Chores for 4 year olds

You may be wondering – what are some age-appropriate chores to give to a 4 year old? They’ll be eager to feel grown-up and help out as part of the family, especially if they have older siblings who are already getting regular chores. Don’t expect your 4 year old to be making dinner just yet, but there are some great household tasks they can help with. Although we include some average earnings for the tasks, keep in mind that each family is different. Many choose to make chores part of an allowance or reward system instead.
