Chores For Kids Age 11 and Older
By the time your child hits middle school, they're going to be asking for more and more independence in terms of social life and schoolwork, so they should be able to handle doing larger-scale chores by themselves. All kids develop differently, but as your child ages from 11 and on, chores like doing laundry and packing lunches are things your tween and teen should be capable of in time. Here some other chores to consider for kids 11 and above:
- Clean their bathroom.
- Help clean the kitchen.
- Wash dishes.
- Clear the table and put dishes in the dishwasher.
- Mow the lawn.
- Shovel snow.
- Do laundry.
- Pack their school lunch.

- Watch younger siblings for short periods of time (depending on state law).
