Summer is just around the corner, and Moms unite! How do you get your kids to take part in the household chores when school is out? I have learned that I have to have a plan of attack weeks before the final school bell rings. The last two years I have used a laminated card system, where the chores change daily. I have also instituted a rule of 1 Social, 1 Mental, and 1 Physical “Chore” required before you can be off to enjoy any screen time.
My kids, of course, hate this/love it, but I know my family needs order and routine in order for me to be a Nice Mom. We use the Norwex Kids Cloths, a set for each of our three kids, including the Enviro Cloth, Window Cloth and Dusting Mitt. I LOVE these Kids Norwex tools, because the Norwex Microfiber quality is the same as the regular Norwex microfiber. Give kids the ability to complete a job with great results and feel better knowing they can do it without scary chemicals. No excuses, everybody helps, and I can stay a Nice Mom.
Pinterest has so many awesome chore charts that are age appropriate. I have included one below that I liked, but of course adjust the chores to your child’s ability level as needed.
Do you have a system or schedule for Summer? I would love to hear it!
