I started my children when they were 5, folding clothes on the coffee table......I gave them change to save in their piggy bank.  As they got older, they got a little more.  It depends on what you make.  You don't want to spoil them but teach them when you work you get paid.  As they got older more chores, doing the vacuum cleaner, take out th trash, rinse the dishes for the dishwaher or do them by hand.  Then when they became a little older, help me plant the garden and pick the veggie.  A little older rake the lawn.  Then when the little bank held no more took them to the bank to open an account.
