Melissa and Doug make a cute chart. I have seen it at Barns and Nobles in the kids section, but have yet to actually use one yet for my 2 year old- so I dont know how effective it is.

Hi Y.,

Here's a link to make one from a free website. You can customize it to your liking with chores that fit for your daughter and let her pick the character for it. (I used this site for other things too since there are so many great ideas to get from it.)

I laminated my twins' charts at a teacher type store or you could try Office Depot or Staples. (It was a small fee to get my charts laminated.) Then use the wipe off markers to check off or put a smiley in the boxes when the chores are done.

I use for my chore charts. I have a 4 1/2 year old and an 8 year old and they love them. I customize them for their personalities and it's great.

I found a great one at Staples for my 7 yr old and 3 yr old. It comes with stars and very simple and easy. Sunday - Saturday and 6 chores for example:
Caring for your self
Cleaning your room
Helping around the house
Extra chores etc...
Good price to.

I just made my own in Pages (mac's version of Word), then took it to the copy shop and laminated it.

My 3 (almost 4 end o this month) helps with cleaning up her toys at the end of the day, put her shoes in the pockets (shoe bag on the door), and put her dirty cloths in her "bucket". At 3 I have to say "don't forget to...." but with some gentle reminding she does really well. Also she is the best vacuumer in the house. She asked to do it one day and I gave her the wand part of the vacuum and away she went. She did the whole kitchen and dining room (both rooms are about 10 x 10 each). She did it all on her own. Now I ask her if she will about 1x a week and she does a great job! She also will help (her choice) when I do the kitchen. She uses either clorox wipes or "Simple Green" cleaner and does the front of the lower cabinets, frig, stove and dishwasher! I let her go as long as she wants and then make sure she washes her hands good when she is done. She is a great helper and does a good job. I make sure to never redo what she did and to tell others about her help. She enjoys helping and the icepop or trip outside when mom gets what I want done sooner rather than later doesn't hurt!!!!)

I made one on a white bored. I put the things i wanted them to do. (brush teeth, pj's, keep room clean, help mom) At the end of the day i put the "winner's" name. Then the next day that winner gets an extra run an errand with just mom :)
