    Thanks Crystal, it’s a great chart! My kids do most of the choirs listed for their ages.

    I had to laugh though when I read under 6-7 years old “put the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer”. I can see it now, even with a chair to help her my petite 6 year old would probably fall into the washer.

    Thank you for posting this, my husband and I were just talking about this last night; how it is really time for our kids to start doing more for themselves, and our family. I’ve come to realize that it’s my own hold-ups that have prevented us (me) from doing this before. I am somewhat of a perfectionist and often do things myself because I think there is a certain way things should be, or need to be, done. Time for this mama to just “let it go.”

    Great list! My 10 year old starting mowing a neighbor’s lawn for pay last summer – wonderful learning experience for him (and me) all around. Unfortunately, we have now moved, so he won’t have that job again this summer. Maybe we will decide to pay him to do ours… And my 8 year old is learning to do laundry which is not only a great learning experience for her, but also super helpful for me!!

    I have such a hard time staying consistent with chores for my kids. I had this whole chore system and it worked, but then we got lazy. I might have to print this chart out and try it out to remind myself my kids ARE capable! Thanks! 🙂
