Parenting is hard work! Getting kids to help do chores is one of those tasks that feels like a constant uphill battle. No matter how old your kids are, there are chores that are appropriate for their age. This Printable Chore List for Kids by Age breaks the tasks down into five age groups:
- Toddlers (Ages 2-3)
- Preschoolers (Ages 4-5)
- Elementary Kids (Ages 6-8)
- Older Elementary Kids (Ages 9-11)
- Middle School Kids (Ages 12-14)
Each age group builds upon the one before it to add more chores that kids are able to do. As always, if you need to adjust your child’s chores for their level, feel free to do so. This is just a good, printable guide that you can hang on the refrigerator for reference.
