Chores - How old, and which ones?

Do your children have chores that they are responsible for? Mason and Audrey both help me out with a few things, and they have a chore chart. I love the flexibility of our chore chart - it has magnets that have all different chores on them (feed the dog, clear the table, clean your room) and each chore has a different monetary value. They can pick and choose which chores they want to do each day. On days where I really need them to do certain things, I'll pull off all the other chores and only leave the ones that I absolutely need done. As they do a chore, the magnet gets moved from the chore board onto their own board and at the end of the day we "cash out" and move all the magnets back to chore board as I give them the money. They are also allowed to trade in their chores for screen time if they would like.

How old are your children and how do you get them to help around the house?
