How to make an easy bucket chore chart for kids.
Any other parents out there struggle to get your kids to do chores?? I know I do!!! The kids argue about who has to do which chore, they complain about being tired and bored. However….I think it’s important for the kids to help out around the house, so I continue to assign chores and come up with ways to make it a little more interesting. I’ve tried just about every chore chart for kids out there.
My sister sent me a couple pictures of her brand new chore chart for her kids; and I LOVED it! I begged for her permission to let me share it with all of you!
My kids have been doing chores for years, but I think this Bucket Chore Bucket will be the perfect way to keep them motivated every day. I can’t wait to make my own!
It’s simple, it’s effective, it’s cheap, and it’s so cute! A few of my fave things!

What You Need:
It only takes a few supplies to put together this bucket chore chart. You can find them all on Amazon, or even the dollar store!
What To do:
With only a few quick steps you will have your bucket chore chart put together.
First, use your acrylic paint to paint the tips of each clothespin. Make sure to paint a different color for each child.
For example, if you have three kids you will paint ten clothespins blue, ten clothespins green and ten clothespins red.Use different colors for each child. My sister is using this bucket for three of her kids, so she has three different colors.
Next, write the chores you want your kids to complete each day on the clothespins. If you need some ideas for chores, check out my article Teaching Kids to Help with Family Chores.
Lastly, simply clip those clothespins on the bucket and you’re ready to go!
How It Works:
The beauty in this chore chart system is the simplicity!
Each day you will clip every clothespin onto the bucket. As your child completes each of their assigned chores they will simply grab their clothespin and drop it into the bucket!
As the parent you will be able to take a quick glance at the bucket to see if chores are done or not.
Once all the clips are in the bucket you will know the chores are done and the kids are ready for play!
I can’t wait to make this chore chart for my kids! Let me know if you make it too!
