My kids are 10, 9, 8 and 5. Since I'm not their maid their chores include cleaning up any mess they make in any room of the house. That includes cleaning their rooms, cleaning up after they make/eat a meal (wiping counters, sweeping floors), cleaning up toys and coloring stuff in the living room and art room (formerly the dining room), cleaning their bathroom, folding and putting away their own clothes (although the older 3 also know how to do their own laundry start to finish), take out the trash and recycling, help carry in groceries, empty the dishwasher when asked, dust when asked, help in the yard (my 9yo likes to mow the lawn and, yes, he's big enough to do it), help with their baby brother. All 4 of them have the same chores.
