Our kids went back to school this week & with it comes the routine.
Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean the kids are completely off the hook with chores.
Here are a few chores for kids that our kids actually love to help with.
3 Back To School Chores For Kids
Between homework & extracurriculars, there isn’t much time for chores for kids in our house during the week.
The trick is to get them to enjoy the chore, so they don’t realize they’re doing chores.
Then you get the chores done without having to listen to complaining or excuses.
If your kids don’t love to mop as much as ours, you don’t have this mop.
They have to take turns because they argue over who gets to mop spills from the floor.
Sometimes I swear they spill on purpose just so they can use the mop again.
Assigning lunchbox prep as one of the chores for kids is a HUGE win in our house for a few reasons.
Of course it’s a great chore for kids.
And yes, then I just have to supervise.
But, they’re much more likely to EAT what’s in their lunchbox (without complaints later) if they put it together on their own.
Have the kids pick from a list of options you approve of & let them have at it.
As long as you have that Libman mop nearby, they’ll be able to cleanup the floor afterwards too!
Getting organized is one thing but STAYING organized is the real problem.
My wife & 3 year-old came up with this solution to the girls’ hair accessories by hanging a shoe organizer inside a closet door.
Once a week the kids play a tidying up game where they run around the house collecting rogue hair bands & put everything away again.
This is the only way we’re able to get the kids out the door on time during the week – because they know exactly where to find what they’re looking for.
