Who does the cleaning in your house? In our house, it’s pretty equally divided, but I have to say, a lot of credit for making it fun for the kids goes to my husband, who finds many ways to turn chores into something that makes the kids giggle!
Today’s post brought to you by our sponsor, Swiffer, gives a few ways he makes cleaning the floors fun.
Making Cleaning Fun
- Karaoke! Every, Single. Time. I’m pretty sure that my boys and husband are hardwired to start singing anytime they enter a room with wood or tiled floors.
- Dance parties! Feel free to combine this idea with the one above. For some serious “clean” fun!
- Hockey. Yep, throw a wadded up paper towel and use the mop to hit it across the room
- Swiffer Wet Jet. Just like Anthony Anderson (Swiffer’s spokesperson) said, it’s fun, because it’s wet, and it’s a jet. Trust me. Kids will think this is fun!
Cleaning can definitely be fun — just check out the giggles in Swiffer’s new video! Swiffer wants you to use the second Big Green Box to pay it forward by surprising and delighting another deserving dad!
I know lots of dads who are involved in cleaning, so I am always surprised when I see a portrayal of dads as people who can’t keep the house from falling apart when they are at home with kids. Swiffer’s new campaign is aimed at stopping that portrayal, and showing how awesome and involved dads are.
According to the Swiffer Cleaning Index, Dads today are pitching in nearly two times more than their Dads did. Half of Dads today say they do most of the cleaning in their home, dividing chores with their significant others. Swiffer is unveiling its #SwifferDad video to celebrate Dad as a role model for clean, and the positive influence of his “behind the clean” moments with his family. I love it’s docu-style video — shown from the perspective of the kids! (And check out the behind-the-scenes with Anthony Anderson here!)
Swiffer aims to provide products that help busy families clean quickly and effectively so they can spend time on things that really matter. A mission I’m on board with! With the Swiffer Wet Jet you can retire the old fashioned mop and bucket! It’s an all-in-one mopping solution that traps and locks dirt and grime instead of pushing it around.
I also love, love, love that Swiffer let us pay it forward! We were given two of their Big Green Boxes – one for us and one to surprise a deserving dad we know – including a Swiffer Wet Jet, Wet Jet Refill, and Wet Jet Pad Refill!
