Free: Kids Chore Charts

Since I'm a list maker at heart, I love the idea of a chart to help kids keep track of their daily chores. I just made this chore chart for my cousin, since she was having a hard time finding a cute chore chart for her little girls. 


{download here}


Just in case you need it too, I'm sharing! I also made one for boys too. These charts can be filled, printed, placed in a page protector (or laminated) and checked off with a dry erase marker so you can re-use it over and over.
            

The above printable is editable so you can fill in the fields by typing instead of writing.
For personal use only. Please do not reproduce for commercial use.

  9. It let's me download these but then asks me to enter the document passwords to use them?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Specifically, it says "Please enter the Document Permissions password to remove the restrictions" The little box that pops up is titled PDF security password

    1. Hi Emily! I don’t know why it wouldn’t let you type in the fields and print. I do have a password protection on both charts, but that is only for preventing copying. I can email you the file if you would like?

  11. I love these! I just edited in my kids' chores and now am having trouble printing. It asks me to click "sign" to edit and then "done signing" to save a copy. I can't find "sign" or "done signing".....

    1. I’m sorry that it’s not printing. I tweaked the security settings and uploaded a new version, which hopefully will work better for you. Please let me know if it still isn’t letting you print and I’ll try emailing it to you.

    2. Hi,
      These are perfect! I was able to download and fill, but it says I have to "sign" before I can save....not sure what to do?
      Thanks!

    3. Hi Mary,
      I looked up saving fillable PDFs online and this was the number one answer. I hope it helps.
      “The free Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to view and print fillable PDF forms. It does not allow you to save a form to your PC once you have filled them in. You must have Adobe Acrobat Writer software installed on your computer to save completed PDF forms for future reference or to send as an attachment to an e-mail. An option is to download the free Foxit PDF reader from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/. It will allow you to save your filled out forms. You can also use the previous version of Adobe Reader 8.1.3, but with both Foxit and Adobe Reader version 9, you will have all available options.”

  12. These are so cute, but it's asking me for a password when I try to edit it in photoshop. Can you help? Thanks!

  13. Hi Sarah! All of my printables are password protected and cannot be edited in Photoshop or AI. These are fillable and can be filled and printed using Adobe Acrobat.

  14. Thank you! I found you via http://organizeyourstuffnow.com I'm sharing this chore chart printable on my blog www.dixiedollardeals.blogspot.com Already printed out the chart for my 7 year old so she can keep busy all summer!

  15. I love it! I just started following you! Thanks! Found it on pinterest. I have 4 kids and one on the way, and I needed some help scheduling what to do for the summer so I am using this to include my non chore items for the kids like read Bible,20 min practicing a skill, excercise, journal, etc.. so we can track our progress so we can earn a weekly prize like a trip to Dairy queen. Thanks I have more summer planning ideas on my crafty, healthy, homeschool blog at www.apronsandapples.blogspot.com . Glad to have found you! Kristy

  17. I love this chore chart! I found this through pinterest and I really think this is what will work for my family. I've tried to download and add my kids' names and chores but when I print it's blank. Not sure if this is user error or what. I've tried it on both the girls chart and boys chart. Let me know if I'm doing something wrong!

    1. Hi Sara! Here are a few ideas that I found online, I hope they help.
      If you can't print a PDF form, there may be a number of reasons. Try some or all of these steps to see if you can fix it:
       Use Acrobat 8.0 (or later) to open the file directly after downloading. You can download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader Free on Adobe's Web site: http://get.adobe.com/reader/
       Make sure to click outside of the form field before printing. If a form field is active or selected (e.g. contains the blinking bar) the contents of that block will not print.
       When the print diologue box appears try selecting "Print document and markups" from the drop down menu located under the section labeled "Comments and Forms". Or print the PDF as an image by choosing "Print as Image" from the "Advanced" window in the Print dialog box.
       Occasionally if you print a range of pages instead of 'all pages' it prints filled in information correctly.
       Most printing problems can be resolved by obtaining and installing the most recent print driver available for your particular make and model printer. Most printer manufacturers provide free printer driver updates from their web sites.
       As a last resort, download the PDF file again and fill it out again.

    2. Thank you so much, Bekah! Apparently I hadn't downloaded the Adobe update in a while. Doing that fixed the problem. I'm so happy!

  18. Hi! When I print this the words print like they are double, but it's only the words. Everything else prints fine....any suggestions?? I know it's not my printer, I tested it with a word document & it printed fine. I also updated my adobe to make sure I had the latest? Has anyone else had this problem?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi! Sorry that your having issues printing the chart. As far as I know no one else has had this issue. I scoured the net for a solution, but the only thing I found is the font may possibly be triggering the text in the text box to print twice. Printing the file as an image bypasses that by sending the printer a simple image of the document instead.
      1. Ensure that your printer is turned on and connected.
      2. Choose File > Print, and then click Advanced.
      Mac OS: If you don't see the Advanced button, click the Down Arrow (to the right of the Printer pop-up menu).
      3. Select Print As Image.
      4. Click OK to close the Advanced Print Setup dialog box, and then click OK to print.

  23. Hi! I love these chore charts and can't wait to get started using them!

    When I enter my child's name in the upper left hand corner, it won't put the name in the center of the box, and cuts off the top of the first letter. It also won't let me use a pretty font...just the generic one. Any suggestions on what I need to do to be able to adjust the location of the name to the center of the box and use a pretty font?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Nikki! I don’t understand why it’s not centering; I’ve only had that problem if the name is too long. As for the fonts I used Honey Script (http://bit.ly/b2YsO), but I don’t think fonts can be changed sorry. I hope this helps :)

      Delete
    2. Oh I LOVE the font you use, and what is coming up is definitely not it. :( I tried inserting a screen shot of what happens when I enter the name, but it's not working. The names are 7 letters long. Not sure if that is too long or not. I will keep playing around with it.

      Delete
    3. Ahhh, I just figured it out. The form does not like Safari. I opened it in Google Chrome and it worked!!! Thanks for trying to help me figure it out, and thank you for the beautiful chart!! :)

  31. Been using these for about 3 months. So nice to not tell my kids what to do. If they get all chores done for the week they get $5. If they don't they loose $5 and also loose an activity they enjoy. Like staying up 1/2 hour later or extra 20 min on playstation. Thanks so much I love this and it's free and works perfect for us. I really appreciate that. I searched and searched and when I came across yours. It was perfect. Thanks for taking the extra time to help out so many families.

  32. Thanks for the free printables! I found the financial papers very valuable as well as these chore charts for my kids. I had made my own chart for them, but I love the style you did yours in. They are great and i love that they are editable. I am a teacher and a mom and would love to know what program you use to make your pdf's editable. thanks for sharing.

  34. Using this for my soon to be 2 year old. I typed in stuff he already does (feed the pets? Pick up his toys? Put his clothes in the hamper?) and stuff we want to keep track of (Did he eat every meal? Take a bath that day?). Later, I can replace tasks with more advanced tasks.

    I printed it out and put it in a picture frame I got from the Dollar Store. It's posted by his bedroom door with a dry erase marker. That way it's in sight and easier to remember, but out of his reach. :)

    I shared your link on my Facebook page for my friends to use!

  40. What program do you use to design all this stuff? I love it, but I'm not really a pastel person. I like more black and dark colors. I use Acrobat X all the time do make fillable forms, but I do a lot of designing in Word and it seems like there's probably a better program to use. Maybe you do tutorials or have used some good ones. (I'm just hoping.)
