Ever since I launched The Organization Toolbox and started asking for suggestions, there have been many requests for some sort of printable chore chart for kids. I really, really wanted to make one for you all, but I was having a hard time figuring out a useful system that also lent itself to a “printable” format. As such, the “Chore Chart” sat on my idea list for a good long time and simmered in the back of my brain. Well…fast forward to these last two months when Henry learned the connection between helping around the house, earning money, and being able to spend that money on whatever he wanted. Suddenly, he was asking for jobs to do (in order to earn money, of course), and Greg and I were left scrambling to identify chores, track the chores, and pay him (consistently!) for the things he did do. After brainstorming and playing around with options as a family (seriously, this was a group effort!), we came up with an adorable, fun, and super user-friendly chore chart that we are ALL loving!
Right now, I am over on I Heart Organizing sharing all the details on our new Chore Chart system, including how it works and how to make one yourself! I’m telling you friends, this little system has changed the way Henry helps around the house and has saved our sanity on “pay day.” This system might look complicated to make from the onset, but don’t you fret – it can come together in an afternoon because I did all the hard work for you!
Yep – those are Chore Chart Stickers (that look a lot like my Planner Stickers…which is where I got the idea!). I’ve come up with 36 different “symbols” that would work for a variety of chores and ages and designed them to fit AVERY 6450 1″ round labels. I also included a sheet of blank stickers, so you can add any words or symbols that you want/need on your family chart! And as usual, I am sharing the files with you for FREE!
If you would like your own copy of these Printable Chore Chart Stickers, I have them available for download over in The Organization Toolbox right now! If you already have my password, hop on over and grab your copy, then come back to see how to print them out!

I wanted this chore chart project to be as quick and easy as possible (for me and for you!), so I designed the whole project to essentially be peel, stick, go! Once you’ve downloaded your files, simply print them out onto AVERY 6450 labels…
…and peel away the paper backing to reveal a bunch of bright, fun, and colorful Chore Chart stickers.
Then, hop on over to I Heart Organizing to see how I transformed the stickers into magnets…
…and assembled an easy-to-use Chore Chart board that our entire family is loving!
You guys know I have a history for coming up with pretty and fun organizing systems, but then sometimes discover (after they hit the blog, of course) that they didn’t really quite work out as intended. Well, friends. After 2+ weeks of using this system, I can say this one is truly a winner. Henry is responding SO well to moving his magnets as he completes his chores, and Greg and I are loving having a simple-to-use system to determine payment and hold him accountable. Oh…and all the extra help around the house is pretty wonderful too!
I do hope you’ll pop over to I Heart Organizing to see how this system works and how easy it comes together. If you coming over to visit from Jen’s site, welcome!! I’m so glad you’re here, and I hope you’ll stay and have a look around!
And with that, I’m signing off for the week! See you back here next week (on my regular posting days: Tues/Thurs) with some quick back-to-school crafts and a first look at Henry’s new “command center.”! See you then!
