chore chart

I blogged about our chore charts last year. I found the chart at the now defunct ModEcoKids.com. Back in December, I updated my original post with a note offering to email the chart to anyone interested. I have had so many requests for the document I decided to save myself some time and make it available for download. The document must be opened in Adobe Acrobat to type the name and chores. It is edit only though- you can't save the names and chores you type on the document.

download here

Tip: on the left side of the screen under google docs there are two tabs: FILE and VIEW. Click on file and then select "download original". It will then download to your computer and should open in reader automatically (if you have adobe reader already installed on your computer).


To reiterate: I am not the creator of this chore chart. The chart has worked really well for us so I want to share it. I am offering it here because it is no longer available anywhere else.

Can I just say how grateful I am!!!! I have been dying to have this and have spend so much time trying to recreate it!!!! I've even e-mailed them asking to send it to me to share with the blog world in need! SO SO SO grateful! I love it!

Vicky @ Pearl District said...

Wow! Thank you! I can't wait till my kids grow up and help me do the chores! lol

Rachel said...

Thank you for sharing this! It is so cute. I made one for my son to start working on. I just can't decide where to hang it. I'm afraid he might bump the wall with the dry erase marker. :)

How well does the chart work for your younger kids? Mine are 3-1/2. Ethne

PS - I am using your laundry detergent recipe and so far, so good.

Thank you for this chart! I am wondering if you can help me figure out how to open it in adobe? When I click download it immediately goes to google documents and then I can't fill in the names? Sorry, I am a little computer challenged.

What a sweet chore chart - thank you for sharing it!

Adrienne & Ryan said...

Please email me the chore chart and family rules doc for editing (adrienne.bauer@gmail.com).

Would like your opinion on what age to start this chart with your children?

geniene simrak said...

First off, thank you for making this chart available! I love it! Secondly, I'm having some difficulty editing it. I tried saving it to my own Google Docs and I also saved it to my computer like you said. But I wasn't able to put in my sons' names or the chores themselves. When I saved it to Google Docs, I could put it in, but it was very small plain print and wouldn't edit the size or font. :( Any suggestions on this??

Thanks, again!

Katie @ Lady Bird said...

Thank you so much for posting this; I am very, very grateful! We will be starting them soon!

I love your blog:)

I love this idea instead of calling it a chore chart. We talk about these contributions we all make but it is great to have a way to display the follow through. Thanks for the great idea!

Laura said...

Thank you for sharing this! It's 10:30pm and I wanted to implement a chore system tomorrow but have been having issues with computer freezing up, and needing to plan it out some more. I found this document on your site, put in a few daily chores and then used the underscore key to make three blank lines for varied daily chores. (I will laminate it using our home laminator then use a dry erase marker to write them in) THANK YOU! I'll be bookmarking your site for future perusal. ;)

Becca said...

Thank you so much for sharing the chart. Do you have a template for your family rules? I think that is also so wonderful!

Ashley said...

I love this! I have been needing to put together an incentive chart for my 3-year-old but have been putting it off because I felt overwhelmed. I couldn't believe how easy it was to fill in the chart and push print. I framed it and we're going to use a dry-erase marker on the glass. Thanks so much for sharing. You relieved some of my stress tonight after a rough day. :)

Love the Chore Chart! My kids were just asking me to set up their chore chart for the summer. We do it every summer. The kids only get paid when they do their jobs. They also have to divide their earnings between spend, give, and save. I also love your house rules, and I would like to get a copy please! ackmoore@comcast.net. Thank you!
