Pleaning is a word that my children made up to describe the activity of clean a little, play a little. Today we are having a pleaning day. I set the timer for 30 minutes and we clean, then I set the timer for 30 minutes again, and we play. We will continue this cycle until the job is complete or the day is over, whichever comes first! Today's cleaning involves taking down, packing, and storing the Christmas decorations (we actually began this task last night) plus straightening all the rooms in the house. We are finding or making a place for every new toy, game, etc. Today's playing involves dolls, coloring and drawing, legos, stickers, and games.
