Preschool Chore Charts

NOTE: The preschool chore charts have been updated! You can see the new version with updated clip art and additional chore cards here. Feel free to read the post below too!

 

Our chore charts for the older kids are working well, but since Kaleb can’t read yet I made his a little more ‘preschool’ friendly and used picture cards to help him see what he needed to do. The cards are the same size as my workbox activity cards, so if you want to mix and match those cards with this grid, they will work together.

Kaleb’s chore chart is broken up into three parts: morning chores, afternoon chores and chores to earn money. He earns minimal money, but we’re working on starting early with the giving, saving, spending concept. The boy gets excited with pennies…so it’s all good! :)

The chart is laminated and there are velcro dots in each of the squares below. This chart is also the same size as his daily workbox grid and is on a jump/key ring along with his workbox cards. Each of his chore cards attach with the velcro.


I do have to re-stock his chore chart every morning and for now we are just pulling off the cards when he completes his chores {until I come up with a better plan. I am keeping track of the chores he has earned by writing on the back of the chart with a Sharpie and erasing it weekly.

We are keeping it pretty simple for his ‘chores’. Here’s a peek at some of the things that we have on his chore chart. Some of the chores rotate throughout the week, but there are several that are consistent on a daily basis.

Kaleb’s daily chores: make bed, clean room, brush teeth, pick-up clothes, pick up shoes/hang up jacket, set table, wash table, devotions.

Kaleb’s extra {paid} chores: trash, vacuum, laundry, wash windows, dust, sweep, water plants, weed garden.

He loves helping wash dishes….

You can download a copy of the preschool chore charts by either clicking the thumbnail picture or on this link. The chore chart file has five different colored charts: blue, green, pink, purple and white {so you can print on colored cardstock if you would like} and also includes chore cards. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

In case you missed them before, you can also download a copy of our Chore Chart Printables for our older kids and see how we’re implementing that system in our house. There may also be extra cards for you to use in the workbox activity cards that I also posted earlier.

Hope this helps you out!
