Allison McDonald is a former preschool teacher who now spends her days learning with her 3-year-old son and baby daughter. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband and two children.

Who doesn't love miniture things? I love smaller but functional household items for my kids so they can really join in the fun and work of daily chores.

I picked up this bucket, clothes , duster , brush and dust pan all for a few dollars at the dollar store.

We talked about what each tool was for, then went around the house tidying up. I love having his own cleaning tools that I know are free from any cleaning chemicals . Also it gives him a good sense of pride in our home by participating in taking care of it now that he has the right tools.
