3 Ways To Get Your Kids Involved In Cleaning!

Managing a household is practically a full-time job, and many parents have jobs outside of the home as well. A great way to strengthen family bonds and get housework done is to involve every family member in the process—yes get your kids to help you clean! They may resist at first, but these ideas from around the web are likely to get them excited about helping out around the house.

  1. Create a Kid Cleaning Kit! San Francisco based photographer Kaley wrote a great post for Modern Parents Messy Kids (see it here) on how to create a cleaning kit that will excite kids about their new responsibility. (Picture from Modern Parents Messy Kids)
  2. Have a place for everything. This tip comes from a great post on cleaning with serenity and calm (click here to read it) from the blog Wordplayhouse.                                                                 
  3. Create a chore chart to keep them focused and track their progress. You can use the free chore chart from Goalforit, use one of these free printable chore charts from Moms Who Think (they are even organized by age group), or create your own fun system like the one shown below.

How do you get your kids involved in household chores?
