Getting your kiddos to do chores can be a challenge! We all know that kiddos need to learn how to help clean the house, but Moms also know that can be a challenge. So today I’m sharing one of my secrets! My mom use to do this fun game – Chores in My Hat with my brothers and I and I’ve been doing it with my kiddos for years. This is a fun way to get your kiddos to get excited about doing chores and happy to help out around the house.
The concept is making chores fun by giving it a game feel. I’ve got 2 free Chores in My Hat printables – one with the jobs I use for my kiddos and one that’s blank where you can add your own.
So here’s how it works:
- list out all your chores and cut them out
- place all the chores in a hat
- let the kiddos take turns picking out a chore, going in a circle until all the chores have been picked
- go forth and clean
I allow my kiddos to trade chores if they want too, since some have jobs they prefer.
You’ll be amazed at he attitude difference you’ll see. I’ll put some fun music on while we clean too and within a few hours you have a much cleaner house!
