Daily Chore Chart – Beta Version

I never expected to create anything, myself, that could be called “beta”, but here it is. I’ve been inspired by suggestion and personal need to create a chore chart for you all. I plan to share some more details when things are finished, but today I wanted to introduce you to my latest project. A work in progress, if you will. It’s one of those big projects, so I thought I’d introduce the first little part to you in “Beta”. I’d love it if you’d download it and give it a try!

For a while now I’ve been using this chore chart with my children (though I’m not great with being consistent!) and when we use it, things run so much more smoothly! The only real change I made to it was to dress it up and add my signature cuteness to it. This is the fall version. It makes our chore time so much more fun! I hope you will take the opportunity to try it out and let me know how it all works.

Page 2 has the weekly, monthly, and quarterly chores on it. Both pages are available as PDFs with editable forms. You can type your own chores into the lists and print them out. That’s the part I would love the most input on for those of you who are willing. Sometime this month I’m hoping to have the designs finished and to list them in my Etsy shop, but for now I have some time for feedback.

These are different than other forms I’ve seen online. I put all the different jobs I want my kids and me to do each day (or at least most every day) on the daily chores page. Then, during chore time, the kids come over and pick what job they want to do, put their initial in the box for that day and run off to do it. Some of the jobs are longer, others shorter. Some are better for the older kids and some for the younger. If we finish all the chores that day, then we try to do a few of the weekly jobs. If some get missed, we pick those up first thing tomorrow.

This system has worked so great for us for a few reasons. First of all, I’m not consistent and this allows for missed days or slow days. Second, I don’t love doing the same things every day and this list allows the kids to switch it up each day as they want to. Also, it encourages them to come pick their job quickly and get started before someone else gets the job they want. 🙂

I’m sure I haven’t done a perfect job explaining this. I plan to write up a full post when I go live with the completed product. For now, please leave any questions in the comments and I’d love to answer them. 🙂 I’d also love any feedback on how to make this easier to use and what you think of it!

Oh… one more thing! This system is great for a large family such as mine, but I think it would work great for any sized family!
