My son is of a certain age where he understands that he can earn money by doing his daily chores. Then, when he has enough money he can buy that special toy he’s been eyeing! I searched high and low for the perfect chore chart, and I found just the one!
I got this great idea from Megan over at IHeartOrganizing! The tutorial even includes the magnet printables ❤ It looks pretty awesome, and it’s easy for a 4 year old to understand. Plus, he loves putting the magnet on every chore he finishes!
It’s a weekly magnetic chore chart, with colourful chore magnets to keep track of what has been completed and what is yet to be done. Then at the end of the week we count the number of chores he did, and we give him around 0.10c/magnet. This chore chart has been so effective and it motivates my son to do as many chores as he can in a day just so he can move the magnetic magnets! And he’s also starting to understand the days of the week versus the weekend! And as he grows, I’ll just add to the chart!
I suggest giving this project a try if you want your kids to feel motivated to do things around the house. It’s been such a great addition to our routine, I’m sure it will be for you too!
