 The older two should be able to have their own chores. Like keeping their rooms clean, beds made, and toys put away. They should also be able to help with dishes, dusting, and sweeping. With your two year old, just make cleaning a game. The more fun she's having the more she'll want to keep helping. Give them a small allowance per week. I already give my 18 month old money for helping around the house. (Mind you it's totally a small amount, like $2 a week.)

Quoting lil_mama8865:

I have 3 girls 7, 6, and 2 and the bad part is the 2 year old helps me clean more than the other 2!!! The older ones make a bigger mess than my 2 year old!! My only problem with my 2 year old is she loves to grab things while I am cleaning and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get anything done with her here!!

Quoting PNMom:

Much depends on the ages of the kids. Its a chore here and if not done there can be consequences
