With our busy schedules today we should use the whole family when it comes to projects for the home and back yard. By using our kids to help, it will make the projects seem quicker and best of all it’s a family affair!
You will be surprised at how young kids are willing to help. Seems the younger they are the more helpful they are! If you are redoing a back yard for a party that requires cleaning and moved furniture and other items, even though you can carry a chair by yourself, why not include the kids help. Tell them you want them to help you move it to another location. By using the family’s help you may think they will get in your way, at times that may be true, but if you plan ahead you will find there is nothing a whole family can accomplish.
Kids you will find are helpful in many ways. They can fetch paper bags, or trash sacks. Give them easy accomplishable task to do. By giving them a task that they can accomplish there is a lot of pride that goes with that. Most little ones love to brag, so if it’s a big job, include them in helping you. While you are indoors remodeling you may want to have help with destruction work, like taking up tiles. Be sure they have protective gloves if it is ceramic tile, and possibly safety goggles.
In using the whole family on home improvements you will find that it brings a special bonding to the family and most of all your jobs will get done a lot faster
