In our home, we are always looking for ways to help each other. It’s what family is all about, right? The big-ticket item on my to-do list this week? Spring cleaning.
Yup, it’s time to say goodbye to that winter grime and say hello to the crisp, clean, and much-needed springtime air!
Every year I’m surprised at how much time and planning it takes to spring clean. This year, we’re making it a family event where the kids are helping out.
Why? It helps them understand the importance of keeping a clean home and it helps me by having a bit less to do. Not only are the kids excited to give me a hand, but I’m thrilled to have their help as well!
Plan Ahead for Success
To remove any distractions that may derail our spring cleaning agenda, I’m planning ahead. One of the daily tasks I plan and prepare for is making certain that our family has a delicious and wholesome dinner on the table each night. With spring cleaning absorbing the majority of my time, my dinner planning needed some help!
On a recent trip to Kroger, I noticed On-Cor entrées in the freezer section and their tasty dinner options immediately caught my eye. My family loves to eat classic family favorites, so their dinner choices stood out to me.
A number of their entrées now have 20 percent more meat, including Salisbury Steak, Sliced Turkey, and Char-Broiled Patties. Our family loves turkey, so the choice was immediately obvious to me.
After a long day of spring cleaning, On-Cor’s Gravy & Sliced White Meat Turkey entrée will be the perfect way to end the day. Plus all of On-Cor’s entrées are MSG-free. Consider dinner purchased and planned!
5 Easy Ways to Get Kids Involved with Spring Cleaning
Looking for ways to get your children involved with spring cleaning? Here are 5 easy ways to have your kids help with spring cleaning.
Let Kids Tackle Their Rooms
Their bedrooms are their space, so why not let them clean it up? Give kids tips on which areas to focus on then let them take it from there.
Clear Those Closets
Does your child have clothes they don’t wear often? Now’s the time to clean out those items!
Hand Over a Broom
What child doesn’t love to sweep? There is something so fun about it that this spring cleaning job is sure to be a favorite.
Give them a Spray Bottle
My kids love to clean windows! Make a kid-safe window cleaner by mixing 50% distilled vinegar and 50% water in a spray bottle. Kids can wipe the windows with a paper towel or old newspapers.
Say Goodbye to Dust Bunnies
Invite your child to slip an old sock over their hand and have fun dusting the surfaces in your house.
Benefits of Getting Kids Involved in Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning as a family offers many positive benefits to kids!
It Builds Connection
Who knew that cleaning together could strengthen your family’s connection, but it truly does! Make cleaning fun by cranking up the radio and singing along to favorite tunes or randomly stopping to have a dance-off as you clean from room to room.
It Teaches About Teamwork
What one can’t clean, someone else can. Cleaning together is a great way to lend a helping hand! Talk about how when many hands work together, jobs get done faster!
It Builds Responsibility
Kids who are expected to participate in family chores grow up to be more responsible and proactive than kids who don’t.
The best part? Knowing you planned ahead and your dinner is literally waiting for you and your children after a hard day of cleaning.
Life’s demanding enough. Dinner shouldn’t be! Let On-Cor do dinner so you can take care of the other to-do’s that need to-doing.
