My daughter finds chore lists daunting, so I came up with the idea of creating chore cards: one chore per 3×5 index card. Somehow flipping through a pack of cards feels more doable than going down a list. (Great use for my laminating machine.)
I figured I'd Google to see if anyone else has done this, and I happened upon this amazing post, complete with printable cards and a description of how this family uses them. The beauty of the Internet.
