  • He makes his bed, cleans his room, picks up after himself, helps his older brother set and clear the table, empties the clean silverware from the dishwasher, and helps take the trash to the dumpster if it's not too heavy.

  • My 5yo has the same chores as my older kids: keep her toys, books, clothes picked up in her room, keep her bedding on her bed (they don't have to make it), pick up any toys/clothes from any other room, dirty dishes in the sink, fold and put away their clean clothes, clean up any mess they make while making/eating a meal including sweeping the floor and wiping down the counter, unload the dishwasher if asked, take out the recycling when asked (she can't usually lift the garbage), help in the yard, carry in groceries, help with her baby brother, helps keep the kids' bathroom clean (they use baby wipes to wipe down the sink and toilet... I don't clean it, the 4 of them do). She also like to dust and sweet (although she's not very good at sweeping).
