18 thoughts on “DIY Chore Bucket for Kids

  1. Send Deuce my way! I have a mountain of laundry that needs to be folded. Sigh.

    I love this idea. I did something similar with my kids and they’ve turned out to be pretty productive people. (Pats myself on the back.)

    Thanks for linking up to #ShowMeYours XOXO

  2. It’s great that you added a done bucket. It always encourages people to do more if they can see what they have accomplished I think.

    1. It’s time for a new one because he’s asking for more! LOL Thanks Heidi.

  3. This is a great way to entice kids to help and learn responsibility! Thanks so much for sharing on Makeovers & Motherhood’s Welcome Party Wednesday Link-Up Party! I am featuring it this week!

  4. Yes, we definable do chores around here, and the gold stars mean so much to kids! At the end of the week, if my daughter earns X amount of starts she knows there is a reward for her, and I told her that it could be anything, she’ll never know cause it’s a surprise (honestly I don’t know either, so it’s a surprise for us both!)

    1. Surprise is right! I promised my son an iTunes gift card not knowing that most stores carry the lowest denomination at $15. I was expecting $5 or $10. I had to eat my words. Thanks Kalley!

  5. So glad I stopped by here today. Just last night I told the hubs that I needed to create a “chore list” of some sort for our little one. We’re trying to teach her about responsibility and EARNING money/rewards. This is a really good idea. With this she could even practice her reading. Love it. Pinning it. Doing it.

    1. Oh good, Andrea. Thank you. I had been thinking about doing this for a while. Then we had a parent-teacher conference with Deuce’s teacher and she expressed how she knew he was “well taken care of”. AKA he’s spoiled! She told me that when she tells him his shoe is untied, he sticks his foot out for her to tie it. Oh no! And how he constantly misplaces his personal things like supplies, sweaters, coats, etc. That was the final straw for me. Hope it helps your little one.

  6. Believe it or not, my favorite chore was cleaning. I’m still a cleaner! I swear sometimes that I’m going to open a cleaning company, but I think professional organizing will more than do. My least favorite: cooking. I’d do anything rather than cook. I was scared of oil splattering on me and getting burned, and it seemed to take so long to get the cooking process over. Hated it! And now, I love to cook. Who knew? LOL

    1. If my mother even started to use the word “chore”, I would cringe. Washing dishes was the worst. Now that I have my own house, I get it! Just like my mother always told me. I’m still afraid of oil splattering on me. But I definitely enjoy cooking now. Thanks, Alison!
