Cleaning home

5 to 8 years

Your kid is grown up enough to help you with housekeeping. Make the process easy!

Here are some tips that kid should learn:

Doing Laundry

From 2 years old your kid can begin to learn about sorting. In fact, young kids often find that sorting items is a game. An older kid can learn to help put away clothes. If you begin teaching at a young age, by the time your child is 10-11, they will have learned the entire process of laundry from sorting it to putting it away.

Washing Dishes

Washing dishes seems like a never ending chore. Kids who are trained properly can be a big help with getting dishes clean. Whether you are teaching your children to use a dishwasher or wash dishes by hand, the best way to start is with scraping and rinsing. Even 5-6 year olds can be taught how to scrape and rinse their plates. 

Making a Bed

Learning how to make a bed is a valuable skill.It doesn't mean your kid will always do it, but at least he/she will know how. Start simply by showing how to make the own bed when the kid is a toddler. Progress to letting the little one make the bed with your help. You can also make it easier by choosing less complicated bedding - eliminate extra sheets, blankets, or pillows, especially if they are not used by the child.

Sweeping a Floor

It seems like a simple thing. All you have to do is drag a broom across a floor. But effective sweeping is not always that simple to do and often takes some practice. Give a kid a broom, and you are likely to see dirt flipping everywhere except a pile. Even with all the new gadgets out there, learning to use a broom is a great skill. By age 7-8 kids can begin to learn to sweep floors. Younger kids are even able to hold a dustpan for a partner to sweep into. Older can also learn to use other gadget sweepers in addition to traditional brooms.

Make photos of your kid cleaning home, upload to the App. Write briefly his/her cleaning skills.
