My son's chore is to take care of himself and his things.....consistently. That means all the personal hygene and dressing, keeping his room clean, homework, asking the teacher if he's confused, picking up anything he lays down around the house, and lastly (it's a new one) if he uses dishes, he is to rinse them out and put them in the dishwasher when finished. He's 9 so that will encompass my things as he grows!
We dont have a set list however they are responsible for feeding their pets (two guinea pigs and a dog) and cleaning up after them. They also have to keep their room clean.
If we ask for help with something they do it. My youngest loves taking clorox wipes and wiping down counters, walls, anything and everything she can. My oldest enjoys drying dishes and organzing. They both sweep and take out the trash.
This is the one we have for dd . We rotate all the different tasks as needed.
My sister has a set chore list for her 7 and 6 yr old girls, but I have yet to get that organzied I guess I need to get the ball rolling she is 5.
Our daughter's (8) responsibilities are her things, her room, and her bathroom. Which are easiest if just kept up with. She gets to feed and water her cat and puppy (we help out often). Before dessert, she gets to put away all the clean dishes in their spot. If the trash needs to be changed, she does that too.
When Sunday's roll around, it's an all day cleaning day. I clean the entire home, and until I'm finished, she helps out with various tasks. Age appropriate, I think -- some examples are sweeping the front and back porches, help pick up weeds, put away folded laundry, etc. She's a very good helper, but I've found her tasks are best if kept small and easily accomplished.
