Recently, we've been having a few issues with getting our children to be respectful and also responsible for their own toys.

It feels like my children simply move from one room to another, destroying each one in the process and leaving a tornado of messes behind them. My husband and I feel like we are at our wit's end a little bit, and between working at home, having four kids, and still having a “baby” in the house (she's going to be 18 months, but leave me alone, OK?), it's very hard sometimes to stay organized on a chore system that works. And frankly, if I'm being totally honest with you, I've never really implemented chores for my kids on a regular basis. Our oldest is only 7, and aside from having my kids clean their rooms and pick up the toy room, I don't really make them do anything else.

But times are a'changing, and I turned to a few free printable chore charts to help us get organized around here. Check them out and tell me: Which one is your favorite?

Chore Chart Tickets

I love this option because it literally spells out the chore for the child in question. I even talked to a friend today who told me that she has implemented this system with her children with great success. She laminated her own chore cards so they don't get wrecked, and her children can turn in chores for screen time or earn money instead. Genius!

Individualized Weekly Chore Chart

I love these individualized chore charts because if you have multiple children like I do, each child can get their own color-coordinated chart that can be individualized. And the chart is good for a full week of chores, which is nice to cash in on a weekly allowance.

Weekly Chore Chart With Pictures

If simplicity is your game, you'll love this easy and customizable chore chart with weekly slots. You can add pictures to each column for kiddos that need the visual reminder, and then they can fill in each completed chore with a sticker as they go!

Chore Cards

I love these because they are a little more complex and detailed for older kids, like my 7-year-old, but still simple enough that I could use them for my 3-year-old. That way, the chores could be cashed in for incentives, like money,
