Printable Chore Chart Stickers!
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!
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! First, access the printable files by using the instructions below.

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!

This is PERFECT! I made a simple illustrated morning and bedtime checklist for my daughter several months ago, and they have been working great except that they aren’t easy and quick to customize for certain days or just for adding things as she’s ready for more responsibility – like when she got her pet fish 2 months ago and I STILL haven’t printed a new morning list to include “feed fish.” I can’t wait to try this!
I love this idea! I tried printing them out on my avery 6450 labels and they didn’t line up. I’m techy so I’m not sure why they didn’t line up. Even when I printed a sample sheet on regular paper and held them up to the labels they didn’t line up. I wasted 10 sheets of paper!
I am so sorry to hear this – I too don’t really know why it wouldn’t work for you. I’ve printed sheets and sheets and have had no issues. Two suggestions to try: for one, make sure you open the PDF in your PDF reader (rather than printing directly from the browser) and also make sure it is printing at 100% resolution. I’ll keep thinking and will let you know if I come up with anything else to try!
I had the same issue but once I opened the pdf file directly instead of printing from the browser, it worked perfectly.
Can you tell me where you got the icons? I’d like to add some more chores and I want them to match!
I am so happy to hear you’re using my stickers! As far as the images, I just googled random image icons and used Adobe Illustrator to change them to white. For example, I would search “broom icon” or “computer icon.” Unfortunately, all the icons aren’t from a set or website I can point you to, but hopefully that will help a bit!
Hey there Megan,
First off, thank you so much for these printables. I’ve been looking for a customizable chore chart, and you have made it so easy for me.
Second, I am not techy, and am trying to figure out how to print the stickers grey…. is there a way?
Thank you so much,
Yes – at least there is on my printer! On the Print screen, I am able to select “Black and White.” I’ve attached a screenshot so you can see. Also, be sure you print at 100% resolution to make sure they line up right!
Hope that helps!
Thanks so much for this. I am working on pulling it together right now and was trying to use my cutting machine to create the “grey” images but was going to do blue and pink (for my son and daughter) and I am not able to add the pictures to the cricut design space to get them to cut. How did you do this?
Hello! I have tried signing up for the newsletter twice – but I never get a confirmation email! If you could enter my email manually, maybe it would work. I’ve been checking my spam, so I know it’s not there. Thanks for the help.
SO glad I found your site! You’re a freaking genius… I have been searching off and on all day for your simple yet eye catching, efficient and functional organizational designs. These are exactly what I was looking for! THANK YOU!!
Lol! You are most welcome! So glad you found my system, and I hope it works for your needs! We still use it every single day!
Have a great week!
I have been searching for an icon list like this for days. I love that you are offering them for free. I signed up for your newsletter, got the confirmation email, then got a second email saying “here’s the password” but the password isn’t in the email. Are these no longer a free download? Thank you.
