Making Spring Cleaning a Family Tradition

Spring Cleaning is more than just cleaning your house for Spring. It’s having a day set aside for everyone in the family to pitch in and help out. Everyone pitching in can help make cleaning enjoyable and stress-free, so I decided to give a few tips that can help you get started organizing and teaching your family the importance of pitching in to do spring cleaning.

Spring cleaning is something that I have been doing since I was a child. Each year my family and I work to clean our home and prepare it for the warm weather to come. It is a tradition that my mom started when I was younger, and I encourage any parent to continue with their own children.


History of Spring Cleaning


Did you know that spring cleaning has been a part of our culture since the Mayans? Believe it or not, it’s true. And you can take part in this history by helping your kids learn about the importance of cleaning, and why it’s so good for all of us!


Spring Cleaning is one of those things that comes up every year and we’re not sure why. But there are a couple of theories behind it. One theory is that because the earliest signs of spring start in March, other things must be spring cleaned as well. Another theory says that it was started during Lent by some churches who required their parishioners to clean before Easter (which falls in April). Whatever the reason, it seems like everyone does some form of spring cleaning.


Teaching Life Skills


Oh, the trials and tribulations of spring cleaning. Well, at least for me, these annual rituals are way more than just thorough vacuuming and scrubbing bathroom tile grout; they’re an opportunity to remodel my habits and organize my life! I purge things I no longer use, recycle packing materials (where possible), and set up new systems for things that could use a little organization. But even as I dust off my rags, grab some kitchen cleaner from the cabinet under the sink and adopt a grim resolve to get every last speck of dust out of the house, I know that my children are also learning these essential life skills that will benefit them their whole lives.


Here are some of the life skills your children will learn by participating in spring cleaning each year:


  • Organization
  • Responsibility
  • Ownership
  • Healthy Habits
  • Teamwork
  • Work Ethic
  • Self-Esteem


Spring cleaning is a great time for families to work together and improve the home. It’s also a great time for kids to learn family values and life skills that will help them as adults.
