Chore Chart for 4-Year-Old
Each child develops at a different pace. Some kids might not be ready for some of these chores. If not, don’t push them. Check out our list of age-appropriate chores to find daily chores for kids that are more relevant.
This preschool chore chart has pictures so that your 4-year-old understands each chore on the list.
This responsibility chart lists a child’s daily responsibilities with an image next to each one since your four-year-old most probably cannot read yet.
In addition to the chores that a child is required or asked to do at home, children have responsibilities for their basic hygiene and their own personal responsibilities. For a four-year-old, responsibilities could include making their bed, putting toys away when they have finished playing, putting their dirty plates in the dishwasher, etc. Since they cannot read, this responsibility chart includes pictures to help them understand what they need to do. Take a photo of each task and add it to the chart. For example, if you want to add “tidy your room” to the chart then take a photo of them tidying their room. If you don’t want to bother taking photos and personalizing the chart then use photos from the gallery.
