7 Chores for Kindergartners

Your kids are learning about confidence, responsibility and curiosity at it’s peak once they start Kindergarten. This is a great time to get them started helping around the house. There are plenty of age appropriate chores kids can start helping with and done together as a family.

Kindergartners are naturals at sorting laundry, but maybe not at carrying the full laundry basket down the stairs, for now. You don’t want to give children chores bigger than they are , the goal is to set them up for success rather than failure.
