Since she is 5 we decided to assign her 5 main chores that basically just teach her to pick up after herself
- put her dishes in the sink after she eats,
- put her dirty clothes in the hamper,
- put her shoes in the shoe bin,
- help clean up her toys,
- hang up her coat and bag pack after school
Our solution, a Kids Puzzle Name Coat Rack from Personal Creations
We loved that the rack was small and kid-sized, and could be personalized so she would feel like it was a special place just for her stuff.
We thought about hanging the rack in her room, but decided that everything would get knocked down too often during "play" time. But there is a little hallway/entrance way right outside her bedroom door that is separate from the rest of the upstairs, so we decided to see how it worked there.
So far, it's been perfect! We were able to hang it at her level, in an area that isn't really conducive to play. Her stuff isn't strewn about the floor anymore, and she feels special because it has her name on it!
Personal Creations also has a variety of other products that can be turned into personalized kids gifts. Because Kik is in Kindergarten and has to have everything labeled, Personal Creations is the perfect place to shop for Back to School products.
These products would definitely help Kik keep all of her stuff together!
