It’s spring cleaning season! Last year, I wrote an article called “This Is the Last Spring Cleaning You Will Ever Need to Do” and now a year later, it has proven itself! I don’t have anything “BIG” to clean! Ever since I decluttered my house, I actually use everything I own and keep things in good shape. So when spring cleaning time comes around, I just need to wipe down some shelves and clean the windows. If you haven’t read the article, definitely give it a go.
Spring cleaning with kids is a whole different ball game. It may not be easy, but if you can add a sprinkle of fun, kids might actually volunteer to spring clean! So how do you make cleaning fun? It almost sounds like an oxymoron. Well, one thing for certain is that kids love colorful things and they love activities. I got 4 colorful and fun ways to get your kids excited about spring cleaning and decluttering. These activities will help kids learn about organization and responsibility and feel empowered to do anything they want.
1. Toy Organizational Labels
Kids leaving their toys all over the place? No problem. Get your kids to color in their own toy category labels and let them stick the labels on storage bins. Before you know it, they will actually want to put toys away in the right place.
2. Kids Closet Organizational Labels
Empower your kids to pick and put away their own clothes. These color coded clothes labels will help kids sort clothes by categories. They can also color in their own labels.
3. Kids Chore Labels
Doing chores may not be the most exciting way to spend time, but if you create a fun and cute chore system, kids might actually jump at it because it will feel like a game rather than a task. Kids (2-10+) can learn to take on responsibilities and start to develop a chore routine with these cute chore labels.
4. Kids Morning / Evening Job Chart
For toddlers and preschoolers, giving them a daily chore charts to follow might be just the thing. They can learn to establish a simple chore routine and once they are comfortable, they can advance to the chore labels mentioned above.
