Responsibilities for kids

Every child is different, but here is a list of great ways for your kids to begin taking responsibility around the home!

According to Age

Ages 2-4

  • Pick up their toys and put them where they belong
  • Wipe off sinks and counters
  • Clear their own dishes from the table
  • Dusting

Ages 5-7

  • All of the above
  • Put away clean folded laundry
  • Unload Dishwasher
  • Set and clear the table
  • Make their own bed
  • Clean toilets
  • Help care for family pets
  • Help prepare meals

Ages 8-10

  • All of the above
  • Put away groceries
  • Do their own laundry start to finish
  • Clean the bathroom
  • Sweep and mop floors
  • Vacuum
  • Cook a few things independently ie. Scramble an egg

Ages 10 and above

At this point, if you have been giving your child responsibilities as they grow, they should really be able to perform most household tasks pretty well.

Establish expectations early so you are on the same page as to what the finished task looks like.
