What's the best way to stop siblings from fighting on a Saturday afternoon? Cleaning! They were all excited to help once the chores were handed out. Laura really wanted to wash the dishes in the sink, but I only let her dry them, because if you want something done right you should really do it yourself.
Other fun tasks they like to do are vacuuming (no, they don't get everything vacuumed up, but they get the middles very well) and washing the windows (sometimes it is hard to tell if there were more streaks and prints on them before or afterward) and wash the floor with spray bottles and towels (they usually sing, "It's A Hard Knock Life" from Annie when they do this chore) Don't let them fool you though, they love it and sometimes beg to do it. Sometimes.
