For the last week, my kids and I have been working on clearing out some clutter: toys they no longer play with, clothes they've outgrown, and "stuff" we should have parted with long ago. It's been a refreshing process!
And now that we've cleared some space, we're ready to work on some annual spring cleaning jobs. But this time, I'm not tackling it on my own. Instead, I'm going to be delegating specific spring cleaning chores to each of my kids, and we're going to work on each room together.
For a list of the tasks we'll be working on (which you can print out and share with your own kids), read Your Kids' Spring Cleaning Chores.
