The first thing we need to start with is organization.

You can pick these up at your sterilite-wide-6-drawer-cart-multicolor_159241local Target, Walmart, or you can shop on Amazon. This way everyone knows where each item is supposed to go. If the child doesn't know where to put something and you do the child can get very frustrated very fast. Put pictures on the drawer to help with the littler ones. Or, you can get different colored drawers and organize it that way. Now we're well on our way to having our helpers get started.

Set a timer and Count Down

A lot of the time we tell our children to that play time is over and it's time to clean up with out giving them a warning. In the kids mind they feel like they got the rug pulled out from underneath them. We've found that if you set a timer an count down to when it's time to clean up they are more prepared to do so. When the timer goes off we have to be ready also. If we're not ready, the timer doesn't hold that much value.
