Full Answer

  1. Identify an appropriate chore chart

    Identify an appropriate chore chart that meets your family's needs. Microsoft Excel comes with free family chore chart templates you can use.

  2. Allocate chores

    Allocate chores according to each family member's ability and time constraints. For younger family members, this may mean cleaning their rooms only. Older working family members should usually have less chores than those who stay at home.

  3. Fill in the chore chart

    Fill in the chore chart using your computer or with a pen. Write down each family member's name, their chore and when they're meant to finish it.

  4. Post the chart somewhere where everyone can see it

    Post the chart somewhere where everyone can see it so that all members of the family remember to do their chores. In most family homes, the kitchen is a great place to place a chore chart.

  5. Tick off the chores

    Tick off the chores as soon as each person completes them. Do this on a daily basis to make sure chores don't build up, which can result in disorganization.

  6. Print a new chore list every week

    Print a new chore list every week, as most charts are only designed to last that long. Pick a day that allows you to focus on the list for an hour, such as a Sunday.
