This chart will help you simplify chore assignments.
It is divided into 20 sections. Write in your family’s most frequent chores in these spaces. We provide a list of 60 ideas, and 56 cartoon illustrations that you can color, cut and glue next to each chore listing. This makes an attractive chart and will help your non-readers use the chart, too.
The right side of the chart can be left blank, or you can use it to write in wages if you choose to pay for chores. (We have seen many benefits in paying our children for at least some of their chores; we discuss this in the instructions.)
Movable name stickers allow you to easily assign different chores each day to each child.
Let one of your children practice his arithmetic while serving as "paymaster," totaling daily earnings, weekly totals and tithes, and counting out change to pay each person.
This is a simple, flexible and easy-to-use system.

I have four children aged 10 and under, and I've had this chart for about 4 years. It helps keep young ones focused on what needs to be done, and whether you pay for chores or not, this is a really helpful tool. Definitely a goodie!
