Simple Chores for Kids

Choose to make chores fun with The Chores Box from The Idea Box Kids!

Inside The Chores Box, you will find simple, everyday chores that children can accomplish easily.

Your child will love reaching in and choosing a coin/chore from the box. After choosing a couple of coins from the box, put on some music & clean!

Keep things low stress, set your expectations to “child” and watch your little helper have fun doing their “surprise” chore.

Most of the chores require very little assistance from an adult. You will not find big, time consuming chores in the Chores Box or chores with items that you wouldn’t find in every house…like a bidet. Inside the box, you will not find “set the table for dinner” or “do the laundry” as the time of day you choose to do the chores might not work with the chore chosen. The goal is for the chore to be something simple that your child can accomplish easily and help contribute to the running of the house.

Chores require no chemical cleaners, just water and a rag, or a sock to dust with, broom, etc.

As with our other Idea Boxes the emphasis is on keeping the chores as child-led as possible. The cleaning may not be done perfectly…but, they did it themselves! This will give a great boost to your child’s self-esteem and sense of accomplishment, which will carry over into other areas of their lives and have positive, lasting effects.

Here are just a few of the chores you will find in the box:
•Wipe down countertops
•Spot Buster: Look for dirty spots to wipe clean
•Dust w/socks on hands
•Find items to recycle
...and, many more!

When you bring out the Chores Box, your child will look forward to helping out around the house!

Every so often we get a request to alter or change the wording on our product labels... to personalize it for the recipient in some way. We would love to accommodate these requests, however, we do not offer custom labeling, personalization, or change the name of our product in any way.
Our Idea Boxes are tested per CPSIA regulations for sale in the US, AUS & NZ only. For children's products (ages 12 & under), testing is required for *every* country a shop ships to. As we are able to test for more countries, you will see those countries added onto the shipping options in our store. It's not because we do not want to ship to you, rather, we choose to comply with all safety & legal regulations that are set by your country for children's products.
Yes. We specifically chose the size of the coins we use in each Idea Box because they exceeded the requirements set by the CPSIA. There are two different sizes of coins we use: Large, chunky coins are in the boxes for ages under 3, and our standard sized coins are in the boxes for ages 3 and over. Each Idea Box has been CPSIA lab-tested specifically for the age group listed on each product label.

Note: Idea Boxes are not a toy. We discourage children from playing with the coins in any way.
We are unable to guarantee delivery dates or transit times on any order. The delivery dates/transit times that we receive from the USPS are estimates only. This applies to rush/expedited orders as well.
