I try to give my boys chores or work on different habits with them. As a former teacher, I love charts to keep track of these things. I love the visual for the kids- reminders as to what they have to do as well as a way for them to see how they are doing.
My Precious Kid, which has a variety of child safety and baby gear products, sent me a Melissa & Doug Responsibility Chart, valued at $19.99. Melissa & Doug always have quality products and this one is no exception.
You can hang this on the wall and pick from 25 pre-printed chores or values that you want to work on for the week. Things like “put toys away” or “stop whining.” There are also 2 that you can customize and come up with your own goal for the week.
I like mixing them up, with some that will be very easy for my child to meet(like “take a bath”) and some that will be challenging(like “don’t use bad language” since 5 has been the potty-mouth stage for us. G-rated potty-language, but still things that I don’t want to hear).
If he meets his goal of having a set number of smiley faces at the end of the week, he gets a prize. Right now, he’s working toward a swim night, with just Mom and Dad(no brothers!).
You could really use some of the most basic responsibilities/goals even with 3 year-olds. Though, there are some “older” chores, like doing homework, loading the dishwasher, and taking out trash.
One of you can win your own Melissa & Doug Magnetic Responsibility Chart. Though, I do want to let you know that My Precious Kid has a free giveaway for new parents that you can check out HERE.
