Elementary School Ages
Children in elementary school (ages 7, 8, 9 and 10) are old enough to help care for their younger siblings with adult supervision. For example, a 7-year-old girl can keep her baby sister occupied while Mom and Dad tend to things around the home.
Other chores elementary school–aged children can tackle:
  • Helping with laundry
  • Helping to prepare dinner
  • Setting the table
  • Loading the dishwasher
  • Drying dishes
  • Helping to clean the backyard with an older brother or sister
