c is for cleaning

i am a firm believer in having purposeful work available to children.  if i pull out the spatula-turned-dried-glue-cleaner-upper and water, at least one child comes over.  then two.


then a table full.  then they decide they need aprons and paper towels.


then it is discovered that the spatula actually works as a flipper.


then the table is clean.


thank you, friends.

  1. I’ve been learning to do more of this. I was about to scrub down a toddler climber thing in the backyard yesterday and thought how much fun my kids will have when I “let” them do it today!
