Kids + Summertime = Time for More… Chores!

When most people think of kids and summertime, they probably think of things like playing outside, riding bikes, going to the pool, and summer camps.

Those things are great, but in our family we’ve always found that summertime is a great time to ramp up our kids’ responsibilities. During the school year they’re so busy with homework and after school activities that it doesn’t leave much time for helping out around the house.

In the summer we give them additional chores and require them to spend a certain amount of time each day reading and working on new hobbies (they still have plenty of free time!)

If you’re thinking about establishing some new routines and starting some new chores this summer, it’s a great time to order customized chore charts for your kids!
