Write out chores on slips of paper and fold them in half. Put them into small containers. Divide the containers into "Indoor" and "Outdoor" categories. The chores that take the least amount of time go into a color-coded container and those chores that take a lot of time go into a different container. During the week each child draws two chores to complete in addition to making the bed and picking up clothes. On weekends, choose from the container that has the time-consuming chores. Set a timer for 15-minute intervals and work steadily until the chore is done for either category.
