13 Free Things to Do This Summer with Kids

How to Make Money as a SAHM


As Parents it can be a struggle to keep your kids on track with their chores. Even if there are only two or three things on each child’s list of “to do’s,” they can quickly fall off track with routinely completing each task. You can now download a “chore app” to keep your child motivated to help around the house! If your kids are like mine, they love being on an iPad or any other mobile device that has a fun app to play. By downloading one of these apps, they’ll be able to see their accomplishments and earn rewards as they go! Make it fun for them with one of these chore apps!

1. Chore Monster
