Spring means it’s time for spring cleaning! Have you tackled that project at your kidmin program yet? If not, use the 4 tips and tricks below to make the process a breeze.

Spring is here! It’s time for a change and for organization. What’s better than a good spring cleaning? Whether it’s dusting the cobwebs from the corners or a complete craft room remodel, we’re here to help. Here are four tips and tricks to give your kidmin program a makeover.

4 Spring Cleaning Tips for Your KidMin Program

1. Lifehack your craft room.

You can find some of the neatest tricks at lifehacker.com. The site features loads of ways to repurpose old items. Even if something is designed for another project, you can always draw inspiration from their ideas.

How about attaching clothespins to a wall for a craft drying area? Or organizing your toys so kids can easily access them? Here’s a space saver: Look to your closet doors for more space. There’s no need for new plastic bags when you can reseal the old ones using an iron. And my favorite lifehacker tip: little tennis ball people who hold small items.

2. Make the most of your space.

Who wouldn’t love some extra space in their children’s ministry? Deb Vos is a master of transforming spaces. Her tips will help you make the most of what you have. Her article features great ways to overcome cramped quarters. She helps you get rid of the old and bulky items in your room, give your furniture function, and turn your room into a space that meets your needs.

3. Clean everything!

While you’re moving furniture around, make sure to clean your rooms. Martha Stewart has a helpful checklist on her website. If volunteers help out, give each team a kit stocked with all the cleaning supplies they need. That way, they can do their job and do it fast.

Play upbeat music to keep everyone energized. And check expiration dates and smoke detectors while you’re at it!
