Flylady Friday: For the Kids and Father’s day ideas

I have lots of friends with kiddos out of school for the summer.  I think that Flylady has some really unique ways to get the kids involved in clean up.  She sends out daily assignments for the kids and they are really fun.

June 13th challenge went as follows

Hi Kids!
Today I want you to open up the doors of your closet and check to see if you have any clothes that have fallen off of the hangers and havebecome jumbled up on the floor of the closet.Set a timer or ask a grown up to set a timer for 5 minutes and see how much you can hang back up. If you can’t reach the rod to hang these things back up, ask a taller person to give you some hangers, you then hang the clothes on the hangers, and ask that tall person to help you hang them up. If you need to set the timer again, then do so for another 5 minutes. If you find some things that no longer fit or you do not use, put those in a bag and give them to Mom or Dad to bless someone else with.

Remember less stuff to clean and put away means more time to play.

Have fun!

I know that getting kiddos to clean is always a challenge, but we just have to find clever ways to make cleaning fun.  Timers and choices allow for lots of fun!

A friend of mine is a foster mother and her home is full of little boys.  Sometimes this can make her cleaning job more difficult.  So, she gives them a “helper” task.

The littlest one is three and she gives him a norwex microfiber cloth and lets him clean anything, but the TV that he chooses.  He loves being a helper and the norwex magic really does help her home stay clean.  There are no chemicals and he really can’t hurt a thing.  What could be better?  The walls became amazingly clean as this little guy got right to work.

Father’s Day

We at TrishaTrixie Designs have not forgotten dad.  Feel free to stop by our site to find lots of great ideas for dad.

Does dad like to clean?  My dad always enjoyed cleaning his car and making it shine.  Norwex has some fun products for dad.  The dust mitt works great for dusting of the inside of the car and the leather cleaner will do wonders for cleaning up leather seats in your car!

No matter what you decide we hope you have a Happy Father’s Day!
