Free Printable Chore Chart Template
We offer various chore chart templates that can be personalized, downloaded, and then printed. Select the template that will best suit your needs. Establish your chore list and add it to the chore chart. All the templates can be personalized with your own chore list. Some are in Word format, and others can be edited with our free online chore chart maker. There is also space to add a picture or photo. When making a chore chart for kids, you can either add a photo of the child or maybe a photo of the reward to keep the child motivated. For example, if you have promised your child to take her to the zoo if she does all of her chores you could put a photo of her favorite animal on the chore chart to remind her what she is working towards. You can also add photos of the tasks if your child cannot read.

Why Use Kids’ Chore Charts?
Getting kids to do chores around the house not only helps you but also helps them acquire valuable skills that they will need later on in life. The later you start with chores the more difficult it will be for your child. On the other hand, younger kids cannot handle responsibility so you have to start very slowly. Make sure that you designate chores according to the child’s age and capability. From age 2 kids can start tidying their toys and putting away their books. Start working together with your child until they are adept at during their chores on their own. Certain chores can be considered “paid chores”. This will help your kids learn to save, budget and give them a sense of independence. Make chores fun with our free chore charts for kids.
