Kid's Allowance Ideas
- 50 Pins
Kids doing chores. Kids had work to do around the house, some got paid an allowance, some basically had to do it as part of staying alive and fed (lol). But, it taught us responsibility (you can't go until you cut the grass), how to do a job right (you did half the job, go back out and do it again until you get it right), and trained us for when we got our own place to live. Kids today need some chores.

To teach his children how to think properly about money, he gave each of them three jars. Whenever they received an allowance, or money from doing chores, or a gift of money, they had to divide it into thirds: One part to spend, one part to save, and one part to give to others. Simple but so rewarding in many ways ♥

A giving box. Kids take money from their allowance and put it in the giving box, when toys for tots or some other philanthropic venture comes along, money is there to purchase toys and give.

Family Giving Box - Families with Purpose
For my husbands birthday I like to help the kids give him gifts of time. I let them give him giftcards or tickets to Fun Centers, Movie Theaters, Sporting Events, etc so they can go PLAY with Daddy. (This year we got a good one but I can't tell what it is due to the off chance that he may read this before his birthday on the 27th!) It is so much easier than trying to let them pick a regular gift out and more FUN too!
Allowance Idea - If the kid does his/her chores then they get to make a deposit and my husband will match it

Birthday gift game: A few months ago I was sitting in my car at parent pick up and I happened upon this amazing article in my Family Fun magazine. It is called The Present Game. It is a great way to help your kids to learn how to receive a gift and be kind and gracious about it (My kids were not very good at this at Christmas time!). Here is how I did it. First I gave my kids each a beautifully wrapped gift. Then I gave them the rules. First you have to give a sincere thank you for the gift. Then you open it and pay a compliment to the giver, adding in why you like it or what you can do with it. (I also let them know that these items were just for fun, not really for keeps.) Inside the packages were silly items like a plastic cup, a measuring spoon, and an unsharpened pencil. I am sure my kids had grand expectations from these beautifully wrapped presents so it was great fun to see them open the gifts to find something silly. When my son received the pencil he really thought about the gift, then gave me an appropriate compliment like "I love this pencil, I can use it for my homework!" Then, when my daughter opened her single purple sock and seemed stumped as to what compliment to pay me, my son whispered to her, "Thanks, Mom, purple is my favorite color!" They had a great time when I then let them go "shopping" around the house for each other AND they did a great job finding nice things to say to each other about each gift. I was ecstatic that they were getting this!! It is exactly how I imagine them acting when receiving a gift from someone. That is why I thought we should practice at every birthday! I added it onto our Birthday Countdown Board activities so that I wont forget.

Wee Laddie wants an allowance (plus all the back allowance I owe him from when he got it before...ha!). Maybe this'll help me figure out how he can earn some. It's a list of age-appropriate chores.

AGE APPROPRIATE CHORES FOR CHILDREN Best Chores for Kids and Teens The best chores for children are those that they can do, and do well. Or in other words, the chores that work best are age appropriate chores. When deciding what chores to assign to your child, you should not only just consider what needs to be done around the house but you should also focus on the positive aspects of chores. Among other things, these include building self-esteem and contributing to the family. Setting age appropriate chores means that you can't give a 5 year-old the chore of mowing the lawn (just be patient - they grow up fast). And it doesn't mean letting your preteen skate by with just picking up his sports gear. You need to match the chores to the kids. Here are some suggestions by age to get you started. Age Appropriate Chores for Toddlers - Ages 2-3 Surprise! Even kids this young can do basic tasks to help around the house. Focus on making these kids' chores things that are part of everyday life instead of just being weekly extra tasks. Options for kids this age: Picking up and putting away toys Dressing themselves and putting dirty clothes in hamper Helping clean up spills (there should be plenty of opportunities for this one) Dusting (best done with a microfiber cloth or a Swiffer duster) Age Appropriate Chores for Children - Ages 4-6 At this age, kids may even like to help around the house (Ah, what a magical time). Be sure to consider this when assigning chores. Suggestions for the best chores for children this age: Any of the chores for the younger ages Cleaning their rooms Making their beds Helping fold or put away simple laundry (e.g. towels, their own socks and underwear, etc.) Setting and clearing the table Emptying trash around the house Watering outside plants and garden Age Appropriate Chores for Kids - Ages 7-9 With some basic chore skills under their belts plus the advantage of being a few years older, kids in this group are ready for more responsibility and the next level of chores. Ideas for kids this age: Any of the chores for the younger ages Sorting laundry for washing Sweeping floors (and maybe even vacuuming depending on the relative size of both your child and your vacuum cleaner) Weeding the garden or flower beds Helping put away groceries Preparing simple breakfasts and lunches (e.g. pouring own cereal and making sandwiches) Age Appropriate Chores for Preteens and Teens This is where age appropriate chores can make a real difference in how smoothly (or not) the house is run. The chores that kids in this age group can do start to get more and more into those things that you might even pay others to do. And they are likely to be more specific to your own family's needs, interests, and situation rather than encompassing a universal checklist. The key is to remember the purpose of chores in the first place. Ideally, chores help teach your child responsibility and they help make managing a household more manageable. Also keep in mind that your child will one day be an adult and will be responsible for doing everything that you, as an adult, do right now. The target then should be that by the time they're 18, they should not only know what the responsibilities are in running a household, but how to meet those responsibilities as well. That doesn't mean you should heap everything on them in their early teens. But it does mean that you should be consciously aware of opportunities to increase their responsiblities (or at least rotate them) so that they gain the necessary and valuable experiences that will help them transition into successful adulthood. Additional Age Appropriate Chores Resources Check out our chore charts to get additional ideas for your kids. And, if you have a teen where a simple chore chart doesn't seem to quite fit anymore, be sure to check out a couple of valuable resource pages: common chores for teens and teen chore contracts. And if you're looking for a simple but effective solution (i.e. no headaches!) to implementing a sucessful teen chore program, definitely check out Teen Chore Success.
Keeping control of snacking. Love, love, love this idea to give the kids a snack allowance and then have them cash in for their snacks.

There is a split among parents and among family-finance experts over this question. In a Big Issues debate in The Wall Street Journal, Neale Godfrey, founder of Children's Financial Inc., and Jon Gallo, head of the family-wealth practice group of Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger and co-founder of Gallo Consulting, a family-focused financial-advisory firm, discuss the question of whether a child's allowance should be tied to doing chores.
