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.

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?

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!

Thanks for this post. I love it and appreciate you sharing it. We will be starting this soon. I was able to download but unable to modify it to write my kiddoes name and add a few more chores and family rules. I shall email you and would appreciate it if you could email it to me too. Thanks. I love your blog:)
