I won’t list who does what as these jobs are very flexible and we often work together in order to get through things quickly.  I use this time as on the job training rather than specific drill training like our regular day chores are.  Ultimately I’d like the kids to be able to do these chores by themselves (and some can do some of them already) but it is a family chore time rather than individual.

 

Veranda – Furniture, Sweep, walls, toys/sports gear

Air-conditioners, Fans

Windows

Cobwebs

Vacuum, Mop

Showers, Bathtub

Clean Lounge Suite

Bedroom – Sheets, under beds, wardrobes

Paper piles
