Cleanup fun

My kids love when it's their turn to clean up at the sink. A big part of cleanup is "towering the water bowls". I don't know how it got started, but it's become a competitive sculptural opportunity, and it enables them to all dry out nicely. This is today's version.

I don't know where I got all these nice blue bowls from, but they are great for short-handled brushes. By the way, the top water bowl is a Kool-Aid container; I have lots of them. I love the way they slope in at the top. They are very stable for using long-handled brushes,and the inward curve makes wiping off brushes less likely to be problematic.

  1. I'm seriously impressed!! I have group of third graders for whom it is a challenge to rinse out their water bowls and stack them upside down in a dish drainer. The upside down concept seemed to be a new one. (Perhaps because so few kids have seen a dish drainer, what with dishwashers in all their kitchens!!!!
