Free Printable Chore Chart to Help Kids Get Organized and Reach Their Goals

Summer break is almost upon us. (Tomorrow is the last day of school for us, and I know a lot of schools are out already!) And while I love having the boys home and the extra freedom we have in our schedule, I also know that our days go a lot more smoothly if I am able to build some structure into them.

I’ve found that if the boys and I go into the summer with a plan, they’re a lot less bored, I have to break up fewer fights, and its a more positive all around experience for everyone! Enter, our goal charts… sometimes referred to as chore charts!

I simply print out the goals printable provided below and work with each of the boys to come up with some things that they want to work on throughout the summer.

We have grade appropriate activity books that the boys can work through. We try to include something active / outdoor activity. We include some chores they can do to help out around the house. It will look a little different for each kid, but we try to have them contribute their ideas for the chart so they feel more personally invested in it and are more likely to be excited about it!

Chore Chart Laminated, Use a Dry Erase Marker to Fill It In

(My biggest struggles in the mornings are getting the boys to put their dirty clothes in the hamper, hang up their towel after they shower, and turn of the light in their room… I’m hoping that by adding those things to their chart, we’ll ingrain them into their routine this summer! Who know these little things would be so difficult?! 😉 )

Not sure which chores to choose? This post from The Happy Housewife has a great list of chore suggestions broken down by age.

Once we have the goals listed down the left side of the chart, I like to run it through my laminator so the boys can check off the goals they accomplish with a dry erase marker. This way, we can use one sheet over and over again without having to print a new chart each week.

Along with helping to keep the boys on track, the chore chart is also helpful to me because anytime they come to me saying, “I’m boooorrrrreeeddd!” I can point them to the chart, and immediately they have several ideas of tasks they can work on!

If  goal/ chore charts would be helpful in your house, you can snag the free printable below!

  1. Keep it up with the chores. My kids were THERE (cute as a button, awful chore-doers), too, and with age, they are now great chore-doers. Their spouses will love me. 🙂

    Ugh, getting kids to clean up. With my three it sounds like I am slowly torturing them by all of their screaming and tears. No amount of warning, discussion or positive attitude makes it easy. My hope is as they get older there will just be less messes to clean. My kids are 6,5, and 3, I think this rewards chart might do the trick. A visual for all three to understand and have goals for. I like it!

    I have been using your “planning my day” for my homeschooled boys. It has help us out tremendously. They have scheduled lessons with their teachers, regular lessons, and extra activities. Little notes of reminders are now too small! Thanks for a full page!

  4. This is great! These forms are simple yet covers the bases. Right now I use a popsicle method which works great but when I’m ready to move onto just having pencil and paper, this will be a great form!

  5. Do yo have a version in spanish?

  6. I’ve had a difficult time organizing anything, let alone my life due to my ADHD and dyslexia. But I am working very hard at it. A lot of the tools you have on your site are very useful and I appreciate all your hard work putting everything all together. I don’t know how you do it with 2 boys!
    Thanks again

  7. THIS is what I needed today! Been feeling super sorry for myself after cleaning up after everyone yet again! And I was thinking that my girls are old enough to start helping out more! So you must have known that mums like me needed this today! Printing it out as I type this comment – lifesaver! Thanks!!

  8. Thank you for this idea! My daughter hates doing chores but likes lists so I am hoping this will motivate her ?

      Aw, I hope it’s helpful for her! Thanks, Milena!

  9. Hi Abby, while I don’t have kids yet I did utilise these printables for myself and my partner for cleaning the house. I love that they are called Goals and not Chores. I see us as a team and these things (cleaning things) need to be done. It’s great when you can share them. We all mess up the house we all need to clean.
    Thanks for sharing.
