Sometimes getting the little ones to learn how to keep up with their things and cleaning up after themselves can be exhausting. When you have 4 kids running around, there will surely always be a mess in this small house. To help with the younger ones learning to keep up, I decided to create and share with you a free Printable Chore Chart.
While we have a small house, we always have a lot of people in this small house, and that can turn messy fast. While I like to think I can do it all, I am also a fan of reality and know that I CANNOT do it all. It’s impossible to keep up with everything and everyone, and introducing chores to the little ones will help with that stress of constant cleaning.

What are the most important chores for the children to do? For my oldest, I can just about expect anything, but for the little ones, I have to keep things easy and simple. Not only do I want them to learn to clean up, but I want to make it easy so they also get a sense of accomplishment out of it.
With this printable chore chart, you can fill in the chores for each kiddo and display the results with a check or little star stickers. Choose a reward, and watch them go after those chores!
When I was younger I never had a chore chart, but I was also one of those children that liked to keep things clean. (I know, a little OCD even back then.) However, that little trait not only missed my husband, but my kids as well. With that being said, chore charts are a must in my house if I expect to be able to see the carpet.
My main focus for the kiddos are to help them understand to keep their rooms clean, their bathroom clean, the living room free of toys, and make beds in the morning before getting dressed (which will take some time, but hopefully before they are in high school.)
Starting with a cute little chart and going from there will be such a huge help to me, and also teach them early to clean up. Make sure you grab this free printable chore chart and see what happens in your house!
