What is a Chore Chart?
A chore chart is a simple visual chart designed for kids to track household chores or responsibilities.
It also helps kids learn time management and the importance of contributing to the family’s daily tasks and maintaining a clean and organized living space.
How to use the Chores chart?
Using a visual chore chart has proven to be a game-changer for many Kids.
The process is remarkably simple: The chart includes six tasks for the morning and six tasks for the evening. Whenever kids complete a task, they can remove it from the Task space and place it in the designated Completed Tab.
This approach offers a clear and visual representation of the tasks at hand, making it easier for children to understand and follow.

Directions to Make a Visual chore chart for kids
Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned creator, allow me to walk you through the process step by step. I’ll also share some helpful tips and tricks along the way.
1. Download and Print the Pages
Download the printable at the end of this post and print it on thick cardstock paper (200GSM) using high-quality printer settings for the best results.
You’ll need to print two pages: one is the base page, and the other contains the chore cards.
2. Personalize Chores by Adding to the List
There’s a total of 21 Chore cards available.
Do you want to add some additional chores that aren’t on the list? No worries!
Chores can vary from one household to another. That’s why We’ve included some empty tabs so that you can customize the chart to match your child’s specific needs.
After drawing in the necessary chores, cut away any excess on all four sides so that you only laminate what’s required.
3. Laminate the Pages
Place the pages into a laminating pouch and laminate them. I used small A5-sized laminating pouches for the chores, which become small after trimming the excess.
4. Cut the Pieces
After the laminating pouch has cooled down, cut the pieces out separately. This step (cutting after the heat is gone) is crucial to prevent the lamination from peeling off the paper.
5. Round off the Edges
The pieces may have sharp edges that could potentially harm kids. Use a corner rounder to smooth out the edges and make the chore cards child-friendly.
If you don’t have a corner rounder, scissors can do the job as well.
6. Add Velcro to the Base Sheet and Chore Cards
Attach the hook side (the rough side) to the base page and the loop side (the soft side) to the back of the chore cards.
7. Hang it on the Wall
Lastly, use masking tape to affix the visual chore chart on the wall. This allows kids to easily track their responsibilities.

I believe it will be a great addition to your Household that you and your family will appreciate. Feel free to let me know in the comments if you need me to add any other chore card in the printable.
