The Lovely Kitchen
This week I am dedicating to my kitchen. Whenever I have time allotted for cleaning, I am using it for the kitchen. It is always a pleasure to make the home more beautiful, and the kitchen is like the center of the home, always busy and bustling with activity. So it gets rather dirty!
On Monday I assigned several of the children a drawer to clean out. I made them each a chore card with a picture and instructions on exactly what to do to clean it out--first take everything out, then vacuum the drawer, then wipe it out, and then finally replace everything neatly. They actually had lots of fun with it. I will also use these chore cards for other rooms of the house when I need them to organize a drawer there.
We will also need to devote some time to the appliances. I think I will have each child clean an appliance as well. They like to clean things they don't normally clean every day. It is more exciting to them! How wonderful that God blessed me with so many girls, because they really enjoy learning more about caring for the home so they will be prepared for their future roles of homemakers.
Hopefully by the end of this week we will have a lovely kitchen, or at least a more lovely kitchen!
Do you like to focus on one room each week? Or how do you do your deep cleaning?
