I always struggle with what to gift my daughter for the holidays. I am constantly trying to declutter and move towards a more minimalist lifestyle, yet I still want the holidays to feel special. Enter this list of the Best Gifts for Clean Kids! This list showcases products that encourage learning, sustainability, cleaning, and personal responsibility in a way that feels fun.
Best Gifts for Clean Kids
Do you or your family members accidentally step on small toys like legos, small figurines, or tiny doll accessories? It’s so jarring and unexpectedly painful! This kid-friendly vacuum cleaner separates dirt and dust from the toys while vacuuming up the toys so you wind up with dust-free toys!
This toddler toy cleaning set allows your child to practice cleaning (like mom and dad!) and makes cleaning fun. Mimicking everyday chores helps to teach responsibility and boost-self esteem so you are encouraging play and responsibility at the same time.
Involve your kids in cleaning the car. This activity kit includes kid-sized cleaning items to actually clean your car – not just pretend! Including kids in cleaning from a young age helps to set the tone that it is fun to help clean and part of being a family member.
Set a positive example of using sustainable, non-toxic materials by gifting your kids a compostable toothbrush. When finished with this toothbrush, you can bury it in your garden. Dental hygienist Theresa McCarter, RDH, BSDH, suggests, “Consider using bamboo toothbrushes and recycle them by using them in the garden as vegetable markers or use them for a painting project.”
Step stools invite kids to be in the kitchen at countertop level so they can observe meal prep and help cook and clean in the sink and on the countertop. Kids love to feel included, and inviting them to participate at eye level will make them feel engaged and part of the action.
You can turn toy pickup or laundry sorting into a gift-able moment (which inherently makes it more inviting!) by gifting your kids a storage/laundry basket. Involve kids in putting their laundry in the hamper when it’s dirty, and bringing the dirty clothes hamper to the laundry room.
This interactive play set is great for bath or pretend play. This play cleaning set includes cleaning supplies that spray, squirt, and scrub, which makes it great for a bathtime toy too. It helps to teach responsibility and supports fine motor and gross motor skills.
