Show & Tell Friday -- Household gadget

I was trying to think about what I could do for Show & Tell Friday as I have skipped a few weeks now. Then last night after we finished supper Missy Blue saw the crumbs she had dropped and got out of her chair bringing back our Swivel Sweeper and proceeded to clean up her mess. I started to laugh as this is something the boys would never do but then I knew what to show. Have you ever seem them?

Last summer I was pregnant and having a hard time sweeping the floor (which is never-ending with all the food and whatnot that gets dropped at each meal) and bending down with the dustpan. The children could do an adequate job sweeping but the broom was difficult to maneuver when trying to get everything picked up. My husband began looking for a broom to help out. We began with some Dirt Devil thing which did not work at all. He then found the Swivel Sweeper and it works wonderfully! Each of the children can operate this lightweight broom and it just sucks up the junk as you pass over it. It works on carpets as well as hard floors. It is battery operated and is rechargeable. Empty out the pan when you are finished and that is all there is to it. Children will fight over who gets to sweep when they use the Swivel Sweeper. Okay, that sounds like a commercial - but it really works well, as long as I remember to assign someone the job.

Stop by CanadaGirl's blog for more interesting Show & Tells.

What a wonderful precious picture. Wait till they get older. They can do all sorts of wonderful chores. My children are a blessing to our family with the way they help. Thanks for sharing!

I just love they way little girls want to grow up to be just like their mommies! (now if only they would remember that when they are teens)

Because of Jesus, bobbie

Missy Blue looks like such a big girl!

If our little gal hears anyone else use the dustbuster she immediately comes running and insists that it is HER job. That swivel sweeper looks like a winner.
