Summer is the stuff dreams are made of for kids: staying up late, sleeping in and endless amounts of fun. But just because school’s out that doesn’t mean the kiddos can’t keep maintain some normalcy in the form of chores. We’ve rounded up some fun ways to incorporate responsibility with summer chore charts!

Basic tasks like making your bed, getting dressed and spending time reading are all easy things that will give kids a sense of accomplishment without overwhelming their day. They can check off their “to do list” and get outside to enjoy the summer sun!
