Age Appropriate Chores For Kids

 

Age Appropriate Chores For Younger Kids - Ann Again and again Reviews

It’s wise to start teaching children to help around the house with assigned chores when they’re young.  It doesn’t need to be perceived as a punishment, taking care of the home you live in is a blessing!  Think about it, you have a home.  Show your children that cleaning is taking pride in your surroundings and yourself.  (I’m still working on having my teenager understand this *ahem*  Oh boy! ).  Below you’ll find a chart to help guide you to Age Appropriate Chores For Kids.  Print it out and post it in your home!

Of course, a child’s age doesn’t really define what chores are appropriate, but it can give a starting guideline. The physical, developmental, and emotional age of a child all make a difference. So be prepared to adapt the list.

Make it fun and don’t expect perfection.

 

After all, you want to encourage chore activities, not make your child(ren) frustrated or resentful. The more kids accept doing chores when young, the better the chance they will cooperate when older.

How To Clean Up After Kids During Summer Time Fun

Ann Again... and again Reviews How To Clean Up After Kids

With the return of Summer comes more chances for kids to create more messes in the home.  Try these kid-friendly cleaning tips from The Maids to help clean up messes such as bubble gum, crayon marks, dirt and grime and lipstick stains.  (Did you leave your make-up out in the open around your toddler?  Do it once, and you won’t make that mistake again ;-> ).  This gum cleaning tip came in handy when I forgot to check pockets before washing clothes.  ARGH!

  • Chewing Gum:  Whether it’s stuck on the bottom of your shoe or in a pocket, leave item in the freezer over night, then chip away.  For stubborn gum, use a small amount of paint thinner.
  • Crayon on the Walls:  As ingenious as your child’s art work may be, the best way to remove it from walls is to scrub it with a small amount of paint thinner and wipe away with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Playdough in the Carpet:  Place a large amount of dry cleaning solvent on a clean, white towel.  Leave the towel on the effected area for one minute, lift and gently rub the playdough away, moving towel in one direction.
  • Lipstick on your Wall (or collar ;-> ):  Little ones love to play with color where ever they find it, and if they’ve gotten into your purse, or make-up drawer, try this tip.  Scrape excess wax away with a spatula.  Pre-treat clothing with a small amount of dish washing liquid and rinse.  Mix a 1/3 part white vinegar to 2/3 parts water to gently blot stain away or wipe surfaces clean.
  • Dirt and Dust:  It’s everywhere!  Ask children to remove shoes before coming into the house to keep as many allergens outside as possible.  Vacuum entry ways often to remove allergy and asthma contaminants.
