Some wonderful kids activities can actually help Mom around the house as well as teach children responsibility. Teaching your children to help around the house can be a kids activity that is taught at a very early age. It can also be fun and not a grueling experience.
Children activities can be simple and teach kids as well. You can make your own customized calendar by downloading them from the internet. They are usually blank and therefore ready for you to personalize.
Write down the expectations you have for chores from your children for the coming month. Purchase stick on stars from the dollar store or any teachers� store. For each day that the chores are completed give your child a star. If you have more than one child participating have them pick the color star that will represent them on the calendar.
At the end of the month if all the days have stars it is cause for celebration. These kids projects can be fun and will help you around the house as well. When it comes time for awards you can decide how you want to reward your child. I had told my children we would go shopping for their special prize. I was pleasantly surprised that they picked very inexpensive gifts. It seemed that the self-esteem they accomplished from having a full calendar of stars was very gratifying in itself.
If you feel you need to set limits, do so at the beginning of the month so that there are not any disappointments. This will also encourage them for the coming month. You may also want to take the children out for some kids fun at maybe an arcade or a park.
