Dust mopping the wood floors has become a weekly necessity and this is Henry’s favorite! I shortened a Swiffer mop by taking out a couple of the sections, so now its just his height.
When doing laundry, Henry always jumps at the chance to help.
He brings all the hampers to the laundry room for me. And then returns them to their place.
He does try to help with rotating the laundry, but usually gets stuck when pulling stuff out of the washer.
Henry also helps clean up after most of the activities and crafts that we do.
Which often leads to vacuuming.
Which he loves.
Another favorite has to be cleaning anything in the sink. He could (and does at times) spend hours on his ‘big stool’ (my step stool) cleaning.
Henry often helps me withunloading the dishwasher too.
He puts away all the silverware (after I’ve removed all sharp objects). He usually takes care of putting his own dishes away too.
Baking and cooking are also favorites around here.
I think any chance for Henry to use the big stool, he takes.
Almost once a day, Henry helps me get a meal on the table. And many times he completely sets the table for me.
I’ve been working on trying to get him to take his dirty dishes to the kitchen after a meal. That one seems to be taking awhile to catch on.
Henry often helps Dad, too, while working on the house, outside or down at the bakery.
I’ve debated about starting a chore chart, but right now Henry still enjoys his ‘chores’ and its fun to him.
I don’t want them to become a chore just yet.
