4 Simple Bathroom Chores For Kids Under 10 with Cottonelle CleanCare

No one ever seems to have time to change the toilet paper roll these days, with Cottonelle CleanCare mega rolls – it last a lot longer than before! One of the biggest struggles as a parent, let alone a single parent is getting your children to do housework and chores. Something I wish I learned sooner than later, was to start when they were young. Teaching them when they’re around the age of 3 to 4 years old.

Taking out the trash

It’s as simple as that, we re-use our Walmart bags from the store in the trash can in the bathroom. It’s small and easier for the kids to pickup and take out to the trash. It’s important to teach the kids to take out the trash and keep each room neat and not messy.

Wiping down the counters

Instead of giving the kids a spray bottle and rag to clean off the counters, walls, mirror and door. It’s easier to use those easy wipes that are harmless for children to use to wipe down and kill the germs in the bathroom.

Picking up laundry

While we don’t try to keep a basket in the bathroom, because honestly there’s no room for that in there. However there’s always a few items thrown behind the door, simple light tasks are easiest for little kids. While they may be to young to actually wash the clothes, helping collect the dirty laundry, beats from bending over and doing it yourself.

Replacing the toilet paper

Something as simple as re-stocking the toilet paper, seems to be a challenge for most adults. But this is a simple task for small hands. Hannah added a roll of Cottonelle Mega Roll CleanCare. There’s 20% more tissue paper and 12 mega rolls are equal to 48 regular rolls, which is pretty insane.

Other little jobs in the bathroom could be sweeping, cleaning the toilet, but that could gross out some people. When I worked as a housekeeper for this one dirty hotel, nothing can gross me out anymore. Between that and being a mom of four, I’ve seen it all.

With the amount of little people in the house during the summer break, it’s well needed. We also have a back-up toilet paper holder that Jacob filled, that is good for him because he’s learning to stack and count as he adds the rolls.

So we headed to Walmart this week to stock up on Cottonelle CleanCare mega rolls, There’s two options for busy working parents, you can order online and get it shipped to your house or you can order what you need and then pickup your goods at Walmart. I think that sounds pretty awesome as a single mom that works two jobs. However they don’t do it close enough to me yet, the closest Walmart that does pickup is over 30 minutes away.

Does your child have chores? Who normally cleans the bathroom? Have you tried Cottonelle CleanCare?

  1. Your kids are so cute. I think chores should be introduced at a young age that’s how my mom did things and that is what I did with my kids. Everyone hates cleaning the bathroom, but you’re right there are little things that they can do to help out.

  2. Sometimes replacing the toilet paper is one of the most annoying things to do. Yet again, having zero toilet paper when you’re in need is very much worse! I like to keep a bottle of chlorox wipes under the sink that I can easily grab in order to wipe down the counters.

  3. My kids have chores and yes we too use Cottonelle Cleancare. Man, it is a challenge in our home sometimes to have the toilet roll replaced…lol! I love how large thee rolls are and the ripple texture, they really do clean well.

  4. Ahhh, what fun for these kiddos to use Cottonelle Cleanware! I know being a mom can be challenging, as I have two of them myself!
    PS, your kids are so darn cute! mine are all grown up!

  5. Kids can be quite useful around the house… I should’ve had a couple ; -) All joking aside, I think it’s great that you’re teaching your kids responsibility and giving them age-appropriate chores. P.S. I kind of miss Cottonelle, I can’t get it in Denmark and it was my go-to TP when I lived in the States.

  6. Jacob is so cute! He seems totally prepared for his role.
    My son just turned five, and I’m impressed that there are chores he can now do. Bathroom chores are important! Especially because kids mess up the bathroom the most! (or my husband..)
    Great toilet paper, of course.

  7. Sometimes the simplest tasks around the house for kids to do gives kids confidence to tackle other chores. No one likes taking out the thrash, but, using Walmart bags makes that chore not as daunting of a chore! 2 of our kids were always notorious for leaving dirty laundry lying around!

  8. What a cute idea to get the kids involved. We have chores in our home but I have not had them do much in the bathroom. I wills tart doing that though. Great ideas! BTW, we love using Cottonelle in our home! Such a great and soft tp.

  9. adriana says:

    They are such cuties! These are great ways to get kids involved in cleaning – I love the idea of teaching them young to pick up their laundry. It’s one of those things that you should always do! Great tips!

  10. Wendy R. says:

    I’m in agreement with the other comments, cute kiddos!! Regular chores are important. 🙂

  11. I did have the kids do chose when they were young, they did not mind. I always cleaned the bathroom.

  12. monique s says:

    such a good idea to get the kids helping early and these are great chores

  13. Natalie says:

    These are all basic chores any kid should be able to do.

