How To Get The Kids Helping Around The House

starting small just by asking your children to pick up their plates and glasses and follow you to the sink is a great idea, they’ve watched you wipe the table up after them time and time again simply giving them a wet wipe or wet cloth and letting them have a try is a good idea. We like initiating a little reward system for good things done. Star charts are a great idea- every good deed or chore done gets another star and a certain amount of stars leads to a treat or even a present. A treat in the form of chocolate or sweets are a good idea and as a big present a BuildABear or a toy.

Moreover, fun bonding activities that can teach your kids to help out is baking or smoothie making- this gets them involved and engaged and you can let them help clean up a bit. Keep it simple and creative. With kids, a little goes a long way, such as sprinkles, decor and other fun baking goods. If you have multiple kids initiating one kid bakes for the rest once a week is exciting and adds something to look forward to for all of them. We love a good incentive but not too many or over the top otherwise they simply start doing the chores only for the reward, remember that we want these to be things they do for themselves.
