Printable blank chore chart templates (for kids or adults)

We get it. You’re working from home or you’re staying safe inside your house with your family. You have most of the things you need to stay in, but you still feel like you’re forgetting something. That’s when you remember that you didn’t do the laundry, that you forgot to buy toilet paper, or something similar.

Even with the thousands of apps that can create schedules, to-do lists, and more, it’s easy to forget about the things you have to do. Especially during the lockdown, because we’re so distracted by keeping up with the news, social media, trying to manage kid’s activities to entertain children, and more. That’s why we’ve created the perfect printable chore charts for you to keep everything and everyone on track at home.

Why are printable chore charts so useful?

As we said, there are thousands of apps that do exactly the same on your phone. Still, a good old printable chore chart is more effective. Why? Because when you take the time to write something down (as in a to-do list or chart), you’re actually creating a mental reminder that will last longer.

Also, a chore chart in paper can be posted anywhere around the house, so you can have a visual reminder that will keep you occupied with the things that you should be doing. Those are just two of the many advantages that you can harness to organize your home or to use your time efficiently.

How to use a chore chart?

Chore charts are easy to use and can promote organized critical thinking. Here’s how to use them:

  1. Download one of our charts and print.
  2. They are blank, so you’ll have to know what you want to do or your plans. When you figure it out, simply write it down on the chart.
  3. Assign an estimated or specific date or hour to get things done. You can also leave that space blank or add an important description of each activity.
  4. Finally, post the chore chart in a visible place, like the kitchen, the fridge, the back of your bathroom door (if the chores are related), or somewhere you know you will see it.

This will work because you’ll remember what you wrote yourself (instead of typing on your phone). Also, you’ll be able to see it again, whether you want it or not if you post it in a visible place. Once the activity is done, you can add a checkmark to remove it from your to-do list. This will work with kids and adults alike.

We’ve created two different chore charts that will help you and your children to get things done. If you’re planning to give one of these to your children, make sure to explain how to use them, and keep tabs on them to know if they’re actually doing the activities. This will help them be more organized, ultimately helping them succeed in life.
