Most days it seems like my kids know what their household responsibilities are, but they have the attention span of a goldfish, so they get sidetracked after just a couple of tasks.
I’ve bought chore charts at the store before, but they don’t always align with our family’s tasks, so I decided DIY is the way to go. It’s so nice to be able to customize these fun chore charts, and give them a visual of what needs done! I like to add a few easy peasy tasks (like, “Say I love you to someone!”), to give some encouragement on getting things checked off.
Here are a few of the cutest DIY chore charts floating around the web…
1. Hot Wheels Chore Chart
2. Chore Sticks
This simple, compact system is super easy to customize. Get the instructions HERE.
3. Clothespin Chore Chart
Love this Clothespin Chore Chart! My kids use a similar system at school.
4. “Mom, I Need Money” Job Chart
When my kids want to earn a little extra cash, I always offer “big” chores- things they don’t normally do, (AKA- Things *I* don’t want to do 😉 ). This awesome envelope system gives a great visual of options. Get the instructions HERE.
5. Cookie Sheet Chore Charts
This is a great project to make with some old cookie sheets. Get the instructions HERE.
6. “Work for Hire” Chore Chart

This Ice Cream Cone Chore Chart is so stinking cute! If you’re not into sewing, I bet you can make a printable version to laminate, and then use Velcro or magnets to stack them.
