I am sure this is a common problem in lots of families. My girls hate to do chores!! Well I should not say all my girls, once taught Squeal will easily throw things in the garbage it is her favorite pastime, problem is she does not know when to stop! Everything ends up in the garbage.
We have this shoe basket by the door. The common kids chore I ask my girls to complete is to put the shoes in the basket. They never end up there in the first place! I am always tripping on them. I had been cleaning for a little while when I realized Shout was still working hard on her chore. She was very focused. It had become a work of art. A sculpture. Also alot like the game jenga. It also made me realize that we have too many shoes.
I will call it Cleaning art. Now how do I get them to make cleaning art out of their extremely messy room?
