Summer Chores for Norwex Families

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!
