DIY Help Wanted Board – This is an older post that needs to be updated with better photos and descriptions, but I still love the idea.
This is a great approach! Kids can disappear quick when there is work to be done! I need to get in a better habit of getting mine to think for themselves. Changing a command to a question might be an even better approach. As in, what could you do with all the cars? Now do you think the papers look messy, how could you fix that? One more step to independence.
That’s a great idea! It’s really good to get them start noticing and thinking through things like that. Thanks so much for commenting.
Outstanding advice! I wish I would have known this sooner, but hey it’s never too late right? 😉
Thanks for sharing!
Never too late. Hope it works well for you!
