Purposful Work for Children
My kids are always wanting to help out with real jobs around the house. They are at the prime age when helping me around the house is lots of fun for them. Instead of being irritated by them "slowing me down", I have decided to embrace this time and organize some jobs that they enjoy doing. For Easter, my mom got them some garden carts and "real"metal and wood yard tools. They are so excited the rain finally stopped and a beautiful spring day is upon us. We are ready to get outside and use the new garden tools. As I put together more jobs for the girls to do around the house, I will post them as well.
