It’s time for Spring Cleaning and it’s a family affair around here! I’ll let you in on a sneaky little secret on how I manage to clean my house with a toddler and preschooler around. I get them in on the action and they actually LOVE it. I created a fun dice game, so they can clean along with me instead of making more messes for me to clean up (because that’s what toddlers and preschoolers do). They are so into it, they ASK to play the cleaning game almost daily. Household chores are a wonderful way to teach children practical life skills and fine motor skills. I recommend keeping the task age or skill level appropriate and keeping things positive. Happy cleaning! 

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Head to Walmart and stock up on all your spring cleaning necessities! Viva® Big Roll Paper Towels, Cottonelle® Toilet Paper Double Rolls and Scott® 1000 Bathroom Tissue all got put in my cart. Viva Vantage has a scrubby texture (perfect for shining stainless steel appliances and glassware) and Viva Towels are super soft (perfect for dusting baseboards and furniture), both are very durable. Cottonelle has CleanRipple Texture, which basically means it rocks at cleaning! Scott® 1000 bathroom tissue is our go to brand that’s long lasting and high quality.

Step 5: Take turns rolling the dice and direct your child to the task that the dice lands on. You can adjust the chores depending on the child’s age. You can set a timer for each task, so the kids fully complete a chore before moving on to the next dice roll. Sometimes I’ll award my kids with stickers or those temporary tattoos after every completed task. Make it fun, age appropriate and don’t expect perfection! Many toddlers and preschoolers can put away toys (make sure to sing a clean up song with them), dust, sweep and water plants. Older children might be able to vacuum, load the dishwasher and fold laundry.

Step 6: As your kiddos are occupied, you can get some heavy spring cleaning done! I have to admit, the dice rolling is even fun for adults!
