List of PDF Free Printable Chore Charts

Do you need help keeping track of whether you or your family members have completed their daily and weekly chores?

Below you’ll find several chore charts that you can use. They have different designs.

Just find the look and style that you want then click on the picture of the chore chart and it’ll open up the PDF version in a new browser window. From there you can print off however many copies you need.

Some parents use these as a reward chart for their older children. For instance, they may only get their allowance if they complete their designated household chores.

Or younger kids may get a treat like some ice cream at the end of the week if they do all their daily tasks.

But it is up to you how you want to use these printable charts. I just hope it helps your family.

If they have never used a chore chart before, it may seem “weird” to older kids, but soon it’ll become part of their daily routine.

They may even come to like tracking their chores and feel a fulfilling sense of responsibility.

A lot of adults like chores charts because they’re like a daily to-do list for household tasks.

Just writing the tasks down and creating a chore system for themselves can help them stay on top of things.

Doing the small chores daily can help prevent your house from becoming an “overwhelming” disaster.

Then instead of having to dedicate an entire weekend to tidying up, you’ll only have to do your small amount of morning chores to keep ahead of the game.

So go ahead and grab your own chore chart today and stay ahead of the mess.

What about a reusable responsibility chart for kids?

If you’d rather not print out sheets of paper, you can get magnetic responsibility charts for young children made by “Melissa and Doug.” (See it in the picture below.)

Make your own reusable daily chore chart

Once inside the plastic protector you can use dry erase markers to put a check mark next to the completed tasks.

Why might you want a chore chart? (hint: develop self-discipline)

I’m reading a book right now titled, “No Excuses: The Power of Self-Discipline” by author Brian Tracy.

In the book he highlights the importance of self-discipline in a person’s success. The ability to stay disciplined and focus on your goals and working towards them is a big determinant in success.

Doing something that you have to do, repeatedly – even when you don’t want to do it – will help build self-discipline, and this discipline will help “…resist the lure of excuses.”

If you want to learn more – and are tired of making excuses – I suggest you check it out. Your local library or bookstore may have it, but if not here is a link to it on Amazon.

Plus, splitting up the household duties among family members can ensure that you can keep your sanity and reclaim your time.

What chores to add to the weekly chore lists?

The chores that you add to your weekly chore chart will depend on your personal circumstances.

Just remember to delegate age-appropriate chores to your children. And you know you children best. Some kids are more responsible than others and be given more complex tasks.

But err on the side of caution especially if it comes to lifting heavy objects or needing cleaning supplies.
