Kids Healthy Environments

Having fun with our kids these days means getting creative.  We all have so much going on that it gets harder to set time for playing with the kids.  Try some of the following ideas to get you started.  Have fun with the kids!!


Clutter builds up fast and having a little helper can make the process of cleaning up a fun game. Pick areas that the child will be interested in such as their school papers or their room. When children have an adult help them clean up they learn that cleaning up can go quickly and be fun.

Mop the floor:

With a little help getting the mop and bucket ready, kids can feel empowered when mopping the floor. Teaching kids the importance of keeping the floor clean can be a life long lesson that they can pass on to their children.

Removing the dust:

Put old pairs of socks on your hands and feet and make a game whose socks can get the dirtiest. Using old mix matched socks to dust will not only clean your environment but will also produce the wonderful sound of laughter.

Reorganize the drawers and cabinets:

Asking kids their opinion on where things should go creates a strong sense that their opinion matters. Going through their dresser drawers and refolding clothes and letting them pick which drawer is the sock drawer gets them involved in keeping their room neat and tidy.

Make dinner and clean up the dishes:

Having our kids in the kitchen teaches a valuable skill of learning to cook. Making simple dishes that they can help with and then cleaning up the kitchen together goes a long way in building these valuable life skills.

Have fun:

Make it special. The reward is the bond you create. Over time you will be surprised when the kids ask you “What should we clean today?”
