Weekly Chore Chart for Kids

This is a simple list of items in a weekly chore chart for elementary school aged children.

Using a chore chart is a great way to help your children learn about responsibility and create good habits.

Your kids will know what they need to do at a glance. They can also see what will have to be done in the future helping with planning and time management.

How the Chore Chart Works

  • Uses AM and PM time frames to designate chore times.
  • “Bonus Chore” could be anything out of the ordinary or an increase in level of difficulty with an additional reward attached.
  • The "Other" section is for you to add additional items that suit your family situation. It could be something like wrapping presents for a birthday or painting Easter eggs.

The way this chart is organized can give you a different angle on designating tasks that is creative, easily explainable and a fun learning tool.

How to Use the Chore Chart

  • Print the chore chart out.
  • Hang it on the refrigerator or pin it to a bulletin board.
  • The kids check off each item when they are done.

Take the kids out for ice cream or pizza to celebrate the completion the chores during the week.
