Kids Don’t Like Spring Cleaning, But Everyone Loves a Reward

No one likes spring cleaning. Let’s just clear that up. Adults don’t like it and kids really don’t like it unless…. Yes, unless there is some kind of reward involved. Are you trying to get your kids in the habit of donating perfectly good clothes or actually cleaning the bathroom one day a year? Then, we have a few ways that you turn this dreaded yearly experience into a widely celebrated national holiday!

Pizza

Pizza talks. If your kids are vegan, then vegan pizza talks. The bottom line is that kids will do almost anything for pizza. Hopefully, they don’t know the difference between the cheap stuff down the street and the premium slices. If they already have a sophisticated pizza palate, then its worth the extra expense if this means they will actually help out. Make the pizza announcement before cleaning. You will have much better results.

Keep Things Light 

A Selk’bag and upbeat music are all you need in order to keep a Spring Cleaning session fun. No need to make the cleaning process serious and robotic. This is probably the easiest way to make nothing or very little get done. Add games and competitions to see how can clean the fastest or the best. Your kids will love you and you’ll get one day without a temper tantrum. 

Break it Up

No one likes to spend all day cleaning so don’t force your kids to do this. They will probably start counting down the days until the turn 18 and go to college. Schedule Spring Cleaning throughout the week and assign one task a day. This allows your children to be held accountable and makes the tasks seem more manageable. 

Last thing, don’t use this as an opportunity to turn your kids into little cleaners. While it’s nice to have people to help with this huge tasks, they will get tired of being the hired help fairly quickly.

Size Chart

Kids (Ages 7+)

Please note, Selk'bag Kids models are intended for children ages 7 years and older.

A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer and for ensuring the safety of your child.  A bag that is too large for your child can represent a tripping risk when your child attempts to walk in the bag. 

Please note, that the sizing recommendations are meant for children of average weight as sizing is impacted by user weight.  For example, a Selk'bag will fit a child of below average weight with a taller frame, similar to a child of average weight and a shorter frame. Likewise, a person of above average weight will require a bag meant for someone taller.


Kids Medium:
Minimum Height: 4'0"  / 122 cm
Maximum Height: 4'6" / 137 cm

Kids Large: *
Minimum Height: 4'6"    / 137 cm
Maximum Height: 4'11" / 150 cm

* Please note, Kids size Large is significantly less wide than the Adult size Small.  An adult that measures between 4'6" and 4'11" should use the Adult Small over Kids Large.

 

Adult

A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer.  Please note, that the sizing recommendations are meant for people of average weight and sizing is impacted by user weight.  For example, a Selk'bag will fit a person of below average weight with a taller frame that exceeds the guidelines.  Likewise, a person of above average weight will require a bag meant for someone taller.


In-between sizes?  Please first consider the weight recommendations in the previous paragraph.  Second, please understand that a looser fit is better for more comfortable sleeping, while a tighter fit is better for mobility - but may restrict sleeping comfort if booties are left on.

We always recommend to size up if you are not completely sure. It's better to have a little bit more room while using your Selk'bag!
