    Sometimes I find that breaking it up into a few 5 minute cleans helps with stubborn/overwhelmed kids and big messes :) I just set my timer on my phone and give my son two or three tasks to do at a time before my phone beeps. He gets a reward if he is faster than the clock. :)

    I really like the idea of turning cleaning into a game. Everybody likes to have fun! Why not have fun while cleaning. Great concept here!!!

    I’m always up for ways to make cleaning FUN…haha! As much as my two year old loves to help vacuum, I’m wishing I had invested in the toddler vacuum that actually works!!

    I learned that the kids would cooperate with a little back up and fun.

    We love to turn up music and make it a cleaning party.

      Music is such a great way to get moving both for kids and adults. I need to use this trick more often.

    True! I remember wanting to feel “useful” as a child. Whenever I was our car, my son would hold the hose. Of course, he does it when he hasn’t taken a bath yet. And it would be so much fun!

    I’ll have to pass this on to my grown children so they can have fun cleaning with my grand children, thanks!

    I have another interesting tip, if you have more than one kids. Make competition between them for doing some task. It will create a fun, and also your kids will not disturb your if you are doing some other cleaning.

    Great ideas – turning it into a game (using a timer and rock music and a prize for the winner) was the key for getting my kids to clean up. Doesn’t work so well on the oldest now that he’s 17 though… *sigh*

      Ha ha… yes, everything gets tougher when they are teenagers. I’m not looking forward to those days.
