Kids Cleaning Buckets (and a HUGE Give Away!)

I posted my cleaning schedule last week when I shared my cleaning closet redo and some of you were curious if my girls help with the household work.

Evie helps out too, but my two older girls are old enough to do some real cleaning as part of their weekly chores. To make their chores a little more exciting (a stretch, I know!) and to give them more ownership, the girls and I decided they needed their own cleaning kits. So we went to Home Depot together and shopped for some supplies to make the kits. We found a huge display with duct tape in all different colors and we thought that would make a cute (and waterproof!) decoration for simple white buckets.

We also picked up some colorful nylon cording.

The girls and I worked together to wrap the buckets in layers of the duct tape. If you roll the bucket while pulling the tape really taut, there won't be any air bubbles or wrinkles.

Then we used a hot glue gun to wrap the handles in the nylon cording.

It's surprising to me how putting in even a little extra effort to make something beautiful gives a household item so much more importance. My girls love these buckets and they've been diligently doing their chores lately! Success!

I would use it to help clean our new house before we move in!

M Frej said...

Such a great idea, I would have loved that as a child. I don't have kids yet but I think making their own cleaning kits would be top of my list.

When I was little my mum used to play our favourite music on Saturday mornings and we would happily do our chores as it meant the sooner we were done the quicker we could go outside to play:)

kh said...

Love the project! I'm so inspired to organize my closets now!

Kristin Whelan said...

Where to start... I am planning a minor reno of my girls bathroom!

Awesome giveaway! I would use it to organize our laundry room - add some shelving, paint, get organized! I think I would also definitely make some fun duct tape buckets! So cute!

Sara T said...

Getting my basement laundry room organized before baby # 2 comes!

I love the buckets! I'd like to tackle my Entry Coat Closet at some point. It just doesn't make sense now and I need it to make sense and work better!

Thanks for the giveaway and I LOVE your blog ;)

dianne anderson said...

I would love to win this great giveaway! My cleaning/organizing projects are endless so the gift card and cleaning supplies would be Heaven Sent.

Benny Sequeira said...

Craft closet organization is on the prority list.

Wanting What I Have said...

Oh my! I would LOVE to revamp my tiny laundry "closet" and under our kitchen sink-both home to all our cleaning supplies, and both dated, dirty, and in need of something fresh and colorful!

emily said...

darling buckets...maybe i should do that to my own cleaning bucket to motivate myself. i would use the gift card for paint for my basement!

Need to clean and organize my husband's basement office!

Kristen said...

I just love the idea of the kids making their own cleaning buckets! Great way to get them involved!
I need to clean up my basement laundry area - get rid of some crickets making a home down there - you know, make it "less scary" so I could definitely use some supplies!

Becky said...

Well, we just moved into a new home yesterday, so we pretty much need new EVERYTHING. With $200, though, I might get new kitchen hardware (because three knobs are inexplicably missing) a gallon of paint, and a new light fixture.

Linden said...

We just bought a new house so I am FULL of project ideas to make it our own! Painting, new shelves, new hardware, etc!

LisaM said...

Love this idea! How fun. Shoot, those buckets might even keep ME motivated. :-)

I'd love a giftcard as I'm sprucing up our home this year with lots of ideas. First up, some paint for the scratches on our yellow walls in the kitchen - dining room chairs can do some damage! :-) And then some hooks for hanging a chandelier and my new shower caddy.

Thanks for the chance!!

Emily said...

Would love to add crown molding to our bedroom!

Emily said...

I'd love to spruce up & organize my guest bath!

Would live to win; were in the process of buying a new home so lots of projects on the way...I see a new chandelier in my future!

C. Marks said...

We, too, are redoing the laundry room!

house185 said...

What a great idea to get the kids more involved! I have endless projects going on at the moment - a HD gift card would not go to waste here! :)

Beth said...

I would give the gift certificate to my son who is making storage benches for an Eagle Scout project. (I also need some paint primer for plastic to paint a small flower pot. I'll be reading back through your blog to find your favorite, because I know there's a recommendation in there, and I LOVE that you do that!)

Kara said...

We are getting ready to move so I have two houses worth of plenty of cleaning in my near future!

Xarcady D said...

Neat idea with the duct tape. I was given some colorful duct tape a while ago, but had no idea what to do with it. Now I've got some ideas to work on.

My next project is dealing with our back hall/mudroom. There's got to be a way to organize coats, boots, mops, brooms, and extra cat food and liter so it doesn't look like a compete mess all the time.

Madeline Johnson said...

I would use this gift certificate to organize and redo our master bedroom closet!! They are in dire need of a refresh!

Joy Tietje said...

I love the bucket idea! I would get the supplies to make a bucket for my toddler son, and some organization supplies for my tiny cabinet where I store cleaning supplies.

