As moms of toddlers I’m sure we all wish that there were more hours in the day. There is just not enough time to do all of the fun things we want to do with our kiddos, all of the things we want to do for ourselves, and also keep our family well fed and our house clean.
We all know that toddlers can be huge mess makers. We call our son, “Brother the Destructor”, because it literally seems like he leaves destruction in his wake. And, of course, they are way better at making messes then they are at cleaning them up.
But, kind of by accident, I have discovered over the past month or so, that my kids can help me with more chores around the house then I realized. So, I’ve decided to put those little whippersnappers to work! Here are 10 chores that even toddlers can help with around the house.nggallery id=’124543′
Of course, which chores a child can do will be based on their age and ability, but don’t underestimate how much your toddler can actually help with. And always remember to use non-toxic cleaning products with children. I’ll bet that your little one will enjoy doing some of these chores so much, they will ask you if they can do them! Take advantage of it now, I’m not sure that’s a stage that will last very long!
