Winter is coming to an end signaling the annual theme of spring cleaning the home. ShopRTO issues the following tips to help families make the annual chore as fun and productive as possible.
Designate the day and time far in advance so the family knows and prepares. Prepare music and snacks to create an atmosphere reflecting an event rather than a chore. Schedule breaks to enjoy those snacks as a group but do not linger too long to lose the momentum.
Create a rewarding finish as an incentive and something to look forward at the end. It could be fine dining for the couple or family night at the nearest pizza place and movie theater. Incorporate a fun awards program at the end celebration with speeches, toasts and prizes for the hardest worker and such.
Create competition amongst the chores such as who can donate the most old clothes from the closet to goodwill. Make sure to include prizes for winners to further enhance the experience.
For the kids, create a scavenger hunt where the one who finds and deposits the most trash within five minutes wins a prize. Or hide treats, stickers or money under items to find when dusting. And let them use the squirt gun when washing windows, counter tops and such.
After the day is done, create a point system that rewards or punishes those who keep the home clean in the following weeks as an incentive.
