For some reason, it took me a long time to realize that it wasn’t just for my benefit that I give my kids some responsibilities around the house, but for their benefit as well. They need to learn how to do jobs, and do them to the best of their ability, and this will benefit them their entire lives.
So I’ve been looking for products to help even the youngest ones to get the job done.
A small broom and dustpan set are perfect for younger kids to handle,
and sweep up little messes.
Mild but effective cleaning wipes are an easy way for little hands
to wipe counters or little spills.
(Choose ones that are safe for the ages of your children).
There are lots of options for dusting materials:
Disposable dusting mitts from the dollar store.
Washable dusting mitts, also from the dollar store.
A favorite of my kids is the Swiffer type dusters.
There is always the microfiber cloth.
Add a little inspirational music, and you and your children
can have fun getting the chores done!
