Hello from beautiful Montana;

Okay, here we go with ideas to make working with your kids fun.  Remember, I said work with, not for.

Do less for them, so you have time to do more with them. And teach them to assume personal responsibility along the way.  It is a win-win.

Tip 3.  Cobweb Capture.

Make a cobweb pole out of a thick cotton sock placed inside another and then slipped onto a yardstick.  Secure with a rubber band and let the kids go over all the corners and ceilings of every room to get the cobwebs.

If you have especially high ceilings, use a broom with an old towel draped over it.  Don’t forget the area behind the washer and dryer.

How many did they capture?  Wow!  Do it again in a month.  It is fun to work together.  Now go have a special time of reading a book about spiders.

If you are anxious to read the whole book of 101 Ways to Get Your Kids to Help at Home, you will want to go to http://www.ResponsibleChildren.com   This is a great time to get a buy in from the whole family about keeping the house fairly clean and chores done, so you can have time to do more things together.

Thanks for stopping by.  Send me your questions at Judy@ArtichokePress.com  or leave a comment.
