I think Katie is old enough for some chores. She just started deciding she needed to make her bed (yes, on her own) over the last week. She also helps load the washer and dryer, starts the dishwasher, feeds Sadie, puts her dirty clothes in the hamper, puts her dirty dishes in the sink, and will clean the table and sweep the floor. My mom has been saying that I should do a star chart with her each week...I had one when I was little and did very well with it. Since Katie acts just like I did as a wee one, I think my mom may be onto something. If you have a 3 or 4 year old, what are some chores they so around the house? I'm thinking the ones I listed above are a good starting point but am interested to hear some more ideas!
