We were having a little challenge with understanding the bigger picture idea of how you can have more time to play if you get your chores done quickly and without fussing.
Sometimes my children just seem to need a little visual aide, so I made a quick chart to explain this concept to them. They weren’t particularly happy with me at the time, but honestly I think it actually did help, and they have since referred back to it a few times asking me where I think they are on the chart.
Hopefully it can help you too. Click the image to download the pdf.
