You can't start too young when it comes to teaching kids to help. Just this week Ruby has started sweeping the floors with me. When I make a dust pile, she pushes it around for a few minutes. Ruby has claimed this broom as hers, Alli can't use it without a fuss from Ruby.
Alli is into folding clothes now. She does it a little differently than I do, but I appreciate her help just the same. She also likes matching socks.
Next I'll be teaching Ruby to do dishes, and Alli to make dinner :)
