To say that I love Swiffer Sweeper 2 In 1 Mop And Broom Floor Cleaner Starter Kit
would be the years biggest understatement. I’ve been using Swiffer products in my home for years.
I may even be Swiffers number one fan….
I love to share my favorite things…. so I got to have that “Oprah Moment”
Yes!!! YOU GET A SWIFFER and
YOU GET A SWIFFER…
I wish I could give every person in the WORLD a #biggreenbox!
But instead Jude and I hatched a plan to surprise two people with Swiffer Big Green Boxes!
That’s Jude, hiding in our preschool bathroom getting ready to surprise two lucky teachers with Big Green Boxes from Swiffer!
We decided to surprise teachers because we know how they appreciate anything that helps in their classroom and that is given to them!!
“Surprise, Ms. Veronica!!! ”
His teacher was super happy to receive a BIG GREEN BOX. And to have all the tools to keep a tidy classroom. In her Big Green Box she received a Swiffer mop, Swiffer wet clothes, Swiffer dry clothes, Swiffer duster and duster refills.
Yes, the teachers do some cleaning… however at our school we teach our kids to clean.
In fact we have 15 classroom jobs and now Swiffer Helper is on the list of jobs that one lucky kid gets to do each day.
5 Ways Chores Help Foster Kids’ Independence
- kids feel a sense of accomplishment when completing tasks especially helpful ones
- chores teach important life skills
- chores teach children to have respect for their property and environment
- kids love to accomplish things and gain confidence and pride in their chores
- kids become more independent… if they make a mess they know how to clean it up on their own
Needless to say, the Swiffer Effect has swept our classroom ( pun intended)!!!
What is the Swiffer Effect….
The Swiffer Effect: Swiffer’s core value is to make cleaning easier, no matter who is behind the Swiffer handle. American families are changing, and so are the cleaning challenges that the brand seeks to solve for consumers. The Swiffer Effect campaign highlights those cleaning challenges in the context of real American families’ real lives. Watch here for more Swiffer Effect
Look at Ava, Swiffer up all of that collage material!
Swiffers are so easy for children to push around and use. Brooms can be quite cumbersome.
Are you thinking wow that Swiffer looks a little small???
It’s a Kids’ Swiffer. No Swiffer doesn’t make a child sized Swiffer.
Look below to see how it’s done.
To create a kids’ Swiffer simply remove the middle pole.
We do this at home too! Jude loves to Swiffer at our house and chores are great for creating independent children.

I agree with teaching kids to help — it is great for them and for mom or teacher as well. I always let the kids help in the kitchen and around the house. Yard work the same way. I agree with you Swiffer is great!!

Awesome. Some people think kids should be kids and i agree to a certain extent. But they need opportunities outside of play which help them achieve and build new skills.
