Tips in Making Chores a Fun Activity with KidsFebruary 20, 2020
Chores can totally be a real headache, especially if there are a lot of things you needed to get done with. And sometimes, it can also be really boring and a bit tiring.
So to make sure that you still have the energy to do all your chores, then check out these few tips we have for you that not only you can do but as well as your children at home!
I mean, it is not bad dancing while you are making chores on a seemed to be a long weekend.
Sing a Song
Singing a song while washing dishes, putting away toys, or wiping up messes can make time go by faster and helps make the task less of a chore or job. You can make up a song using rhyming words such as queen and clean or king and thing.
Who knows? You may even make up a song that is used every time your child cleans and becomes a fun memory that can be passed down to their kids in the future.
Make it a Competition
This tip is a no-brainer. Kiddos love to race against the clock or each other to be the winner! Making chores a competition can help speed up the process of putting away toys and more.
It may even help keep you sane because we’ve all had moments where your child is not enthused and is dragging out the task you asked of them. Set a timer on your phone with a fun alarm sound, bring out the kitchen timer, or simply countdown aloud for your children.
Dance it Out
This tip can tie into Sing a Song, but who doesn’t love to wiggle while they work? Dancing while doing chores can help exercise your kids by increasing their heart rate and working up a little sweat, put a smile on your child’s face, and (again) help the time go by faster. Use YouTube or Pandora for free kid-friendly music to play.
Make a Chore Chart
Making a chore chart will help hold your kids accountable for their chore responsibilities. Come up with your own system or find ideas on Pinterest.
