The best chore apps for kids put a technological spin on the traditional chore charts for children. They help to organize tasks with ease and help to streamline the chore and reward process. These are the apps that make chores less “painful” for kids.

Some apps create a way for parents to assign and track children’s chores, often in a fun way where kids can level up and earn rewards for being chore champions. That is fun for kids and can get them excited about doing chores. We also found apps that include the ability to track more than chores with things like pocket money added to the mix and other apps focus on general good behavior, like sharing and working hard. Spend a few minutes checking out these awesome chore apps and get busy helping your kids completing chores and claiming rewards.
