Back to School Cleaning

Preparing for Back to School

It’s that time of year when many parents are starting their Back to School shopping and preparing for the upcoming school year. Some of them may be counting down the days as they anxiously await a break from keeping their kids entertained over the summer, while others are taking advantage of the time that they’re still home to help with the household chores. Either way, there’s never been a better time to have the extra bit of help while you can with some back to school cleaning!

Summer Chores & Back to School Cleaning

Before they head back to school, here are a few chores that kids may want to help with according to a recent article from Seventh Generation:

  1. Help with weeding and gardening. This is a great way to get the kids outside too!
  2. Help with sorting and loading laundry. If your kids are older, they may be able to help with loading the washer and dryer.
  3. Create grocery lists and plan meals for the week. This may also help those little ones who are picky eaters.
  4. Take out the trash. Have them empty the waste and sort recyclable materials.
  5. Clean and organize their rooms. This is a great time to toss old clothes, toys or books from the previous school year.
  6. Organize a messy craft area or playroom. Be sure to include several storage bins and containers to help keep this space tidy.
  7. Wash dishes. Older kids may be able to help with loading and unloading the dishwasher.
