Cleaning Together

Toddler Cleaning Up

Turn cleaning into a game. Give your child a clean, almost-dry sponge and ask them to help you wipe off a surface you’re cleaning. Ask them to wipe it clean in long lines from top to bottom. Then try making a zigzag. Then circles. See what they think of too!

See what your child is learning

Doing grown-up work can make your child feel very proud of themself and their accomplishments. In addition, they’re learning how to take care of the things in their life and is also learning new words too!
