When grandchildren visit, have some fun letting them help with the chores.
Children enjoy being helpful and included, whether it’s cleaning the end tables, cleaning the bathroom sink or wiping up the floor. It’s because kids love to play in water, and as grandparents, that is something we have in abundant supply so give them the rags, and let the little hands be busy.
Outside, they love playing with the hose. They would love helping Grandpa wash his mower as well as raking and picking up twigs in preparation for mowing season. While playing with the hose, they can spray and sweep the patio. Anything outdoors and playing with water can keep little ones busy and put smiles on faces.
Children also have Spring cleaning chores they need to accomplish like cleaning up their favorite bicycle and/or outside toys.
Once the inside and outside helping is done, a trip to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream may be in order or just ordering your favorite delivery Pizza since they will surely have worked up an appetite.
