Although I don’t have children myself yet, I remember very well how my wonderful mom had her hands full with me and my two siblings. When you’re young and it comes to doing chores, you have the attention span of a goldfish – there’s always something soo much more important to do!
Like any mother, my mom got frustrated with asking us to do something over and over & soon came to the solution many other moms have reached: Chore Charts! It works like a bomb, especially if you incorporate the correct motivation. Although it might not get rid of the frustration completely, it’s a great way to keep track of what your child should be doing, it’s an awesome tool to teach young children responsibility & as an added bonus, you can use it to keep little busy bodies entertained during the holidays.
Over at Lieflingkind, we’ve created beautiful chore charts for you to download for free. In keeping with this month’s theme, these charts are decorated with colorful foxes. At A3 size, they’re big enough to look really important, but if you’d prefer them at a smaller size, they’ll resize beautifully to A4 also (simply fit to page when printing). Frame them or have them laminated & use washable marker so that you’ll be able to reuse over and over again.
