About: Instagram @emway2c I love going to Maine and exploring nature. I've been selected to go to France and England this summer! I'm here to help!

We all know how boring cleaning is but here's some tips to have fun!

Step 1: Music

Play some music to dance to while cleaning! This will get you motivated to get this done. I think fast happy encouraging music will help the most. Slow sad music may make you bored and back where you were when you started cleaning!

Step 2: Make It a Game

Set up a trash can, a laundry bin, and a toy box. Set a timer for 1 minute to gather your things. 3...2...1... THROW!

Step 3: Score

Keep score
1 trash= 3pts
1 clothes = 1 Pts
1 toy = 2 Pts

Step 4: Work in Progress

Comment so I can add more ways!

    Once you get things cleaned up, keep them that way with gum balls. We assigned one job to each color of gum balls we had in a dollar store gum ball machine. Each night after dinner you got a gum ball and did that job. In a week everything got done. Incidentally I now hate green gum, that was clean the bathroo

    My tip is for involving younger children. Assign them a certain category such as, pick up all the blue things. Whether it's a book, toy, or pair of shoes, if it's blue it gets put away. Then assign the next category. A bit ADD, but it helps them stay on task and reinforces knowledge too!
