Chore Charts

Since being "Mortified", we have been making changes around our house hold to keep up on cleaning duties! I am happy to report that the chore charts for my four kids have been somewhat effective as a motivator in getting them accountable and responsible for doing their part (except for my 4 year old, Joe, who thinks the goal of his chore charts to put his stickers any old place he chooses)...

There are a variety of categories included and for each task accomplished, the child earns a sticker. By the end of the week, a minimum of 20 stickers for older kids (10 stickers for younger kids) must be achieved in order to earn their allowance ($10.00 for two older kids- 2 top level charts; $5.00 for two younger kids- 2 lower level charts) Good behavior/attitude is also considered in these chore charts for earning stickers. Getting and KEEPING this house cleaned up is an ongoing process; doing it as a team is definitely the way to go!

I've found that the virtual chore chart works for me. I use a site called Handipoints chore charts to make printables and it's really been fun so far!
