5 Minutes For Mom: Cleaning and Organizing Tips for Kids

Looking for ideas on how to get your kids more involved in taking care of the household chores? We’ve got a few ideas for you.

This summer I implemented weekly chores for the twins’. For the past few years they’ve had to keep their bedrooms tidy, take care of their pets, and put their laundry away, but it was time for them to take on a new household chore. It needed to be something that they could earn a little weekly pocket money, learn some new responsibilities, and see what it takes to keep a house clean and tidy.

Plus, it’s one more thing to keep them off video games and doing something productive over the summer. So one of them is sweeping the wood and tile floors downstairs, and the other is cleaning up the mess in the yard from the dog.

Want some more tips for cleaning and organizing kids messes and spaces?

I’m sharing tips for keeping a kids bathroom clean and organized, and tips for easily cleaning up kids messes over at 5 Minutes For Mom.

I’ve had 3 children, 1 boy and 2 girls and all adults now. Other than the Clean Up Game, “PIck UP a 100 things”, the only one who I could get to do anything around the house was my boy. He didn’t do anything cheerfully either. He always complained that he was like Cinderella.
