The Trash Can That Makes Cleaning Fun
Wish your kids would clean up their own rooms – without you nagging? We may have found the perfect item – just in time for the holiday shopping season. It’s the Spalding Wastepaper Basketball Basket - and at only $10 it’s a totally Fab & Fru find!
Turning cleaning into a game – why didn’t we think of this? I was at Bed, Bath & Beyond yesterday when I saw this trash basket that looks like a basketball hoop. Even better, it comes with it’s own “wastepaper basketball” instructions right on the label. But the real test was that my 6 & 9 year old kids lit up when they saw it – not their usual reaction to trash cans. In no time, the candy wrappers and old tic tac toe games were off the floor and being lobbed into the basket – without me having to ask.
I’m also planning to keep a few of these on hand for birthday gifts – they stack easily so you don’t need a lot of space to store them. And, I have to admit – it’s made cleaning more fun for me too!
