Age Appropriate Chores for 2-3 year olds

I loved this list from Chocolate on My Cranium of age appropriate chores for 2-3 year olds.  I feel it's important to teach children to participate in the upkeep of a home and family.  And honestly, kids really do like to help out and feel that they are an important part of a family!  So here's the list:

Begin to dress self

Help make bed - at least pull up covers

Pick Up Toys

Hang clothing on hooks

Carry laundry to and from laundry area

Help fold towels

Empty light trash cans


Carry plate to sink after meals

Put silverware in dishwasher

Help feed animals

Help wipe up spills

Dry unbreakable dishes


Bring in newspaper

Mop a small area

Pour from a small pitcher

Pull weeds

Fetch diapers

Help pick up living room