  14. Cathy French says:

    Picking up laundry and changing the toilet paper are the two most important. BTW your kids are adorable.

  15. My kids don’t have specific chores however, I do make sure they are as independent as possible in everything they do (i.e., cleaning their rooms, bringing plates to the kitchen sink, etc.) I guess those are actually chores but I like to think of it as just taking care of their own things and being responsible. I’ve never actually called them ‘chores’ to them, come to think of it 😉

  16. Kristen says:

    Love his “Don’t grow up” shirt!

  17. Vicki Wurgler says:

    that back-up toilet paper holder is a good idea I just keep an extra one under the sink

  18. annette fisher says:


  19. Susan Smith says:

    Yes, our children have chores. They pick up the bathroom and wipe the counter but I do the most of the more involved cleaning.

  20. I had chores when I was a child

  21. It’s good to see kids being helpful.

  22. Adorable kids! My son’s chore is to keep the toilet tissue stocked in the bathrooms and to wash all of our towels each week. My daughter does the dishes and litter box.

  23. Changing out the toilet paper is a perfect chore for little hands. Agree! We have chores at our home as well. With six kiddos at home we cannot do everything alone. Sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, taking trash out, relining trash cans, and laundry are some of my kids chores. And your sons shirt is TOO cute!!

  24. Chantelle Daigle says:

    Kids like to have a “job” and I find they’re far more excited to do than I am! Haha.

  25. That’s a good list of things kids can help with. Keep them busy and learning.

  26. Cynthia C says:

    Good habits start young. It’s a good thing to teach kids to clean up after themselves.

  27. I don’t have kids yet, but an easy chore would be for them to pick up dirty towels and put in the laundry basket.

  28. Dan Denman says:

    I like that list of chores. Young children can definitely change the toilet paper and put their dirty clothes in a hamper.

  29. ladymagnolia99 says:

    I believe that children need small chores to teach them, and this is a very simple chore to do.

  30. angela s says:

    Good ideas! Kids can do simple chores around the house to help out.

  31. I haven’t used this brand in a while, but sounds like you had a good experience. I especially like the pick-up option at the store!

  32. Replacing the toilet paper is always a good idea, haha 😉

  33. Cynthia R says:

    It’s never too early to teach your kids household chores, and it’s a good idea to get them to do small and big tasks as well.

  34. I always had chores for my children to do when they were small and when I now go and visit my grandchildren I have them do the same type of chores.. garbage detail for the boys and tidy up cleaning for the girls…With 6 children there are plenty of little hands to help….

  35. I wish those were the only chores I had to do

  36. Peggy Johnson says:

    I think it’s important to teach chores at an early age and we also implemented the above chores with our girls. They were easy ways to earn a reward sticker

  37. Stephanie Larison says:

    Great tips! My oldest is 7 and she does most of these just because lol, When she’s looking for a chore for some cash I tell her to wipe down the bathroom and she likes doing it.

  38. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I love cottonelle and always get my kids to replace the roll. My husband never replaces it!

  39. wen budro says:

    That’s a wonderful list of chores for children under ten. I like that they’re simple yet the chores will boost my children’s confidence and self-esteem.

  40. I believe it’s a good idea to get the kids started early. Otherwise, they will end up being too lazy to help like my current situation. I end up doing it on my own 🙁

  41. sabrinatemplin says:

    That’s so awesome you get your kids involved at a young age 🙂

  42. These are some great suggestions for chores for children under 10.

  43. Daniel M says:

    everyone should help around the house

  44. My youngest is 4 and he is constantly asking for more jobs!! He wants to be a big boy and help the bigger boys do their work too. The older kids just accept that this is their home and they have a responsibility to help out. Many hands do make work light!! People coming into the house are amazed that the kids are happily chatting while doing dishes or whatever job is at hand. I think the reason they are happy doing housework is that I am too and work with them. That way they don’t feel like I just had kids to do my work!!

  45. Richard Hicks says:

    Super kids helping. Yep, Learn those chores early in life

  46. Chore charts are great tools! Picture chart for non-readers too!

  47. I still need to teach my 5 apparently to put those rolls of paper on. They are plain lazy and will set them anywhere because they don’t want to take a second to do it right

  48. Get the kids started early. Teach them well.

  49. Darcy L Koch says:

    I think it is a good idea to allow your little ones to help out with the household chores. Of course, make them age appropriate.

  50. My kids love replacing the toilet paper and they help me all the time in keeping the bathroom clean!

  51. Lisa Garland says:

    I really wish I had started this with my daughter when she was younger. She is 16 now and doesn’t wanna clean her bathroom. Good ideas, start early folks.
