Getting kids to help with garage cleaning isn't easy, especially in the beginning. Besides, how much help can you realistically expect from a child?
The answer depends on the child's age. Below I've listed examples of garage kids chores that they can generally do by certain ages.
Your child may be capable of doing a chore sooner or later, depending on her level of concentration, fine-motor skills, or maturity.
Once a child reaches a certain skill or age level, he can generally do the chores for his age group and those for the age groups below.
However, you'll want to be there the first time your child tackles a new task, regardless of age. Beginners need pointers for even the simplest jobs, such as as wiping up upholstery spills. What's second nature to us is a new experience for them.
For example, you have to explain how get a dried spot safely off the car's upholstery or dashboard and why, and you need to show them how to keep at it with baby wipes or a sponge dipped in hot water and dishwashing liquid (and squeezed to remove most of the moisture).
Keep in mind that some of these chores need to be done each day, but others need to be done only once a week.
