Printable Bedroom Cleaning Checklist for Kids

Do you ever have a hard time getting your kids to clean up their rooms?

Normally, my kids are rockstars at doing chores. They pitch in around the house constantly and thank goodness – I could never keep up without their help.

Unfortunately, just because they know how to clean doesn’t mean they do it properly all the time.

Lately little things were being ignored and the bedrooms just weren’t getting picked up to my satisfaction. So I whipped up a quick printable so they can check their own work in cleaning their rooms and there will be no more “confusion” about what counts as a “clean” bedroom.

    Cleaning rooms is part of the kid’s Saturday morning chores. They each get 4 chores and have them for a year, then we trade jobs in January. Each child gets a bathroom, their room, the living room, family room or kitchen, and a few trash cans. We’ve been doing it this way for a few years now and it works for us.

      Thanks, Janell! My kids aren’t normally allowed to eat in their rooms either but lately glasses have been sneaking in there somehow so that’s why that’s listed. I hope you find it useful
