Our vacuum cleaner has a handle that can raise and lower. When it is in it's lower position it is the perfect size for my little boys.
Once I got them to pick up all their stuff. After a lot of complaining that it wasn't their mess (yeah right!) The fun began.
They took turns and I think that carpet got vacuumed about 3 time by each of them. Oh, well they had fun and their room is FINALLY clean. Now maybe it will stay that way since they were the ones to do the work!
Cleaning is great!!!
