Toddlers enjoy being helpful and you should nurture their enthusiasm, even if you don't honestly welcome their help!  Getting young toddlers helping out with chores will give them a great sense of satisfaction, even if the quality of their work may not quite be up to scratch.  Having them help out around the house will grow self-esteem and a sense of responsibility.

Don't worry if they don't complete tasks to the standard, or even in the manner, that you hope for and expect, it's simply good that they are doing what they can.  They will also need reminding to do their chores, but after a while they will fall into a routine.  Heap on the praise as they complete their tasks.

Here are ten ideas for chores that you can have toddlers do for you:-

  1. Dusting around the house with a duster, feather duster or even an old sock on their hand
  2. Picking up their toys and tidying their bedroom
  3. Helping to clear up fallen leaves in the garden
  4. Putting dirty clothes in the laundry basket
  5. Sorting light and dark clothes before they are washed
  6. Pairing up cleaned socks
  7. Putting shoes away neatly
  8. Setting the table
  9. Feeding your pets
  10. Putting away clean cutlery from the dishwasher

Why don't you create a sticker chart at ToucanLearn and reward with a sticker every time your little one helps out around the home?
