5 Cleaning Games for the Whole Family


5
Games for Preschool Kids

To get your preschool-aged kids involved in cleaning up their toys, try making it a learning experience. Label different toy boxes or bins with colored shapes and explain that each one is for a certain type of toy. Maybe dolls go in the box marked with a yellow square, or all of the games go in the one with a blue circle. Stay with your child and offer positive reinforcement when he recognizes the colors and shapes by putting the toys into the correct bins. Before you know it, he may be doing it of his own accord.
