Chores routine for toddlers: Helping around the house


Encouraging toddlers to help around the house is a great way to teach responsibility and independence. This checklist includes simple tasks that are age-appropriate and can be easily accomplished with adult supervision. Toddlers can start their day by making their bed and putting dirty clothes in the hamper. They can then pick up their toys and help set the table for meals. After meals, they can help clear the table and wipe down surfaces with a damp cloth. Toddlers can also sweep or vacuum the floor, water plants, and feed pets if applicable. Finally, they can end their day by brushing their teeth before bed. This routine can be repeated daily and can be adjusted to include additional tasks as needed.
