If you missed PART 1 of The Most Epic Spring Cleaning Idea Ever!, you'll want to make sure you check it out! We posted it just a couple of days ago, and this part will make the first part that much more fun!
We thought you might like some ideas for your "events".
Here 3 fun ones to get your creative juices flowing!
1. Match & Toss!: This one is so good, you can use it year round! Pile up all of the socks, in every load of laundry, after one day. From there, let both teams pull from the pile to match as many pairs as they can in a pre-determined amount of time. And if you want to make it a multi-event contest, add in the sock toss! What's that? Have an empty laundry basket set at a specific distance away from where you are matching the socks. Once the pair is matched, have teams roll them together, and toss them into the empty bin. Most in the basket before the clock expires, wins! Be sure to move away from areas where lamps, and other breakables could end up in pieces on the floor as the result of an errant attempt to make the basket. There are so many variations with this event, that you've probably already thought of a few yourself while reading this!
2. Philanthropic Poundage!: When it comes time to cleaning out the closets around the house, that usually doesn't get everyone excited. That is, until now! This one might take a while, so you can make the time limit whatever you want. An afternoon, a day, a weekend. During that time, place items of clothing that your family is going to give away to charity in a bag. Weigh the bag of each team, and the most weight wins. Be strategic when you split your teams up, so it's fair. A sweater from a 25 year old is going to weight more than your 8 year old, so pair your teams accordingly. When it's done, celebrate the joy found in helping others in need.
3. Ultimate DUSTination!: Each team gets a room of the house to dust. Again, after a pre-determined amount of time, an impartial judge gets to walk through each room. As they do, for every surface they can swipe a finger and still find dust, that is a point. The object of the game is to have the lowest score at the end. And just so everyone stays safe, limit this event to what you can reach from standing on the ground. Hey, and try to recruit a 7 foot friend to come help! :)
There are 3 great ideas.
