Susan here… As part of our campaign to Celebrate Everyday Messes with Bissell, we want to share some tips to make cleaning more fun for your kids.
Do your kids like to clean? Do you want some ideas for how to make it more fun for you and your children?
In this video, my 8 year old Julia and my 6 year old niece Olivia help me share 5 fun tips for cleaning with kids…
5 Tips for Cleaning with Kids
- Embrace your child’s natural desire to clean.
My girls like to clean up their own rooms so that they can find “special homes” for all their toys.
- Keep the organization system simple.
You want your kids to know where their toys should go and be easy to put away.
- Turn cleaning into a game.
Kids love to play and if you can make cleaning a bit of a game, you’ll all have more fun.
- Help your kids not to get overwhelmed.
If they have too many toys in their rooms, you may want to have a bin where you rotate some toys in and out every few months.
- Make vacuuming easier by having kids pick up toys off the floor.
If your children are little, you may even turn it into a game where the bed is a boat and the toys are fish or luggage they need to bring with them on board.
When you make it fun, cleaning becomes a lot easier!
Do you have any secrets to encourage your children to help you with housework?
