Chores for Children of different ages

Giving the right chores

Children can help out around the house in many different ways. For example, they can simply go outside to play when the grown-ups need to do big jobs in the house. Some families expect older children to help with younger children – amusing them, distracting them, protecting them and so on.

Here are some ideas for chores for children of different ages.

Toddlers (2-3 years)

  • Pick up toys and books.
  • Put clothes on clothes hooks.
  • Set placemats on the dinner table.

Preschoolers (4-5 years)

  • Set the table for meals.
  • Help with preparing meals, under supervision.
  • Help put clean clothes into piles for each family member, ready to fold.
  • Help with grocery shopping and putting away groceries.
  • Hand you wet clothes to be hung out to dry.

School-age children (6-8 years)

  • Water the garden and indoor plants.
  • Feed pets.
  • Clean the bathroom sink, wipe down kitchen benches, mop floors or take out rubbish.
  • Help hang out clothes and fold washing.
  • Put away crockery and cutlery.
  • Help with choosing meals and shopping.
  • Help with meal preparation and serving, under supervision.
