Update to the Kids Chore Chart System

kids chore chart

August 2015 ~ We did a post back in 2013 on a Chore Chart  system for kids
that had a little twist to it.  It had a Work for Hire element
added to it.

This system is great to ‘dangle the carrot’ so to speak to entice kids to do
more ‘grown up’ things around the house, and the great part is they get
paid for each chore individually and they are totally optional!

Well we have gotten SO MUCH feedback on our chore chart and so many
requests for a printable Pdf, which I didn’t anticipate, and didn’t do upfront.
So I humbly apologize for that.  But in all honesty I really didn’t expect this
to go as viral as it did.

But now … I’m happy to say we have updated our Chore Chart system and
now have a PDF you can download.

If you’d like to order the PDF, just scroll to the bottom to download it unlimitedly
and here is the original post that has created so much buzz ~ !!


If you’d like to implement this system in your house, it’s easy!!

I promise you …my kids LOVE this system because there is no pressure and if they need extra money for the weekend or something they want, this system empowers them to get it themselves!

I am so happy to say that our Work for Hire Chore Chart system has gone viral with over 100,000 pins, shares and likes on social media!

You can now download the Work for Hire Chart and implement it today in your own house!  It’s been revised, enhanced and is broken down by age group!

I really enjoy using this system, even as my kids get older, and I think you will too.  Please let me know your thoughts and comments!

 AGES 3-5

This chore chart is perfect for ages 3-5 where they are very happy to ‘help’.  Why not take all the enthusiasm to help Mom and create a chart that they can pick the chores they have confidence in completing.  Money doesn’t necessarily have to be an option here as they are still so young.  It could be another special treat instead.

The 2nd page is left blank for you to fill in jobs you think your kids will excel at.

Ages 6-8

These chores are perfect for older kids who are capable of completing tasks unsupervised.  They are at the age where they are starting to understand the concept of money and a little pocket money gives them a little more independence in their buying power.

Ages 9-11

These chores are geared more toward middle schoolers as they are able to work independently at this stage.  Again, Work For Hire Chores should be offered only AFTER all their other chores are completed.  Kids at this age are now interested in obtaining their own things with their own money.

  1. Hi Debi,
    It appears that someone had taken your idea and made it their own and is selling it for $10. If you’d like more info on this please let me know. You’ve obviously had this going for awhile and this other lady just posted this year the same product.

  2. I was just wondering when purchasing the chore charts what am I getting exactly? I have 2 daughters their ages are 6 and almost 9. If you can please explain what I would be buying that would be great. Thank you so much. Meagan!

    • HI Meagan,
      I just updated the chore charts to be broken down into age groups. 3-5, 6-8 and 9-11. You will get the Work for Hire printables with the download. I suggest using the thickest paper you have or after printing them you can attach them to cardstock or even run them through a laminator. I hope you like them! 😀
