Everyone loves a good competition. So, let your kids clean their room and race to see who can throw away the most trash or put their clothes away the fastest. The person who wins gets a prize and you’re not stuck cleaning alone!
2) Have a Fashion Show:
Spring is the perfect time of year to go through all your old winter clothes and donate what you no longer need.

This way, they have fun dressing up while you get to see firsthand which clothes they no longer need. Whatever doesn’t fit pack away and donate!
3) Make a list:
Make a list of all the tasks you would like to complete and post them on the fridge. Every time your child completes a task, have them sign their name. Whoever completes the most tasks, gets to choose what activity you do as a family the following weekend.
4) Dance Party:
We all need to cut loose and listen to good tunes while cleaning. Make a playlist of your child’s favorite music and dance around the house as you clean together. Make cleaning fun!
5) Scavenger hunt
Place simple items all around your home in places where there is clutter. Then give your child a list of all the items you have hidden within the house. Let them know in order to find the items and win the game that they must clean up to find the hidden treasure.
Whether it’s cleaning, decluttering, or just spending quality family time together, these 5 tips are sure to help keep your home full of love and laughter this spring. So, let’s get started! Pull out the cleaning products, crank the music up, and get ready to have some family fun!
