Recently, my girls had to clean their room and it was a real mess so the girls decided to create a fun game to get it all done. I ended up helping too because we had let it go too long. But it is a lot better. Today, I wanted to share with you what they did so that maybe it will encourage you to do the same or something similar and make cleaning a little more fun! By the way its still not perfect yet and needs improvement; so don't think we are this super perfect, got it all together family, we definitely are not. I live with a lot of chronic pain and have to take it easy most of the time so we focus on the things that do get done and try to make the most of them.
Here is what they did:
They made a large game card with a picture of the item or group of items that they were to pick up and just put them in a stack and each person got a turn drawing a card from the stack and they all worked together on that group of items that needed to be put away or cleaned up.
You can make cards that work good for your situation and maybe add lamination or use card stock. The girls just used what they had and had a good time doing it. They developed some of their working together skills and one was the artist another a idea person and another a great color-er!
Here are some pictures!
If you do this too maybe you can blog about it or send me pictures. We would love to see your creativity! Blessings to your family!
