Do your boys have any chores?

If so, what are they?


My oldest (11) is in charge of cleaning off the table after dinner and sweeping the floor. He also has to take out the trash (if it's not too heavy) and scoop the litter box daily and change it every weekend. He also helps with laundry his job is to hang all the kids clothes. About every other week I make him pull his bed and dresser out and clean behind them (we always find things we're missing!!)

My 6 yr old is in charge of feeding and giving water to the cat, he has to go around every night and gather up all the clothes/shoes stuff like that and put it where it belongs. He also helps Joe with the litter box. His laundry job is to match and fold socks.

My 3 yr old doesn't have any assigned chores yet but I usually just tell him to help with certain things his brothers are doing.

Then every night they all participate in "10 minute clean up" where they run around and gather up all the toys and take them back to the playroom and tidy that room up. They all also do the baseboards and cupboard fronts (wiping them off) about every 2 weeks - weird as it is they ENJOY that job lol.
