Two Year Old Chores

Now that my little lady is getting up there in age I have decided to start making responsibilities a bigger part of her routine. She's already so independent. No need for all that independence to go to waste. Instead of trying to teach her how to complete activities I plan to teach her more about compliance. When Mommy asks you to do something you do it. That kind of thing...

Here is a list of some of the "chores" she's already doing and some that we'll be starting soon...

-Putting clothes in hamper before bath
-Putting shoes away
-Putting away toys and books
-Handing Mommy dishes from dishwasher (she loves helping with this. i take all sharp objects out before she starts helping.)
-Wipe off her area of the dinner table. (we use a soapy paper towel)
-Pick up spills
-Water plants with Mommy
-Separating laundry (teaches colors too!)
-Putting away groceries

I'd love to hear some of the ideas you have. What are some chore ideas you've tried with your toddler?


  1. oh no.... I haven't even thought about this yet. My LO just turned two on June 15th and he's such a silly boy that I probably spoil him too much! I have to come up with a plan for my little guy as well. Thanks for this!

    1. It's so hard not to spoil them!

  2. Putting clothes away in the hamper was one of the first chores I did with my toddler back when he was about 1.5 years old, and thankfully he still does it now a year later!

    1. I hope some of the "chores" she's doing now sticks!


Thank you for taking the time to chat with me!
