One of the messiest rooms in our home is the playroom. No matter how hard we try, our son LOVES to get into everything. His toys are everywhere: in the kitchen, in the bedroom, in the BATHROOM. He is old enough to learn how to put things away, and today brings a new set of responsibilities: playroom chores! I promise to make sure that we keep our little home tidy with the help of this printable chore chart and a way for parents and children to see eye to eye on putting their toys away after playtime! I also have a solution for lunchtime that everyone will love!
While we may not see eye to eye on chores, we both can agree on a lunchtime option that everyone is happy about. I recently discovered Lunchables Organic which is USDA certified organic, and has no artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.*
You can find them at your local Target, Meijer, select Albertsons and Safeway stores.
We love the extra cheesy pizza, and my son likes that he can prepare it on his own.
He is so proud of himself when he “cooks!”
Lunchables Organic is the perfect compromise for us. Whether it’s a Saturday snack or a lunchtime option for school, we do finally see eye to eye on something!

Chore Chart Compromise
There are FIVE main responsibilities for our playroom that I am going to hold my son, my husband, and myself accountable for each day. They are quite simple really: pick up toys, sweep, dust, wipe down any toys/counters that need attention, and MOP.
To start with getting our playroom organized, I created a “Playroom Perfect” chore chart. I listed six days of the week and the five main goals for the day: pick up, sweep, dust, wipe, and mop. I laminated it and hung it in our playroom to hold us accountable. Just use a dry erase marker and you’re good to go!
Our playroom has a lot of floor traffic since it’s also where our dogs play, eat, and nap. So, daily mopping is necessary to keep our floors free of debris.
