We are a busy family of 5 and because we homeschool and Curt works from home some days, we spend A LOT of our time at home. When Henry and Finn turned 5 we slowly started implementing chores into our weekly routine. I think kids should be a part of keeping a home tidy and clean especially since they help make quite a bit of the messes (HAHA)! My boys are now 8, 8, and 4 and they all contribute on a daily basis and have a small set of weekend chores they help out with on Saturdays.
Ya’ll know I love using Walmart+
+ and even though I’ve shared it on here before, I’m excited to share a few more benefits of the Walmart + membership! We’ve been using Walmart+ for over a year now and we use it on a weekly basis! Whether its putting in a grocery order for delivery or just needing a few things for homeschool or a day trip – I love the convenience of having Walmart+ for free grocery delivery & more ($35 order min. Restrictions apply).
We use Walmart+ to grab cleaning supplies and keep things stocked so the boys have everything they need on Saturday mornings! I made these little cleaning caddies to help them keep their supplies together for when they clean the bathrooms and found everything included from Walmart. You can shop for everything shown above right HERE and make your own little cleaning caddies! I love this spin mop and once the kids finish cleaning the bathrooms, I come in after them and get it extra clean for the week! This handheld broom is a perfect item for cleaning in small spaces for the boys, they think it’s the coolest thing!
I wanted to share the chore charts I created for them! I highly recommend printing and posting chore charts somewhere where your kids can easily see them and even interact with them if that will help remind them to do their chores!
They also tidy up their room before bed each night, but that’s just part of their evening routine so I don’t have it on their list.
A big question is “do you pay your kids for doing their chores”? Yes! We give them a set amount each weekend once their weekend chores are finished. Sometimes if we see them take initiative on other tasks around the house that past week we will add to their allowance money they are receiving on the weekends. It’s not a lot but just a little amount of money that they can save up and get something. It’s completely up to you if you want to pay your kids for doing chores and we didn’t at first but in the last few years it’s been fun to see them work hard to save up for something they really want and we feel good about giving back to them when they chip in around the house.
If you didn’t know Walmart gives you so many other benefits in addition to free same day delivery! You can savings on fuel – up to 10 cents on every gallon at over 14K stations nationwide, free shipping for online purchases with no minimum order required, and a 30 day trial just to see if you like it!
