What are some ways you ladies have found to involve your little ones in your day?

I have found my children want to get involved in just about everything I do, from cleaning the bathroom to reading whatever it is I'm reading:) Just curious as to how other mommies have handled that- so far, I have turned it into fun- like mopping the floor with sponges on our hands and knees to make 'bubbles'. Or help rinsing and washing dishes, or letting them 'drive' the vacuum or 'read' the colorful ads in the paper. Of course there is playing with them, but how about the times you HAVE to get things done, and you have little ones? You get the idea!:) I am sure there are lots more fun creative ways I have not thought of!

you sound like youre doing a great job so far!

one other thing you can do is ask them to draw you a pretty picture of something,while youre doing whatever around the house.and if they finish,keep giving them paper ;)

also you can try to get them to sing songs.

you could get them to help you dp the washing by asking them to get the pegs for you ,

washing the car, help you cook if it is safe for them maybe get them to stir a salad or something that wont do any harm, doing the gardening by pulling out the weeds

hope this helps
