Let’s Clean House – Cleaning With Kids – 2 FREE Printable Chore Lists
Want to teach your kids how to help around the house with daily tasks and chores? Make it fun and easy for them to help out! Today I’m sharing a little cleaning checklist that I made for my kids to help clean right along with me. One is a picture version and one is a word version, perfect for different ages. The tasks are simple and most are appropriate for preschoolers on up through middle and high school. This could be used daily or weekly, depending on what works for your family and schedule.
(Obviously, you know your children and know what they can/cannot do on this list, this is merely a suggestion and starting point. Please use care to provide non-toxic cleaners or water in a spray bottle for your children.)
KIDS CLEANING SUPPLY SUGGESTIONS:
- microfiber cloths
- baby wipes
- hand vacuum
- water or non-toxic cleaner in a spray bottle
- small cleaning caddy – the one pictured is from Target – it’s actually a silverware caddy
I printed out the FREE Let’s Clean House printable on white card stock and cut it in half. Then, I cut them the paper in half and laminated the chore cards. I put a dry erase marker in the bucket for my kids to check off their chores as they complete them. Then, once the tasks are completed they can wipe off the marker and it’s all set for the next round of ‘Let’s Clean House’.
Have you seen my shop? It’s full of organizing printable goodness!
