Games for 3 - 5yrs Housework!
Toddlers and young children love feeling grownup! Helping around thehouse is another one of those “toddler tasks” that for a child is a great game. (N.B. it can create more mess).
When you are washing up or doing housework, or even if you are not, get a washing up bowl of warm soapy water and a sponge and let your toddler wash up some things. Obviously nothing breakable or sharp: his/her plastic tea set, a wooden spoon some other spoons, plastic mugs.
I usually put the bowl on the floor on some old newspapers to help contain the splashes – he/she can also try painting with water on the newspaper…
Or, a similar set up in the bathroom can ensure that your toddler has a go at cleaning the bathroom tiles – lots of fun for him/her!