Megan Dock said...

I just bought a new house, so lots and lots of projects planned!

Suzanne said...

Oh, I'm dreaming of a garden already (though it's snowing here AGAIN today). Would love to buy some seeds and seedlings and pots for the porch!

younganddomestic said...

Thanks for the giveaway! You have inspired me to tackle my unattractive closets :)

I would use the giftcards towards Spring Cleaning supplies and our vegetable garden!

I have major cleaning to do everywhere, but mainly the garage!

So cute! Love those buckets. I am planning to tackle my basement play room/ den next. $200 and cleaning supplies would be so awesome right now! Thx!

Paint and a couple of Purdy paint brushes would be first on my list. Oh, and a couple of drop cloths and I saw a rug there that I'm pining for and... and... and... No doubt about it, I could put that gc to good use should I be lucky enough to win. Thanks so much for the giveaway and the opportunity to win!

Esra said...

I'm considering making that kit for myself, haha!

I just moved into a new apartment and the spare bedroom is a horrifying mess. I would definitely tackle that.

We are on a mission to re-organize our entry and closet space- it's an NYC rental so we gotta make every inch count!

Amy said...

I'm the fundraiser for a public library system, and our three major fundraising projects are likened to filling three "buckets." I'm going to use your idea to decorate three buckets to use as visual tools for the next meeting. Thanks so much!

amanda dillman said...

My new home did not come with a shower door and I NEED a shower door, OH so bad and happened to be at Home Depot yesterday and saw a shower door I loved, and that they do custom installation so the gift card would help me out SO much!!

Bethany DeVore said...

I would do some serious organizing of my cleaning supplies and laundry closet!

Janna McCalley said...

I need to copy this idea...for me! We're renovating, so I feel like I'm always needing to clean...I'm sure you can relate!

Back Row Girl said...

OMG, this is perfect! Love the bucket idea!

I just stripped (most of) the wallpaper in my boys' bathroom, so I'm going to be patching holes and evening out the walls (boo) and then painting (YAY!) very soon.

Afton said...

we have a utility room that is about to be painted and tiled. once that's done, that sucker's going to need organized. it's a mess!

Stef said...

I want to remake some of my ikea furniture, but first I need supplies... and motivation.

Angie said...

My kids have a magnetic chore chart. I wouldn't say it's super fun, but it does help us stay on track with daily and weekly cleaning!

Lena said...

How fun! We're finishing the kitchen and then have a bathroom redo on the list - there's lots to clean up there!

Nicole said...

I'd use the gift card to do some major organization in my basement. I have a pegboard wall, which holds cleaning supplies and tools, that is just crying for attention and a pretty update/

Cayce Wegman said...

I'm "nesting" right now so I have multiple projects I'd like to get started one being to finish painting the nursery!

Amber H said...

We have so many projects to tackle, I'm not sure where I'd start! Thanks!

DJC said...

We have a sonos system in our house and we have an upbeat cleaning playlist. Everyone put some of their favorites on it. We hit random play and dance through the chores.

dana said...

Ooh, nice! I would use it to organize/clean our coat closet!

Elizabeth Downie said...

My bathroom is in desperate need of a makeover! That's what I would use this for!

Caitlin said...

We have shelves similar to yours in our laundry room. I would love to clean them up and make them as pleasant as yours!

Pearl Gray said...

We recently moved into a new (old) house and I've been desperate to get the laundry room organized! A fresh coat of paint, new hardware, and some drawer and shelf organizers would go a long way to making it more functional!

Jo said...

I would use it to freshen up my closet with new shelving and paint! It's only thirteen years overdue!

mkd. said...

What a perfect, timely giveaway! We just moved into a new-to-us house three months ago, and would love to tear out the old carpet (that's giving me lots of bad allergy symptoms) for a new, clean floor from Home Depot! Three cheers for sprucing up a home AND health in 2014!

erin said...

I have a super duper scary closet under the stairs that could really use some de-zombiefication & organizing!

Sarah Onken said...

I would use it to buy organizational tools. I am always decluttering and trying to find ways to organize what is really important!

JMcKie said...

The cleaning buckets are ADORABLE!!! I would definitely make some for my girls. :)

andrewcoy said...

We're moving at the end of the month, so cleaning both the old and new home!

Erin Rothney said...

My basement needs a major cleaning/clean out! Great giveaway!

Jamie said...

I have a few things on my list, namely reorganizing my kitchen and painting my cabinets. With a soon-to-be-mobile baby, I need to get everything dangerous out of the lower cabinets, and organizing/painting will make the overall aesthetic nicer.

Elisha said...

We just moved into a new apartment that definitely still needs a good cleaning!

Meredith said...

With 2 roommates, things can get messy fast! We have a spare closet that I would love to transform like you did! Such a fab and fun idea!

