There are a lot of things she can help with! Cleaning her room/picking up toys is a good one. My boys both started feeding the dogs around this age. Also, clearing the table should be fairly easy. I find that a chore chart is the best way to keep things organized and expectations understood. We discuss chores together and print up a list that is posted on the fridge. My boys get a sticker for each day that they complete their chores and then they get a special treat once they get a certain number of stickers.

Feeding any animals, picking up their room/toys, helping to unload the dishwasher, dusting with a Swiffer. I'm paying mine $1 a week to keep their rooms clean, we'll see how that works.
