They need to know that running a household takes work and they need to be a part of that! It helps teach them about hard work and helps to build character! Every Monday for a few weeks I will have a new chore list up for different ages.
They can also do:
Make Simple Meals (your children can make simple breakfasts and lunches easy)
Take Garbage Out/Bring Cans In
Wash/Dry and Put Away Dishes
Help Bring in the Groceries/Put Them Away
I would love it if you would add it to the list. What chores do you have your 9-12 yr old do?
