Yearly Chore Calendar

I love this setup for chores that you want to do once every few months like clean your car, or clean ceiling fans, etc.

Yearly Chore calendarPin

This layout is great for monthly challenges. For example, in January you might decide to tidy for 10 minutes a day. In February you can clean for 10 minutes a day. In March you might tackle one small area each day. The idea is to have monthly challenges and to get your entire home clean and organized within one year. Hopefully, some of the challenges will become habit and the upkeep will be a breeze.

Yearly Chore ListPin

Add a color code for chores. Draw the key in the space on the left side.

You can also create a chore schedule with one of our editable blank calendar templates.

Benefits of Chores

Chores teach kids responsibility. When kids do chores they feel responsible, independent, and contribute to the household.
Chores teach kids what it takes to run a home. Our job is to give them the tools they will need later on in life and that includes basic household chores that they will have to do. When they learn how to do these things before they leave home they will be ready to live an independent life when the time comes.

Chores teach kids time management skills. They learn how to prioritize and get things done even when they have a lot on their plate. One of the tools I think we should give our children is the ability to prioritize their time and tasks when they have more than one thing to do. This is something they will experience later on in life and they need to know how to cope. Today, it is a matter of learning how to do homework, load the dishwasher, and then wash TV. In a few years’ time, they might have a few projects at work and other responsibilities all at once. This same basic skill will help them later on in life.

Chores help them appreciate their free time. Has it ever happened to you that you have had an entire free done and done less than you would have done when you went to work? This happens to me all the time. The less time I have the more I get done. And when I don’t have as much free time I appreciate and enjoy my free time more than when I have too much of it. If you make your child do her chores before she has free time, I guarantee you she will enjoy her free time more.

Should children be paid for chores?

In my opinion, children should have some chores that they have to complete before they can be paid for additional paid chores.
They shouldn’t be paid for basic chores that should be required from all family members. However, when we offer additional chores, over and above the basic chores, it can be very beneficial to children. It teaches them the value of money and what is required to earn it. Chores teach them responsibility and work ethic. It should be a win-win solution. Paid chores should help you solve problems and get things done that you would have had to do or pay someone else to do.
