Every task that needs completed in our home is always supervised by two little helpers. This past evening was no exception. Our family room bodes 18 foot ceilings which I love....except for when it comes time to change a light bulb or a smoke detector battery. The girls helped by holding the ladder while the bulbs were changed. Then of course they needed to try out the ladder themselves.
Side note: Before you send me hate mail or leave negative comments....I was standing right beside that ladder in the event they should fall. And no, I don't typically let my kids play on ladders, but we have really been focusing on family team work, everyone helping, and taking turns lately. This was no exception. The girls took turns on the ladder while the other one held it for them. (You can see Addison holding the ladder for Alexis in the bottom photo) I believe that every task, even the most monotonous, can be turned into some form of learning/training experience.
