Child Labor! AKA Practical Life Tips

I'm clearing out some books and scanning key pages that I wanted to save even though I didn't love the whole book. First up, the list of age-appropriate chores from Barbara Curtis' Small Beginnings book. I haven't seen anything like this elsewhere, but I'm finding that developmentally targeted lists (of books, chores, activities, projects) are invaluable. You can work out the pace yourself, but you know which age to target.

Anyway, here's the list of age-appropriate chores, part one (age 1.5 to 4) and here's list of age-appropriate chores, part two (age 5 to 10). Enjoy. :)


  1. Interesting... My almost year old does the things on the list except open a can.
