My 4yo son has his own "chores" to do. (I have always called my housework chores, too.) He earns a dollar a day for completing them. He can choose not to do his chores that day, we don't give him a hard time, but then he doesn't earn any money that day.
His chores are to set the table for dinner each evening, put away his laundry whenever it needs done and clean his room (with the help of me and his youner sister) once or twice a week. He helps with other things, too, but these things are his and he is proud of them.
We pay him on Sunday morning. He has to put half his earnings in the bank. The other half is for him to spend on whatever he wants, plus he has to use his own money to put in the offering plate at Sunday School. He chooses how much to give and it ranges from a penny to a dollar, depending on the day. He still doesn't truly understand how much each coin/ bill is worth yet, but he is learning.
He knows that daddy gets money for going to work and doing his chores there, if daddy doesn't work, he doesn't get money. Same for mommy, I have my own chores to do, too.
