Happy Children’s Day! If you happen to be a parent, this article might be your life-saver.Posted by autobot marketing on
If your house has ever looked like a tornado of blocks, crayons, and tutus has hit it, you know what it feels like when your kids rule the roost. Take back your home (and your sanity), with these helpful cleaning tricks from our favorite bloggers who have some rambunctious kids of their own.
1. Create stations.
"My boys love to craft, but I got tired of supplies covering my dining room. To help with this, I created an "art buffet" out of an old dresser. Now, they can craft all they want, but the supplies must go right back in the drawers when they're done."— Ariean at One Krieger Chick
2. Ditch cleaning conventions if it works for you.
"I do laundry 'by person' instead of washing the entire family's clothes together. I keep a laundry basket in each child's room, and I wash, dry, and fold each basket in one load. I know it's not the traditional way, but it's saved me so much time. Sorting the whole family's lights and darks, and then sorting everything again when they're done might cause me to have a breakdown with all that sorting, sorting, sorting! — Angie at Echoes of Laughter
3. Create pretty storage.
"With an active 10-month-old and a 3-year-old, the amount of toys on the floor at the end of the day can be daunting. To help hide the mountain of stuff, I built a storage unit out of old pallets that includes several large baskets. It hides all of the toys and also serves as a decorative piece." — Taryn at Design Dining and Diapers
4. Discourage messes at the source.
"In an effort to stop messy dinner-time behavior, I instituted a rule that all food thrown on the floor must be cleaned up (by moi) before anyone is allowed out of their highchair." — Jill Simonian at The Fab Mom
5. Spend money wisely.
"I pay my older boys 10 cents per pair to match socks. And they think it's fun! Best three dollars I spend each week." Ariean said. Paying children to cultivate their good habits is a brilliant idea, but you may also spend your money wisely in another way: purchase a good vacuum cleaner!
