Even the youngest of children can begin to learn and pitch in. My daughter has been helping me fold laundry since she was a toddler. She knows her dress-up clothes need to be hung up. My son knows his LEGOs go in a 5-gallon bucket. Start by giving your kids a small task—like matching socks, putting toys into a toy bin, placing laundry inside the washer or matching silverware when unloading the dishwasher.
