Chores for Toddlers: If they can walk they can help

“Housework is what a woman does that nobody notices unless she hasn’t done it”

Chores for Toddlers’

Chores for todlders are a very good idea. There is no doubt that children are messy. It seems that they always leave a path of destruction in their wake. We are constantly picking up after them. It is a never ending story of stepping on Lego’s and doll parts.

But, if they can walk, they can help! Start giving your child little things to do around the house. Depending on their age, there are a lot of things they can do to make life easier. Also, it will teach them the value of having a clean place to enjoy with the family.

There are a bunch of things toddlers can do to help around the house. I’ve chosen 12 chores that Toddlers can do with supervision. This list should help get things done faster and hopefully make it more fun.

These chores for toddlers should be a big help for you and the family.

Chores Toddlers’ can Tackle

1- Pick up and put away their toys

to make this easier, have a cubby system at their level so they know where their toys go and it’s easy to sort them

2- Put their dirty clothes in the hamper (laundry basket)

this is easy enough just put the clothes in the basket when they take them off

3- Help sort the laundry

this one is pretty easy just dark and lights, also helps with learning colors

4- Unload the cooled down dryer

Allie loves helping mommy take the clothes out of the dryer 🙂

5- Help get the mail

they can put outgoing mail in the mailbox and bring in the mail for the house

6- Dust unbreakable items around the house

this is especially good for the meticulous child who likes things just so

7- Unpack and put away unbreakable groceries

Allie really enjoys putting the boxes in the pantry for mommy

8- Sweep the floor with a small broom and dust pan

they will get a kick out of pouring the dirt and dust in the trash

9- Tear lettuce for salad

a very easy and fun task to prepare for dinner

10- Water the outside plants

having their own small water pitcher makes this a fun experience

chores for toddler to tackle

11- Pull weeds

this is a fun chore with supervision so they don’t pull everything

12- Snap green beans

Allie loves doing this with Mommy, she  thinks  it’s silly to hear the snap each time

Including the kids in helping with the chores teaches them responsibility and takes some of the work off of your back.

Knowing how to keep things clean is a great lesson. Children also really love to help out wherever they can. They love to be included in the daily happenings.

I’m sure you can figure out a few more chores for toddlers to help  around the house.

Here is a link for a great chore chart to get you started with your toddler

Wishing you stress-free house cleaning and more fun with your children.
