Age-appropriate chores for kids

Recently I started to think about age-appropriate jobs for kids and how it would make my life so much easier. To be honest, I was so used to do everything my self that I didn’t even think about assigning some jobs to my kids. It doesn’t mean that I never asked them to do something, I did, and they tried so hard to ignore me, or they would wine so much that in the end, I would do it my self, and it would make me angry. So I decided to look online, and I found a list of age-appropriate jobs that I would love to share with you. And hopefully, it will help us make our life a bit easier.

For kids ages 2-3:

-put toys away

-put away books

-put away dirty laundry in the hamper

-put trash in the garbage

-grab diapers and wipes

-wipe up spills

-stir up ingredients

-feed pets and fill water

-unload plastic cups, bowls, plates from the dishwasher

-help get clothes from the washing machine to dryer

Let me know in the comments below, do your kids help you out with chores. And if they do, please tell me how you did it. I would really appreciate it.

Until next time, my darlings, love you, stay safe, and I will talk to you soon.
