Family Organization BINGO
Organize your family in just 5 days!
I've created a fun way to get your kids involved in organizing your home. Use this free BINGO printable to do small tasks that make a BIG impact in your home!
During the Coronavirus lockdown, so many kids are at home with their families instead of at school. I wanted a fun and playful way to have your kids help you get organized during this time.
If you are home anyways, why not take advantage of it? You have nothing BUT time!
Each task is designed to take about 20 minutes or less.
I selected areas in your home that your kids interact with on a daily basis.
This BINGO Challenge is meant to be done WITH your kids. I suggest first having a team meeting to talk about the important of being a family and how you need to work together as a team to keep your home organized.
Here are some other tips:
Do the task in the morning so the day doesn’t get away from you. Plus, you’ll start your day off with a huge WIN and that always feels good and creates momentum!
Use a timer. Set it for 20 minutes, and take a pledge to work as hard as you can until the timer goes off. Once it goes off, you are done. If you have more time and willing participants, keep going. If not, let your kids be done and you can either finish up the project yourself or continue it another day.
Give daily rewards for each task. Decide before starting that day what the special reward or treat will be for completing each BINGO square. Then, decide what the reward will be once you get BINGO and even Blackout! Select something that you know will motivate your kids! (food treat, technology time, dance party, special movie, baking time, money...get creative!) If they stop being motivated to do the task, change the reward.
Involve your kids as much as possible! That means you will need plenty of patience and let go of perfection. Done is better than perfect.
If your child has a hard time letting go of things, give them a specific number to keep. For example, tell them they can keep 15 stuffed animals, 10 board games, 10 coloring books, etc. You decide how many, and they decide which ones.
Be enthusiastic! The more pumped up you get about this and make this a fun time together, the more they will want to participate. Put on some good music, be silly, and get organized!
