My oldest son is three and likes to be “really useful” like Thomas the Train. So he is always asking me how he can help. His favorite place to help out is in the kitchen.
I have given him a few “chores” that he can do. He doesn’t do them every day. I try to keep it fun for him so he is more like my little helper.
4 Kitchen Chores For Preschoolers
1. Washing Dishes – When I have some dishes that I need hand washed, I fill one side of the sink with my dishwater and the other side with just plain water. He is in charge of rinsing the dishes and putting them on the drying rack. He loves doing this as it is fun to play in the water and we get the dishes done.
2. Unloading the Dishwasher – After I remove all the sharp objects from the dishwasher, my son will remove the dishes. He hands them to me so I can put them away in their rightful place.
3. Wipe down the counters and table – I give my son a washcloth and he wipes down the counters and tables. I now use the Palmolive® Multi Surface cleaner on my counters. I prepare it according to the instructions and I allow him to use it on my kitchen counters. Using the Palmolive® Multi Surface has helped cut down on cleaning supplies. I can use it for both dish washing and cleaning. So nice! Palmolive® Multi Surface eliminates 99.9% of bacteria (*staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica and E. coli ((157:H7)) from dishes and hard non porous kitchen surfaces. You can find it at Walmart with the dish soaps.
4. Sweep the floor – I usually do the sweeping but I let my son sweep the dirt into the dust pan and empty it into the trash. He patiently waits as I sweep and is ready to do his part when I tell him I am all done. I have a small dust brush that he uses to get the dirt swept up.