I'm about to deliver my third child and so I've been nesting like crazy--bring on the cleaning products!

Unknown said...

This is a great idea! My oldest has chores written on clothes pins that he has to move from a do-side to a done-side on a door hanger. The visual of that really seems to help. I think having a bucket like this would take it to the next level. So cute!

Stephanie Stough said...

Spring cleaning and a master closet organization session are at the top of my list! The buckets turned out SO cute!

Love this. Having a dedicated kit for the kids would make them so much more inclined to help around the house. Got to try it!

christine said...

My fiance and I are moving to a new [old] house on Wednesday---some Home Depot money would definitely be put to good use as we fix it up!

Erin said...

When I was a kid my parents would blast music while we all cleaned the house on Saturday morning. If it was nice out all the windows were open. It just put me in a great mood to get things done with everyone!

Bebett said...

Just finished organizing the pantry. My next projects are organizing the attic and the garage.

Jackie C said...

Great project! We are currently working on updating our bathroom...lots of cleaning to be done!

Elizabeth said...

This would come in very handy to clean out and organize our utility/storage room!

angela said...

There is no end to the ideas i have for what I would use that gift card on! To keep my kids excited about doing chores we have a magnet chart. They get really excited to move things from one side of the chart to the other :)

Both kids graduate college this spring. Knowing what their "first apartment budgets" will be....I fully expect filthy, you get what you pay for digs......this will get them started on the diy/no mom around to do it for you oath :) ssdmmf@yahoo.com

We need a facelift for our laundry room! Thanks for the inspiration!

Emily said...

I'm slowly working my way through our house--puttying, scraping, scrubbing, painting; I'm at Home Depot all the time!

Natty said...

I've been doing so well with little organizing projects in our little rented home lately and feel like I"m finally on the home stretch. This would sure help finish things off!

Kristin said...

The entryway off of our kitchen needs some sprucing up. I would love to paint and add some crown molding. Knocking down all the cobwebs would also be a vast improvement. :)

Anonymous said...

My house needs a top to bottom dusting. Blinds, fans, baseboards. If only I could find a way to get my 4 year old excited about helping. Maybe I'll put together her own dusting caddy.

Andrea said...

Those buckets are adorable. I love the makeover of the cleaning closet!

I am in the process of moving twins into their own rooms and reclaiming the "toy" room as the master it started as when we first moved in so believe me, projects, cleaning, packing and organizing are happening here little by little every day but I think this would go towards building out a small closet in the eaves into open shelves for one of the girls' room.

Natty said...

I have been doing some retrofitting and organizing of closets myself lately (why do all closets come with one shelf and a hanging bar?! This would sure help with the last couple I have to organize!

Rachael said...

Our daughter loves to help clean but our son doesn't so he usually needs a good bribe :) We often give them quarters to spend at garage sales on Saturday mornings. That way they have more fun at garage sales and they can choose what they want to purchase.

Laura said...

I would use this to build my chicken coop!

SaraP. said...

I need to organize my entryway. My son loves pushing the swiffer around. He is a big help on cleaning day!

Steph Gillette said...

These are great! I have been taking weekly trips to Home Depot since I recently bought my first home and it needs a lot of...assistance. This house is the first in almost ten years of living in small apartments that offers me tons of closets - so I'd like to get them properly organized!

Jody said...

I've been dying to turn the dining room closet into something a bit less like a coat closet, and more like a party and tableware station...this would be the perfect jump start!

Cynthia said...

I need to organize my laundry room! Thanks :)

Sarah said...

Looking forward to making over my own cleaning closet!

Mrs. Always Wright :) said...

I need a cute bucket to movivate me too and I'm the mom:)I need more organization in every room in my home, but I need paint, supplies for shelves, and a new mirror for our guest bath!

Felicia said...

My kids are young, but I've learned to encourage them to help me with the bigger chores so it becomes a family activity, rather than a chore. They love helping me with dishes, laundry, vacuuming and mopping.

Rich said...

I would use it to *finally* organize my laundry room / utility closet, which is a tiny, disorganized, embarrassing, mess of a room right now!

Jen said...

My office closet! We just moved a few months ago, and all of my important paperwork and all of my craft supplies are thrown together in boxes (and on the floor). Time to get everything organized!

Tyler Perez said...

Love this idea!

Inspired to clean and organize my storage unit.

Sarah said...

I'm planning a remodel on an area on my main level. Part of it will incorporate a cleaning closet which I am very excited about. I will love having space to stock up on supplies, and I love your great ideas on making it attractive, too.

Meg said...

I would use it to finally organize our tiny, messy, embarrassing excuse for a laundry room/utility closet!

Lauren said...

I plan to organize my pantry!

Cindy said...

