Chore Jar

  • Mica and I put together what we call a, Chore Jar. There are all kinds of tasks we thought up that can be done around the house. I wrote them down on slips of paper, and put them into a jar.
  • Mica pulls one out each night, and completes the chore. Some tasks we have to help him with of course.
  • He did a really great job helping me with laundry the other day! I had only clean clothing to put away. I set the clothing in piles and Mica put the ones away that went in his dresser and laid his shirts on his desk, so that I could hang them up. He put Isaak's clothing on Isaak's dresser for me.
  • Another night Mica pulled dishes out of the Chore Jar. He helped me put dishes into the dishwasher. I had to correct the placement of just about every dish, but he's learning. LOL
  • He also did a great job helping me pick up toys last night. As you can imagine the house has toys all over it after Daddy watches our kids and our nephew's Evan and Elijah. Mica's pretty particular about where things go, so he does better with cleaning up when Isaak's not around. Plus any kid likes it when an adult is participating with them. So far I've been responsible for the helping with the chore he pulls out.
