Still there are some chores that seem to never end even if they are easier to do now than 50 years ago. Laundry, for example. Laundry is really never done. Dishes are another continual task. And of course there is always a bathroom to clean or a floor to sweep or a mess to wipe up.
With cleaning on my mind today, I thought I would share some of my favorite tips on cleaning with kids.
Many Hands Make Light Work
This morning Jon and I woke early with the baby at 6 a.m. He drove to the church to help set up chairs for stake conference. Men were meeting there at 6 a.m. to set up 900 chairs. When he got there at 6:30 half the parking lot was filled and they had been done for 15 minutes.
Basketball -- when picking up dirty clothes or putting stuffed animals in an open bin we can play a bit of basketball.
After 5 hours of cleaning this morning, our house is finally clean and we all get to play! I am always looking for ways to motivate my kids to clean so please share your favorite cleaning games and tips for kids!
