I wanted to take a minute today and talk about how we get Emmie involved in our home's cleaning schedule. I think it's so important to involve kids in the home maintenance process from an early age. Believe it or not, there are several items in Journey to Clean's schedule that can be done by children as young as 2! Starting your kids into daily cleaning habits at a young age teaches so much...responsibility, pride for belongings, routine, and completing tasks on time. It's something we're already doing with Emmie and will start with Jackson in a couple of years!
I've broken down a few ways you can get your kids involved in your home maintenance routine in the chart below. These tasks are taken directly from the cleaning schedules in Journey to Clean.
The chart I'm showing above can be used for one week. Simply outline the chores you expect of your child and check off as they are completed! Some chores don't need to be done daily, so I like to black out that day's box (just so the child will know that it isn't expected of them). We just check off as chores are finished, but stickers would be a fun motivator too.
You can print this chore chart by clicking the image below!
The printable above is made to match the Ultimate Planning Notebook. And, because I'm too matchy-matchy for my own good, if you're a Journey to Clean user, I've made this chart to match to your printables in the book too. Click the image below to download that one!
