Dailydish - Make chores a family affair

Filed under: Toddlers Preschoolers, Chores

Have each family member tackle his or her task list at the same time.

The family members who do their chores together perhaps get to spend more time together afterwards. Assign everyone his or her task(s) and then get to it. Pick a day of the week and time suitable for everyone and then have at it. Chances are the chores will be finished more quickly and doing so will be more fun. Celebrate afterwards with a reward that can be enjoyed by all, such as fresh cut watermelon or a trip to the pool.

Even young family members can take part in the family chores scenario. My toddler loves to Swiffer, so I put a new sheet on the Swiffer and let him hit the hardwood floors while I vacuum or do the windows in the same room so I can keep an eye on him.
