Teaching our children how to clean is an important life skill; so, use these tips, age appropriate cleaning lists and free printable chore charts to help. These 30 free resources for cleaning with children will help encourage you in what can seem like an overwhelming task at times. I literally just sat down today to make new chore charts with my kids. I let them help me fill the chart. Low and behold, the kids are nowhere to be found. Yup, the grandparents swept them away. My husband and I laughed; they totally got away with starting their chore chart this week. This is good because I am going to regroup after reading this age appropriate list. I want to be realistic about what I am asking of them as to not set them up for failure. Check these out with me.
