This board game is fully customizable. You can write down the chores and then the reward. As each child does the chores, they get to advance in this game.

This game is geared for older kids, maybe those age 4 and up. So, if your child is a toddler, you might want to start with one of the above charts now, and then consider buying this for when they get a little older. The reviews on this are very positive. It apparently works well for kids who don't like doing chores!

      I love the Melissa and Doug chart. We have it at our home. Yes. I believe in rewarding children for doing chores. I pay them (just like we are paid for our work) and require them to save a certain percentage for savings that goes to the bank every week.
