Pick a chore, any chore
- Playing Cards
- Permanent markers
Gather the family and decide what chores need to be done
- Write one chore on the back of each playing card. You can do something fun with the “joker” to make it more exciting. For example: “Switch chores with a sibling.” Even better: “Take the day off!”
- Fan the cards out and have each child pick a designated amount of cards. Kids can also swap cards with each other on their own.
- Get cleaning!
Tip: Store the cards in a Ziploc® container to keep them all together without worrying about losing a card or two, especially if you’ve got a clever one who wants to hide their least favorite chore card!
