We make cleanup a race: “Who can pick up the most toys in a set time period?” We count each toy as it is put away and we race around the house seeing who can find more things to pick up. We have fun and the dreaded toy cleanup is finished in no time flat.
From now will I will post Parent Tips from real Moms/Dads on Thursdays. I will gather them over the internet and if you want to contribute please send me an email to soleflor at gmail dot com or send me a DM to @soleflor if the tip has less than 140 letters and I will publish them. If you have a blog I will link to it, if you don’t no problem send me the Tip and I will post it with your name.
