  • Allow your child to assist with household chores.
  • Give your child a cloth, a dishtowel, or a paper towel.
  • Physically guide your child through the motions of wiping.
  • Model wiping up a spill.
  • Narrate the actions as you wipe up the spill.
  • Put a small amount of water into a spray bottle.
  • Allow your child to spray the water bottle as you clean with other agents such as Windex or Fantastic.
  • Verbally encourage your child to wipe up the water.
  • Proudly watch as your child independently wipes up spills.
