Turning Chores Into an Awesome Game!

IMG_0653Molly and Josefina are napping peacefully…

IMG_0654The mini dolls are chatting quietly…

IMG_0657Ellie is cuddling with all the pets…

IMG_0659Chloe and Jasmine are getting a snack…

But where are Emelie and Cécile?

IMG_0660“You worthless weed! Fold these clothes NOW!” Cécile was screeching at Emelie.

“Yes ma’am!”

IMG_0661Cécile shoved a pile of clothes into Emelie’s arms.

IMG_0663“If those clothes aren’t picture perfectly-folded by the time I say ‘done’, you’re in BIG trouble, missy!”

IMG_0662“Yes ma’am!” Emelie fearfully cried.

IMG_0665“What on earth are you waiting for? GET STARTED!!!”

IMG_0666Cécile’s last scream awakened Molly. She peeked one eye open.

IMG_0667Sitting up, she asked, “What’s going on?”

IMG_0668“NOBODY yells at my BFF like that.” Molly wrapped her arm around Emelie protectively.

IMG_0669“Emelie and I are playing a game,” CéCé explained. “We are maids in a rich girl’s mansion. I’m the head maid who’s really grumpy, and Emelie is an indentured servant from England.”

IMG_0670“Oh, so it’s like a game?”

“Yes! Want to join?” Emelie and Cécile chorused.

“Nah, I’m tired, but that is so cool how you turned chores into a game! I like the story line too…oh, hold on! Chloe absolutely must be here – she’d love to write a story about it, stay right there!” Molly ran to find Chloe.

IMG_0671When Molly returned with Chloe, Chloe instantly started a audio recording on my iPod touch I let my dolls use. “I can’t write as fast as y’all play, so I’m recording it on here so I can replay it and write it later,” she explained.

IMG_0672And the game resumed!

Emelie started folding the clothes hurriedly.

IMG_0673Almost done…

IMG_0674“I am done, ma’am!”

IMG_0675Josefina awoke and wanted to be part of the game, too, so she played the rich girl. “YOU WORTHLESS SLAVE!!!” She cried. “HOW DARE YOU SIT IN MY PRESENCE?!!!”

“Indentured servant,” Emelie corrected quietly. “HOW DARE YOU TALK BACK TO ME?!!!! YOU SHALL BE DEARLY PUNISHED!!!”

IMG_0676So a pink ribbon became a terrible horsewhip.




*dramatic English-accent-infused screams*

IMG_0679Throughout the game, the whole entire doll room was cleaned. The drawer was organized,

IMG_0680The beds were made and mini dolls were positioned nicely,

IMG_0681And all the shoes were paired neatly together!

IMG_0682The game was over just as my iPod touch was about to run out of space! In the end, Emelie got adopted by the rich girl’s mom and they became best friends and sisters.

“This will make an AWESOME book!” Chloe gushed. “I’m going to go write it right now!”

IMG_0684The girls were tired from all the cleaning, acting, and playing, so they flopped on the neatly-made beds!

IMG_0685When Jasmine returned, she asked, “What’s going on?! I could hear screams all the way from the kitchen!”

When Molly told her, Jasmine cried,

IMG_0686WWWHHHAAAAAAAAAAAT!!! Why didn’t y’all call me? I would’ve been PERFECT as the rich girl!”

How do you clean your doll room? Do you make your dolls do it?
Hehehe. 😛

    I loved it! Yeah, the bottom of my closet is used for my goalie equipment and doll stuff, so when I’m done playing with my dolls I’ll just throw all of their stuff on the floor and say, “Here. Clean it up. I’ll be back in an hour.” and I’ll read for an hour, then see how much my doll’s got done and I yell at them! XD XD XD All they do when I’m not around are flips and singing “What Does The Fox Say?”.
    I’m lazy and unorganized. Thank you for listening (or seeing) this.. thing.

    That’s so cute! LOL!:D
    I’ve done something somewhat similar with my friend once. We had to pick up ply wood to put in a burn pile, and we would time ourselves each time!:D It turned out pretty fun!
    And actually, when my doll room is actually “set up”, the dolls are usually yelling at me to stop making messes with doll clothes, cardboard boxes(you can’t ever have enough;D), and thier accessories!:D LOL!
    Great job, Madi!:D

    That was SO cute!! So many times I have done things like this! I’ve done games that I’m the oldest sister and our parents have been away for a long time, so we’ve made the “house” a big mess and then they call unexpectedly and say they will be home that night, so we have to hurry and clean the “house”! LOL! Other times I’d be a maid cleaning an “attic” and my boss or whatever was super mean 😛
    Usually I’d get more playing than cleaning done LOLOL! XD
    I really liked this story though! Such a great idea! 😀

    Haha! Love it! Me and my sister will have to use this for ourselves! BTW, how did you get Molly’s eye to open when she was laying down?

      Thanks! 😀
      Well, same way I get it to close when she’s standing up, except it’s MUCH harder. That’s the first time I’ve ever done it. I tuck a little of her eyelash up into her eye, instead of down, like I’d do if I was closing it down.

        Ohhhhh, so that’s why your dolls have a section in their eyelashes when you take pictures of them standing up and closing their eyes!

    I don’t really have a technique for cleaning my room and I don’t make my doll Julie do it. I would make her clean her room if she had one, but there’s really nowhere to put a doll room in my room. The closet isn’t really working that well. My sister’s and my dresses get in the way (we share a room). By the way, how am I supposed to add links to photos?

      Do you have a desk in your room? That’s where my dolls lived sometimes before we moved – under my desk.
      I’m not sure how to do it on here, but I’ve done it on another site (AGHomeschool.boardhost.com). It has an option where you can click on the photo and add a link to it.

    Yes, I do and my sister and I never use it, but our mom wants us to start using it more often. Plus, it’s pretty small under there. Thanks for the advice, though.

    Cute story! I WISH my dolls could clean my room, but it seems that they just mess it up more than cleaning it!;D

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
