My kids are 6 and 4 and we have had chore chart for the past couple years. I started with my son at about 4 and my daughter wanted one too, so she started at 2 :) The chores were and are still super simple, like get yourself dressed, brush your teeth (I still help my dd), eat meals without arguing over what it is, take without arguing, go to bed without arguing (I hate when they whine). Just like daily tasks they are suppose to learn anyway, I just made it more important to them so they would want to do it.
Now as my son gets older he has things like to make his bed, do well in school, feed the cat. My daughter has added to clean up her toys and she likes to set the table!
