How Kids Can Help With Garage Cleaning in age appropriate ways
Here's a guide to which chores kids can do to care for and clean up the garage.
Once a child reaches an individual skill or age level, he can generally do the chores for his age group and those for the age groups below.
Of course, some of these chores need to be done each day, others once a week, and still others, once a month or even less frequently.
