car chores for kids by age




Car chores for kids are a natural. They do help muck up the family ride, after all.

So why shouldn't they help clean it - as long as the chores are age appropriate?

Getting kids to help with cleaning isn't easy, especially in the beginning. Besides, how much help can you realistically expect from a child?
