My daughter is in Kindergarten and my son is three…so that means they can do the dishes right? When I say do the dishes, I mean rinse them off and stick them in the dishwasher. Because I don’t really trust them other wise. My dishes are kind of precious to me. They’re really into it and with Finish dishwasher cleaner, it makes my job SOOOO much easier! It does help that I give them incentives with my FREE Printable Chore Chart.
Sometimes it’s definitely easier (and cleaner) for me to do things myself, but I want them to learn and this is a great way to teach them. You can download this free printable HERE! I printed out the stars on regular paper and cut them out with my Silhouette Cameo. I then cut out the circles on Silhouette’s magnet paper and attached them to the stars. This way, I don’t have to print out a chart every week and I just remove the magnets every week. The kids love this! *If you have really small kids that put things in their mouths, make sure they won’t be able to reach the chart as magnets are very dangerous.
Just one request…if you download this printable, leave me a comment telling me hos much you liked it 🙂
I have to say that watching my daughter do the dishes warms my heart a little bit. It’s adorable. Even though she splashes water all over the floor, it’s exciting to see her learn to take on a few responsibilities.
I really love how easy Finish dish products are to use! My dishwasher isn’t the greatest, especially at drying so I really need something to keep my dishes from getting spots all the time. Did I mention I’m obsessed with dishes? I have over 8 sets and I like them to look their best, so I bought Finish Gel Pacs, Dishwashing Booster and Jet Dry at Wal-Mart in the cleaning supplies section. I love all these items! Walmart is doing rollback prices through October and you can download the Coupon below to get even more #SparklySavings!
In one day, my kids finished 5 chores. If they reach 20 chores by next Saturday, they get to pick a candy bar at the store. I think when they get older I’ll have them “save” points to get something bigger, but for now they can’t even begin to think of tomorrow, let alone next week. They’re already really excited and so am I because it means I don’t have to do everything around here anymore! YAY!!
How do you get your children to do chores? Would love to hear more ideas.
