The new store centre has brought on an increased interest in cleaning and organizing. We have a rechargable carpet sweeper that we all use to clean up small messes throughout the day. As I was cleaningone of the children suggested that if it was smaller they could use it. So we sat down with the sweeper to investigate to see if we coudl make the handle smaller. We noticed that the handle had three sections, so we tried to unscrew the handle and voila! it worked! (they told me that they knew it was going to work) So we took the middle section out and now we have a child sized vacuum. The children decided that if it stand out and the ECE`s charged it for them that they could now clean up their own messes. It was a hit with everyone! Sometimes the simplest things are right infront of our eyes! This is an easy way to promote self help skills. And now you can use it at home!
