I asked them to clean the trampoline …
My children were cooped up in the house annoying me by bickering…when I asked them to go clean the trampoline. They were not impressed by the idea. I got them a washing up bowl with plenty of Fairy in it and some cloths and took them outside. There was lots of complaining and “It’s not fair!” being shouted by my poor abused children until I switched the hose on.
And fun ensued. Of course I didn’t ‘tell’ them they could soak each other through, so they thought they were getting away with it which made it even more fun! I just sat in the living room upstairs filming them and laughing to myself. Always better when they think it’s not allowed!
