I talked last week’s how chores are such an important part of family life and gave you a chore list for the toddlers/preschoolers in your life. They need to know that running a household takes work and they need to be a part of that! It helps teach them about hard work and helps to build character! Every Monday for a few weeks I will have a new chore list up for different ages. At the end of the series I will add a free printable you can print out with each age group on it!
Of course your children 6-8yrs old can do any of the chores mentioned in the previous list for the toddler/preschooler!
They can also do:
Meal Preparation – They can wash off veggies and fruit/ help you stir (If you are there of course), and get ingredients together.
Wipe Down- They can wipe down the outside of the toilet, the sinks, and counter tops. (Some may need a child stool)
Collect Garbage (this really helps me on garbage take out days)
Rake Leaves or Sweep Walkway
Pick up their Rooms
Help with Care of Baby (like making bottles and getting diapers)
Help Clean up the Yard
I would love if you would add to the list. What chores do you have your 6-8 yr old do? I will add them to the printable at the end!
