Probably not many, but it is important to teach your preschooler to learn how to clean up their toys. It is an important part of a young person’s development, cleaning up a mess they’ve made themselves helps develop your preschooler’s sense of responsibility.

However it can help to make clean up fun! Here’s how:

  1. Set a timer.
  2. Put on music.
  3. Pick up a set number of items.
  4. Have a chore chart.
  5. Play the 10 second rule – how many toys to pick up in 10 seconds.
  6. Reward a Job Well Done.

We hope this post has inspired you to find simple ways to make cleaning more  fun for kids. It takes a variety of tactics so continue to mix it up.
