Quick house clean up #4: Pick Up All Toys. Kids can create a disaster area out of your house in less time than it takes for you to take a nap! Luckily, if you have children old enough to play with toys, they’re also old enough to put the toys away.
- This is one quick clean up that your kids can help you with! Put some music on and go for a “toy treasure hunt” with your kids.
- Give each child a trash bag or laundry basket and instructions to go through the house and pick up any toy not in its home. They should put the toys in their bag or basket until no more can be found.
- Offer different prizes for the “winner” (the child that finds the most toys) and the runners up.
- Then, mom gets to take the toys directly to the kids rooms and dump them into the toy boxes.
