A few weeks ago I decided the boys were old enough to clean the table after meals. At 2 and 4 years old, I figured it was a bit of a long shot that the table would get clean, but worth a try. Boy was it worth it! Clearing and washing the table is now a fun filled after meal ritual for the boys. Best of all the table looks great when they were done.
For their sake I hope their enthusiasm for cleaning the table sticks with them.
