Every family has work to do. No matter what needs to be done at your house, you can go faster and feel happier when you work together.

To divide work assignments between your family members, cut out the two circles and mount them on heavy paper. Look at the pictures, decide which jobs they’ll represent, and if you’d like, label them. On the small circle, write family members’ names in the blank spaces, dividing the spaces fairly between all family members.

Attach the small circle to the top of the big circle with a metal fastener so the top circle can turn (see illustration). Each week, rotate the top circle and do the jobs next to your name.
