What outdoor chores do your children help out with on the weekends?

The kids love to help Daddy wash the car - and pretty much do anything with the hose!! LOL

They also love working in the yard and are very good at weeding, so they help out whenever they can with the veggie and flower gardens.

My DD loves to help with the yardwork and washing the cars. And now she's added bringing in the garbage can as *her* chore too, LOL.

Watering flowers is probably the biggest one. Sometimes they'll pull weeds, but usually it's easier for me to pull them (so I can get the root) or I just spray stuff that I don't want them to get near.

DS, especially, likes to "help" DH with the yardwork. Although, it's more like him pushing his own lawnmower and using his own weedwacker. LOL!!

If only they had so much enthusiasm for helping out with the chores when they get older.

Both of my girls have their own small watering cans. When we are not rushing they "help" water all the flowers, new trees, and bushes in our yard. This "help" really slows me down, but they enjoy it so much.
