How to get kids to love cleaning up

by Mary

I have found a fun way to get your preschool kids involved in cleaning up--not always an easy task!

At the end of the day, when the tables are pretty messy, get out
some shaving cream, or any foaming child-safe soap.

Spread it on the table top and let the kids "fingerpaint" the shaving cream all over the table top.

Little kids love this and it is a way to involve them in clean up time. The shaving cream cleans the table lifting off dried glue, snack crumbs, etc.

Thier hands and the tables get cleaned. When the table is clean, give them paper towels to wipe the table dry. Then have them rinse their hands and dry them.

They have had a fun time and helped get the tables ready for the next school day.

I've used this preschool activities for years and it never fails to make clean-up fun. So, include this in your preschool curriculum and add value to your preschool experience.
