Do you ever have this problem?
Not only is the house a mess but we usually only clean it up at the end of the day before my husband comes home from work. (Anyone else make a mad dash through the house before your Hubby comes home?)
I did discover a little trick to get the kids (happily) involved in the clean-up process. It’s a game actually.
I invented a game to make the kids clean faster. OK, maybe I didn’t actual “invent” this game, but it really works. I call it Pandora Pick-Up.
(I blogged about it forever ago at MyEverythingElse.com for anyone who use to follow me over there. Since that blog doesn’t exist, I thought I’d share it with you here.)
I turn on an upbeat song on my phone (I like to use my Pandora app) and we race the song to get the room clean. I help too. We get as much done as we can, sometimes even vacuuming.
We keep score. If we get the room clean before the end of the song, we get a point. If the song runs out, Pandora gets a point!
In less than 15 minutes we can get the whole house tidied up! Fabulous!
