Pre-K/Kindergarten age chore chart.

Tonight I decided to make my daughter (4.8 years old) a chore chart for the living room.  Since she can’t read yet I figured it would be more effective to use pictures instead of words.  My husband bought me a laminator for Christmas (which I hadn’t used yet) which I used to create this setup.  

So, how it works.  

Step 1: Olivia does her chores (in any order).  As she does each chore she crosses off the chore done for that day and chooses the correct plastic (well laminated paper coins) coin from the cup on the left.  She puts that coin in the cup on the right.  

Step 2: Olivia does each chore throughout the day until they are completed. 

Step 3: After all the chores are completed Olivia counts the coins and writes the total amount we owe her on the sheet on the right (she will need help with this part for awhile).

Step 4: After I get home from work I trade Olivia’s play coins out for real coins for her piggy bank.  Then the earned coins go back into the cup on the left.  

I’m excited to see how she does with this 🙂

  1. I really like this concept! I have thought about putting something like this together for my girl, she is almost 3. Whenever she helps me around the house, like with laundry or cleaning up toys, making her bed (the best she can) I give her a penny, but I really like your idea of the chart, and SUPER simple to make! Will be doing something similar!!!

    • So far it has worked very well! She kept going to the chart, excited about what she had to do next. She kept begging to put the silverware away (but we had to wait to put the dog in his crate because he will try to lick the clean dishes if the dishwasher is open) and to wash the dishes lol.
