a burden, some creative ideas are right what you need. This is a dice chore chart – such gaming style is a nice idea for both kids and adults. All you need is to get some dices and attach names or images with chores to their sides. Now roll the dice!
Magnetic chore charts are real leaders because they are super easy to make and are comfy in using. All you need is a magnetic board (or you can turn your fridge into one) and some magnets to which you will attach images with chores. So easy and so cute!
This easy chore chart involves only working with cardboard. Make a table with names and images of the chores placed in one line and hang it on the wall, and the word ‘Done’ should be written on the back of each chore. When your kids or you fulfill something, you can just fold the paper to keep it done.
What can be easier in using than a chalkboard? Making a chalkboard chore chart is easy-peasy: just make as many chalkboards as you need and then chalk charts on them using images or words. Name each chalkboard after your kid and let them chalk when something is done. Fun and creative!
Here’s one more idea to teach your kids earning money. How? Make a ring with chores, and each leaf on it with contain a chore and an amount of money to pay after it. When your child fulfills the chore, he or she can come to you with these leaves and get the money. Cute and fun, and your kids can make these leaves themselves.
If you have a magnetic key holder at hand, you may use it as a chore chart. Attach tables with things to do to the holder instead of keys and don’t forget the pens to mark the things done. It’s suitable not only for kids but also for adults.
Here’s another ice cream cone chart but it’s a bit more original than the previous ice cream cone chart because here the parts are embroidered, so they look even more natural. Make them colorful and fun, so that your kids wanted to fulfill all the things stated.
Get some clipboards and Velcro to make these simple and cute chore charts! Each clipboard will be for each family member, divide them into two parts: To Do and Done. Make cool images and letters to name each chore and attach them to Velcro spots in both parts. Voila!
This cool and creative chore chart is a great idea to try, and it will definitely attract your kids’ attention. The chores are done with photos, which makes them more noticeable and when done, the chores can be placed into a little box ‘All Done’. The board itself can be of cardboard, wood, plywood or cork.
