It’s summer but that doesn’t mean that you let up on the chores, does it? I’ll admit we may have let up a bit this summer but these 5 Bathroom Chores for the Kids are a great way to keep on task with the housework.
Do you have a set amount of chores for your kids? We have certain chores that we have our son do and he can earn an allowance by doing them, some of those include the bathroom. I’m also trying to add more chores for our daughter to do as she gets older. Of course, my son always gets upset because she doesn’t do as many as him, but she’s also not earning money yet for hers.
In order to keep up with all the fun we are having this summer, I’ve tried to get my kids to do a little bit more to help with the cleaning throughout the week. I like to clean as we go instead of doing major cleaning days. There are some things in the bathroom that are easy for kids to do and simple tasks that really they need to learn to do now because they will continue to do them as they move on and grow up in life. That’s all about teaching responsibility, right?
Another thing that goes along with that too is teaching kids about money and being frugal. We just recently took a class on finance and my son must have picked up on it because he’s become very interested in money, what is being spent and saved as well. This past week, I told him about ibotta and how it helps me save money on groceries and household items to free up money in other areas. He was immediately interested in this. We headed to Walmart and picked up the Cottonelle Mega Rolls because we had an ibotta deal, plus it would last us a bit too! When we went to grab the Cottonelle there was another coupon on it for $1.50 so we ended up saving even more. My son was just as ecstatic as I was, I can’t help it a good deal makes me excited especially on something you HAVE to buy. It’s essential and it’s great to have extra!
That leads me to the chores we’ve had him do in the bathroom, which include stocking toilet paper.
5 Bathroom Chores for the Kids
- Wipe down the counters.
- Restock toilet paper in a basket for easy access.
- Change the hand towels or hang them back up.
- Make sure the soap dispensers are filled up.
- Clean the toothbrush caddies out.
These are very simple tasks that kids can help out with that most of us just do and don’t even realize it. It’s a great way to teach the kids about responsibility too and how to take care of their own house someday.
Happy Shopping and Saving!
