This age appropriate chores list has been highly requested since I wrote “How to get kids to do chores.” This is just a guideline, and every household and every child are different! However, this is a great starting point to figuring out age appropriate chores for kids.
My daughter was able to do most chores at a much younger age than either of my sons. My youngest is no where near where either of his siblings were at his age. You know your child best, and you will be able to figure out what they’re ready for. If they’ve never done a chore in their life, don’t expect them to pick up and do everything perfectly from the start. This is why it’s so important to start early! If you haven’t, that’s okay too, just start slowly wherever you’re at.
I created a free printable of this list, along with a free chore chart that can be customized for your child! Make sure to read to the bottom of the page, so that you don’t miss it!