This bucket is a really great idea. I have 1 girl that loves cleaning and would love her own cleaning bucket, 1 girl who loves to clean when it's allowance time only and 1 girl who doesn't know the meaning of cleaning.
I think the project I would most love to do is make our "coat closet" into a real coat closet and not a re-purposed pantry.

Aliceart said...

I have finally found the energy to begin anew in my house. After years of eldercare for multiple parents, our exhaustion and lack of time meant that nothing ever got done in our own home. I love the buckets! Anything that makes cleaning up and out more fun is a definite win/win. The buckets can be used for so many things, too.

Crystal S said...

The stairway down to our basement off of our kitchen(where we have plastic bags and mops hanging and the broom just resting on the stairs) is so dingy!!! It hasn't been painted in decades, the old wood stairs look terrible and we could do a much better job of making it cleaning product friendly!!!

I can't wait to tackle our ONE (yes, one) closet in our new apartment. We downsized and unfortunately when we moved everything "extra" got tossed into the closet to be dealt with "later." Well, it's officially later! This would definitely help!!

clean and organize our school room!

ro-grammie said...

my daughter has a 2 year old and a new baby. their whole house is a chaotic mess. the kitchen especially is a disaster zone. I would make her a bucket and then use it first to give her kitchen a fresh new start!

Your cleaning closet turned out great; I understand how opening the door to a mess can be so discouraging and that happy new cleaning closet (it's so large!) looks great. I need to do a similar project in our Laundry Room.

Kristen said...

I'm in the process of moving in with my boyfriend. His apartment is so old and has very little closet space. The bedroom closet isn't even deep enough to hold hangers! So I will be organizing/superman-ing a way to store all our clothes!

Leigh said...

I would have never thought to do this but it's so true that these small things make cores seem so much more doable! I would love to make my husband's and my closet more organized.

We just bought a huge old home to use for a variety of ministries, but first it needs a little cleaning and painting love (bright orange 70s bedroom anyone?). We are sowly working room by room and the next up is the laundry and the master bath that is the same orange as the 70s bedroom.

I think it needs a little paint and some dividers and a little bit of organizational help! I love your closet redo! It's inspired me to work on my house too.

Definitely painting the kitchen! I've been looking at the torn-down-wallpaper yellow grossness for too long.

We're about to remodel our master bathroom and have a big painting project in the works, too. We can always use more cleaning products!

Meagan said...

I have a storage room that desperately needs a good cleaning and painting.

Cassidy Mickelsen said...

I have learned that what helps my kids the most is when we all clean together. I can't be asking them to clean when I'm all done and have to relax. I'm cleaning my room while they clean theirs. It seems more fair in their eyes :) casidyanne at hot mail dot com

Elizabeth Moon said...

I would repaint my living room--a brighter, prettier white. For my kids, I tried a similar cleaning bucket idea but used cheap plastic baskets that didn't really hold what they needed to. I think this bucket idea is much better--looks like it would actually hold spray bottles!

Karin Waltz said...

new year, new projects! update outside lighting and paint the cabinets in office

Mrs Robinson said...

We are working on upgrading our shelving situation as I am a huge lover of books and am constantly needing more room to store them!. I also don't have a dedicated "office" space (tiny house!) so we are planning a floor to ceiling bookcase with a built in desk surface that can also function as a serving area when we entertain. We are asking a lot of just one unit so the planning stage is very important. We have yet yo hit on just the right design, but we are getting close and I'm excited to whip our space into shape!

Deb Krevdo said...

I love this! I am inspired by this to finally paint my clean supply room/laundry room and create a version of your bucket! Cheers! Debbie

Dina said...

We would use it for painting our new place! Time to move yet again in NYC...

laura said...

You inspired me to be better about getting my girls to help with chores. I made a sticker chart to inspire them. It is kind of working. Their "prize" is all sleeping in the same room and making the other room into a playroom.

Deb Krevdo said...

I Love this! I am inspired to paint my cleaning supply room/laundry room. I have a painting in there which I will refer to for the color - It's going to look great!

Really fun, loud music helps our kids when we clean. Helps me, too!

There's always cleaning to do. I just try to stay ahead of it. I think we'll have a renovation project when the warmer weather hits, so there will definitely be clean-up from that.

I'm dreaming of spring... CLEANING! Can't wait for the weather to warm up and to totally scour the house. New products would help!

I have some large built in book shelves that need regular attention (all that dusting!) I would love the jump start!

Oh for sure I need to clean and organize my laundry room. It has so much potential, but is so poorly organized, poor thing!!!!

So cute! I'd put buckets in each bathroom, so I'd have supplies ready to use!

Love this project! I wonder if I made my boyfriend one of those buckets if he would enjoy cleaning more...?
I would use the money to de-clutter and organize our laundry closet!
