A Laundry Day Game

How did we go from this:

To this:

While involving the kids and maintaining the smiles?
 
We had a Clean Clothes Relay!

All the laundry piled high on the bed, with 3 bins on the floor for each kid’s stuff.

On your marks,
Get set,
Go!
 
Run to the pile and choose a piece of clothing.
Run and put it in the right person’s bin!
All the way until the pile’s all gone!
So fun! 
 
Then Carter and I folded them all (with Addison’s help — is that even the right word for a 3 year old folding what I will have to refold?) and made that a game by racing the song on the radio and the commercial breaks.
 
 Who knew house work could be so fun and cooperative!
 
This is all thanks to Five Real {cool} Mom #3, Heidi, who sent me this book for Christmas, SO FILLED with great tips and ideas that organize routines, clutters, schedules, and FUN times!

About Kerri

Ahh…see that smile on my face? That’s a genuine smile. I love my family. I love the 4th of July. I love the beach. I love ice-cream. And the day this picture was taken, I was getting the combination of it all. Ahhh…that’s a real smile!
