Want to Turn Helping Out Around the House Into a Fun Activity for Kids? Here's the Secret! by Christie Gosch

Children like to be involved with work around the house, but often the tools are too big for them to feel they have contributed. A positive result is important to continue fostering that helping spirit, so getting the right tools - like a child-size broom or sweeper set - can do wonders for kids' confidence. 

Providing a routine of sweeping up after meals might get them excited to get their “own” broom. It shouldn’t matter how well they do the job, just that they try. This can be applied to other jobs where child-size items can be purchased, such as smaller cooking utensils and yard tools!
