This summer I’m starting out organized!
So, I’ve put together baskets like these (these are also really fun if you like color and smiley faces!) and added some simple checklists which we’ve made available for you guys to use too. Either print the paper and laminate it or print off a stack and hand a new sheet to your child when it’s chore time.
I keep the baskets in my laundry room ready for the kids to pull off the shelf and I like to laminate the printables and stick them to the basket with these velcro strips.
The cleaning supplies for each room stay in the basket along with disposable wipes and the necessary cleaning cloths or paper towels. Not only does this keep me organized, but it also helps the kids get right to work.
There’s something very ‘adult’ about having your own supplies for the job. I’ve found that my kids stay on task and take their jobs seriously.
This summer, try putting together a kids’ cleaning kit of your own (or one for each room!). You can organize it like a weekly chore or when the kids get bored, just pull out a basket and put them to work.
