It depends on what the chore is whether I do it with Kaisen in bed or awake. If it's just cleaning bathrooms, picking up, folding laundry, then I'll do it when Kaisen is awake. It's mostly just sweeping and mopping that I'll do when K is in bed or out of the house. Every once in awhile I'll have Kaisen help me do something. Unless I'm in a hurry or K is not around, I'll always have him pick up his toys.
For a 5 and 4 year old I'd say they could definitely fold towels, that's something I did when I was young. They can wipe the kitchen/dining room table off, set the table, clean up dishes after meals, if you hand wash any dishes, they can dry them (only plastic if you prefer). Maybe Dylan could hand vacuuming (assuming you have carpet), start off with small areas like bedrooms and move to the living room or something. And it all just depends on what you think they're capable of. Every kid will be different. But those are just some ideas.
