If you’re a parent with elementary age children and you’re looking for ways to encourage helping out around the house, check out the Deck of Chores.
These cards are actual playing cards, (so you can play poker with them even after your kids leave the nest) but they have the added bonus of being a fun way to create chore lists for kids. From the manufacturer’s website:
Now children can either play games for chores, parents can set out which chores need to be completed or have the entire family pick a card each for their daily chore.
What a great way to have fun with the entire family
Build confidence, responsibility and organization
You could easily create something similar in a DIY project with cardstock and your computer’s printer, specifically customized for your home’s needs. Mostly, I like the idea of making chores for children fun.
