Deck Of Chores

If your children are anything like mine it is like pulling teeth to get them to do chores. I came across Deck of Chores which are custom sized cards that make chores fun .

There are a few of variations on the instruction sheet of how to play Deck of Chores but my kids like to make up their own games, which is fine with me since it actually gets them to do their chores LOL.

The other night we payed a few different games as a family and we each came up with a Saturday chore list. There have been days were we have not had time to sit down an play a game , so times like that I get a few cards fan them out and tell then to pick a card.

I like that 4 blank cards included for writing in your own chores, so if there is some for the kids or even mom and dad it can be added to the deck ! We leave one blank as a reward (no chore) card.

About Deck of Chores:

Deck of Chores can be kept on your kitchen counter and should be used by children as one way to help out their busy parents. Discuss as a family and choose a specific place in the home where your children know to check for chore cards left for them on a daily basis.

Or, set the Deck of Chores in a location where your family members can easily take a card, read it and perform the chore. There are also 4 blank chore cards for parents or children to add their own specific chore that is not already part of the deck (set the table, wash the windows, set the table).

Deck of Chores promotes confidence, responsibility and a sense of accomplishment while getting children acquainted with certain household chores.

Parents, you no longer need to remind your child to perform an assigned chore. Simply choose the chore card(s) and leave them in an agreed place for the child to retrieve.

Extra credit can be given to the child who finishes additional “unassigned” chores.

BUY: Visit Deck of Chores , priced at $14.99.

    A neat idea....I would have liked more blank cards to fill in chores specific to the individual family. I couldn't see the list but I could see writing in smaller jobs such as instead of vacuum the house it might be vacuum the living room; instead of clean the bathroom it might say empty bathroom wastebasket(s)...
