We’ve talked before about chores for young children. Today, I would like to introduce you to a new game that has made sweeping the kitchen delightful for our younger children.
The Sweeping Game:
The Sweeping game is a simple way to make sweeping fun. Even my 2-1/2 year old has decided that he’s old enough to play this game.
*Twist my arm*
How to Play:
I taped a house pattern on to the floor using packing tape. You can get very creative with this and use patterned duck tape, or colored electrical tape. I worked with what we had on hand; thus the packing tape house that now adorns our kitchen floor.
- Have your child sweep the kitchen debris into your tape-made house. Naomi likes to make up stories while she sweeps. She calls the mess “dirt babies” that she must “get them home to their mommy!”
Easy. Fun. Try it!
