Washing of eating utensils and plastic plates is another chore you can add to your child's list when he turns five. In the kitchen, he can help in putting away the groceries. Start by having him place canned goods in the pantry, and vegetables in the proper refrigerator drawer.
Those who show an interest in cooking can start learning how to assemble simple salads as part of meal preparation.
At this age, your child should also be able to make his own bed.
