yearly kids chores by age

Which yearly kids chores can kids help out with, given his or her age?

Your family's annual household chores list is sure to be very different from my family's list. 

Your list will differ depending on so many factors, such as how many kids you have and how old they are, the layout of your home, whether or not you have pets, where you live, and how much (or how little) your family is home. 

To give you a guide to create your own yearly kids chore list, I'll offer you mine. I've listed appropriate house chore by age below.
