Child-adapted cleaning supplies

preschooler-adapted swiffer mop

I took the middle sections out of our Swiffer Sweeper to make it child-sized, and now Emma sweeps the floor for me every morning! The reusable mop cover is from this etsy shop, and it works really well!

    That’s a great idea! My daughters have a play mop and broom they use to pretend clean… now I can just adapt the Swiffer and truly put them to work!

    Great idea! They usually try and sweep with the full-size one and end up poking or knocking something…will have to give this a try!

    My two lil girls are so fascinated with Swifters. They love to help me dust using their swifter sticks. I got two for the both of them because they were fighting over it some time ago.

    thanks for linking up to my etsy shop :) I’m glad you are enjoying your reusable swiffer pads! We did that with one of our swiffer mops too – my kids love it (and I love the help!!!)

    Yea for an enthusiastic helper and a clever mama to make a Swifter just-her-size! :) We have an usher broom and dustpan set that works almost equally well for adults and children.

    My kids’ favourite use of the broom is to fetch things out from under the sofa and refrigerator. The area beneath our refrigerator is surprisingly dust-bunny-free these days.

    This is a great idea! Jack LOVES to use our Swiffers. I am def. going to do this for one of them just for him. Thank you!!

    Hey, say a little prayer for me. I have an interview tomorrow night with our Bishopric about a calling–no idea what it is. Nervous:-)….

    Ladybug loves using my sweeper. I bought two large microfiber cloths and cut them in half to have a good supply on hand. (That’s eight when you flip em over, even.)
    Even Sam has started in on the action. He just kind of moves the dirt around, though.

    Cute idea. Maybe I should shorten mine, too.

    My children are fans of our dustpan and brush, but I think your idea would be a real winner with them (and me). I have often wondered when the enthusiasm for helping to clean dies off.

    Hair gel and food coloring is a combination we have not tried. After seeing your blog post and cool pictures for this activity I think we will also have a heap of fun with this.

    No sew felt food. My interest really piqued when I saw the “no sew” part. Your pizzas are fantastic and I will certainly be whipping up a few of these. My children are right into playing with pretend food at the moment and I think they would appreciate some new additions to their collection.
