GON Organizing for Kids
Organizing for Kids Here’s a Fun Way to Get the Kids to Do Their Chores I’ve found that kids who are able to choose their chores themselves, and are able to do so in a fun way, are more motivated about completing them. Get two mason jars. Label one “Chores,” and the other “Done.” Write each chore (age appropriate and fairly easy to accomplish in 10 minutes or so) on popsicle sticks…one chore on each stick. Add additional sticks like, ‘Trade a Chore,’ ‘Pick Again’, ‘No Chores Today’ etc. just for fun. Each day, have your child choose a stick or two out of the Chores jar, and when the chore is completed, he or she puts that stick in the Done jar. Of course, chores should be completed before certain activities, like video games, playing with friends, etc. Your child keeps going each day, until the Chores jar is empty and all the sticks are in the Done jar. Then the system is repeated the following week. You can even attach mini rewards to each Done stick if you’d like!
