Chore Ideas

Here are actual chores that we use in our home. We include very simple things and some tough jobs. Each child picks 3 chores on a school day (and extras if needed for discipline).
I hope they help you come up with more ideas!

For the 3 year old:

Find garbage to throw away. Any garbage he finds is worthy of celebration.
Use a Lysol wipe to clean with. Again, anything he cleans is great!
Water the plants outside. I give him a water bottle use.
