Let's face it; even adults don't like doing chores. But, small tasks like making the bed or picking up toys is a great way for kids to start learning responsibility. You can make these tasks more fun and inspire your little ones to help out around the house with this simple game.
For best wall hang, use a smooth surface and position the adhesive stripes horizontally. Cleaning and conditioning products may affect adhesion.
