Modern Toddler Chore Chart.

Since I'm a list maker at heart, I love the idea of a chore chart to help keep children on track in regards to their daily chores. The problem? Charts can be tricky for the 4 and under crowd who are not yet reading but still want to feel like the big kids. I've used this chart in the past for my older children but it wasn't suitable for my little ones. 


My solution was creating a chart with Audrey (3) and Oliver (2) in mind. I kept with the same color scheme as the older children's chart but the daily tasks are more simple and are things I want them to get in the habit of doing on their own. They are: making their beds, getting dressed, clearing their dishes from the table, brushing their teeth and putting away toys. I realize that some of these tasks will require my help (brushing their teeth and helping Oliver get dressed) but for the most part, they are capable of accomplishing them with minimal parental interference.


Audrey + Oliver love adding stickers to the page when a task is complete. Another good alternative would be laminating the chart and using a dry erase marker to track progress.

I have high hopes this chart is going to help ease some of the morning rush chaos once school rolls around. Do you have toddlers in your home too? I turned our chore chart into a PDF printable just for you!

  2. What a nice treat to share a pdf version of this! This will be a great help to my three year old! I'm in the same boat! The older ones have more difficult chores and they can read what they are but Cali my three year old just runs around wondering what to do next. Thanks again and have a great weekend!

  11. Adorable, thanks for sharing! I made something similar for my 3 year old, I have it laminated, but can't trust him with dry erase markers near walls, yet. (per husband who spent a Sunday evening cleaning it up).
