Our room cleaning checklist for kids was such a big hit (over 5000 pins!) that I decided to follow-up with a kitchen cleaning checklist. My kids are such a big help with chores around the house and I need every minute of their help! This checklist allows by big kids (ages 13, 9 and 6) to clean up after a meal without any nagging from me (not that I would ever do that!).
Just the basics or clean a lot
This list has 3 levels of clean. If we only have a few minutes to clean up, I’ll tell them to do the first set of items. However, if we’re not rushing out the door or back to our schoolbooks, I may tell them we’re doing the entire list. It’s easy enough and they have the training so that they can do it all themselves in case I want to hide in my office and

It’s so important to thank your kids for their help around the house so make sure they know how much you appreciate them.
