One thing I fell in love with when I was pregnant with the twins- cleaning check lists. I was not able to do the amount of housework I normally do, especially towards the end, and nobody else seemed to realize what it means for something to actually be clean. You know exactly what I am talking about, don’t you? They do the dishes, but don’t wipe the counters or sink. They don’t vacuum or dust when cleaning a room. Or the one that really gets me, cleaning the kitchen or bathroom, but they totally miss sweeping (and don’t even think about mopping). What I found really helped me, and my family, was when I made check lists. Some were separated by who needed to do what, what days we did what chores, etc while others were lists of what needed to be done in each room.
Fast forward a year (yes, my babies are turning a year soon) and my six year old still loves using his check list for his room. I love that he has something to follow to know what needs to get done so he isn’t coming to me a million times saying his room is clean or asking what he needs to do next. He thinks it is a game to try and get everything checked off. It also helps him stay focused, something most 6 year olds have trouble with when they are not necessarily interested in the task at hand. This checklist works out great for us.
I am excited to be able to share this checklist with you today as a free printable. This is not a deep clean or detailed list, but more just the basic tasks I expect done when a room gets cleaned.
Before you print off your free checklist, just a few reminders.
- Printables are for personal use only. That means you can’t sell them. Got it?
- If you want to share the printables, awesome! Just please do so by directing your friends, family, or readers to this post.
- Do not remove the copyright on the bottom of the printable. Don’t do it. Not sure why you would, but don’t.
- Be sure to print these as an 8×10. Yeah, if you try and change the sizing, it might look a little funny.
