      I would think helping out with setting the table (maybe putting the

      silverware out, napkins, bringing condiments to the table, etc), making

      sure to pick up their own toys each day in the shared living spaces, as

      well as their own bedrooms, helping to pick up the living room, putting

      their own dirty clothing into thier own basket, that sort of thing.

      Easy to do every day things that teach them to pick up after themselves

      while also looking at it as a way to contribute to keeping the house

      clean and running smoothly.

      At that age, I would think allowance could be fairly small, maybe a

      quarter for each day, or a dime for each chore completed each day. Set

      up a piggy bank (I’d recommend using a mason jar so they can see the

      change being added, and adding up), and for each chore done at the end

      of the day, drop in the amount. They’ll physically see their

      money “grow”, and see the reward they can get.

      Of course, you don’t have to do an allowence, and I’d rather not start

      that debate back up, I’m just saying that if you want an idea, there’s

      one for that, too. 🙂
