Chore Chart

Chore Chart craft

Made a bright and bold chart to help keep your family chores organized!

  • 1.

    Make a list of daily chores for your family. At the top of a large piece of poster board, write "Job Chart" with Crayola® Washable Markers. Underneath the title, use a ruler to draw horizontal lines across the entire paper, spaced evenly. Draw as many lines as you have chores, leaving about a hand width of space at the bottom of the chart.

  • 2.

    Draw the first vertical line about one hand width from the left margin. Label the left column "Chores To Do."

  • 3.

    Evenly divide the remaining space with vertical lines to create columns for the 7 days of the week. Write the first letter of the days at the top of these columns.

  • 4.

    Under the "Chores To Do" column, write and illustrate a task in each grid using Crayola® Crayons or markers.

  • 5.

    On construction paper, draw symbols (such as stars) to glue on the chart when a chore is completed. Use different symbols for each family member, or write names on the symbols to show who did what job. Cut symbols out with Crayola Scissors.

  • 6.

    On the back of an envelope, draw a symbol key. With Crayola School Glue, attach the envelope to the bottom of the chart. Put in the symbols.

  • 7.

    Ask an adult to use cut a slit in the poster board to hold a Crayola Glue Stick. Insert the glue stick. Hang up your chart and start filling it.
