Put your kids to work!

Little freeloaders…. I’m kidding! But Delta Faucet Company has the right idea, in the article for their online content portal “Inspired Living”. I was commissioned to create four super-helpful kid characters of varying ages, to show how kids as young as two can be real team players around the house.

Pop-ups give hints on when to start giving kids more responsibility, and how to motivate them (for fun or financial gain, as they get older).

I’m wondering if it’s time to put our 6-yr-old to work – is it too soon to have her learn to mix cocktails? As soon as she can read, I’ll give her Sally Draper’s cocktail cheat sheet, adorably illustrated by Mad Men Illustrated artist Dyna Moe.
