Turn on Some Music and Have Fun With Your Routines

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

Do you make it fun to do your routines and Home Blessings? Some of you are so focused on checking off your list that you forget to have fun while you are doing your routines.

Today, I want you to turn on some fun music and do your Morning Routine. Then, I want you to include your children in this fun!

One thing I have noticed in the summer is that my boys can drag out their morning routine. One way to help move them along is to turn on the tunes and dance while I am getting ready. As they come through the kitchen to get food, I can dance and sing with them.

If they are in the living room, I can go in there and sing and dance, too. Today, your zone mission is to move the furniture in the Living Room and vacuum. Some of you just rolled your eyes and sighed. I heard you!

Find a fun kids’ song. Turn it up loud. Get out your feather duster and dance and sing while you dust. It will be a lot more fun this way, and it is good for your children to see you happy and singing (even if you can’t carry a tune in a bucket).

Anytime you feel that your routines are dragging, turn on some upbeat music. My favorite music selection is the FlyKids CD from The FlyLady. I can do a mean tango impression to the ToyBox Tango.
Having fun is contagious! Spread it through your home!
Your Zone Mission today is to move the furniture and vacuum.
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
My menu plan for Tuesday is Taco Soup and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
