Chores For Little Children

Posted By Smockity Frocks On May 29, 2011 @ 9:54 pm In Parenting | 24 Comments


I was recently asked about what kind of chores are appropriate for little children.

Here is a list of chores I have used for the 5 and under crowd:

  • Put away silverware. This is a great sorting activity. I take the basket out of the dishwasher and the silverware tray out of the drawer and set them both on the table.
  • Replace trash bag after trash has been taken out. They love to shake and snap the bag!
  • Wipe chair legs and table legs with a damp rag.
  • Pass out napkins when table is being set.
  • Feed the kitty.
  • Sweep under the table with a mini dust broom [2]. The little broom and dust pan are just the right size for little hands.
  • Wipe out the bathroom sink. I spray and they scrub.

What chores do you assign for little children?
