We have a chore time in the morning, basics like make your bed, put dirty clothes in the hamper, and sweep under the kitchen table. Generally anything on the pre-K kid's list is really "Help mom" do whatever chore. He helps me make his bed, he helps me sweep, he helps pick up his toys. We have two chore times for 15-20 minutes each time and I'd say he's really doing something about 5-10 minutes of each and the rest he's playing.
