Little Buddy is 18 months old and is capable of doing many things. The main chore he does every day is clean up his toys when he is done playing. Several times a day both of my kids pick up all their toys before moving on to another activity.
There are lots of other chores he does every day. I usually just ask him to help out as the rest of us are working. He loves to help. It is so sweet to see him walk around saying, “helps, helps!”
Here are a few of the things that I ask him to do throughout the day…
Put his PJ’s in the laundry basket
Help put clothes in the dryer
Put his cup in the fridge
“Sweep” the floor
Help his sister set the table
Having your toddler do these “chores” might not really help you much now but it does start teaching him that helping mommy and doing chores are important. That will help you out A LOT later!
Now that Sweet Angel is 3 she does many more chores. Here is a list of her chores (not all of them are done daily) …
Get ready (brush teeth, get dressed, put away PJ's)
Put away her clean laundry
Put away toys
Set the table
Clear the table
Put dishes in dishwaser
Do your children do chores? Are any of them different from what I have listed?
Come back tomorrow I will share a fun chore chart that your child can make!
