Yesterday, I decided to go out on a limb and see if the kids would help me wash the car. We are staying at my parents' house right now and when I get the organizing/cleaning itch, I usually have to stifle it and by the time we get home, sometimes it is no longer there! But I thought about it yesterday afternoon and decided cleaning out the car would be my Wednesday project.
When the kids napped, I cleaned out the inside of the car and when they woke up, I surprised them by telling them we could play in the hose water if they helped me wash the car.
It ended up being the perfect "job" to do at the end of the day. The kids had a blast and I have a clean car. It teaches them some responsibility but they also get to have fun and play around. It was a really fun afternoon and I'm sure we'll be doing this again soon.
