garage kids chores
Below I've listed examples of garage kids chores that they can generally do by certain ages. Your child may be capable of doing a chore sooner or later, depending on her level of concentration, fine-motor skills, or maturity.
Once a child reaches a certain skill or age level, he can generally do the chores for his age group and those for the age groups below. However, you'll want to be there the first time your child tackles a new task, regardless of age.
Of course, some of these chores need to be done each day, others once a week, and still others once a month or even less frequently. Use your best judgment for what gets done when.
