4 Fun ways to Spring Clean

Below are a few fun ideas that are sure to make Spring Cleaning less of a chore.


Somehow, a lunchbox always seems to lose its other half - the lid. Tip out all of the lunchboxes onto the kitchen counter and task the kids with the job of pairing each container with the correct lid. Get rid of all of the mismatched once the kids are done.


Pick out all of the items of clothing that you think need to be chucked out. Make yourself a cup of tea, take a seat on the couch and get the kids to do a fashion show in the living room to upbeat music, wearing the items that you've selected.  You can see which clothes still fit and which items need to be tossed into the ‘going’ pile, all while having a good time.


Your child probably has loads of old toys they've outgrown or lost interest in. Get your child to rummage through the toy box and put aside the playthings that they can part with. Take the toys to an orphanage or to an underprivileged school to show your little one just how much the toys that they have donated will be appreciated by children who are less fortunate.  

The Garden

Not only is spring for spring cleaning, it’s time to start spending more time outdoors. Get your kids to enjoy the fresh air by asking them to help you in the garden. Give each child a bucket and assign them with the task of filling it with weeds and fallen leaves. The first to fill their bucket wins!

With all of this fun, yet tiring spring cleaning going on, the chances are that you will have very little time to put together a complex meal plan for at least a few days. Luckily, you can take advantage of quick and easy dinner recipes here.
