How do you make a fun chore chart for kids?

One of the main reasons that chore charts work is that they are a visual and fun way to chart progress and give recognition. Keep chore charts colorful, lively and full of positive reinforcement! A chore chart can be a gamification of daily chores which is always a motivator for those kids who love competition (even if it is with themselves).
