Now that my kids are getting older, one of my resolutions is to have my kids help out around the house more. I have tried various chore charts through the years, but I always manage to not follow through with their chore routine. It takes effort to make chores (and chore charts) happen, and I am determined to make it work this time!
In the past, I’ve made the process too complicated, so I am simplifying it as much as possible. Each of my kids will have certain chores they are expected to complete every day. I also decided to put their chore charts in the bathroom so there is no avoiding them. They will see them several times during the day and hopefully we can maintain these chore charts!
I created a simple chore cart for my kids, and I am sharing the free printable with you:

I found frames from the dollar store and spray painted them to match their bathroom (Lena has a fancy gold frame in her bathroom). I wrote their daily chores on their charts and framed them. The kids mark off their chores using a dry erase marker on the glass which doesn’t require a new printout until the chores change.
My boys are 9 and 11 and share their own bathroom. One of their daily chores is to make sure their bathroom is clean. I recently discovered Scentiva, and it’s perfect for the boys to maintain a clean bathroom.
It offers the strong power of Clorox clean with an amazing scent for an all-in-one solution. I purchased Hawaiian Sunshine (the perfect way to brighten these freezing January days) from Target, but it also comes in Tuscan Lavender and Jasmine.
I put my boys to work and love that Scentiva is available in both spray and wipes. Not only does it kill 99.9% of viruses & bacteria, but it cleans, disinfects and deodorizes. Scentiva is a great product for people who struggle with the trade-off between products that clean well or just cover up odor. Scentiva really does smell good and definitely isn’t overpowering.
I’m teaching the boys to clean up any bathroom “misses.” Say goodbye to the pee smelling toilet area.
Scentiva is easy to use and and really smells great. Cleaning is almost fun!
