kids chores seasonally by age


These kids chores seasonally are organized by age group. Keep in mind, however, that these age groupings are recommendations - and just that. 

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 an individual skill or age level, he can generally do the chores for his age group and those for the age groups below.

Getting kids to help with cleaning isn't easy, especially in the beginning. Besides, how much help can you realistically expect from a child? The answer depends on the child's age. 

However, you'll want to be there the first time your child tackles a new task, regardless of age. Beginners need pointers for even the most straightforward jobs. What's second nature to us is a unique experience for them. These kids chores seasonally by age can help get you started.
