That the kid himself wanted to participate in process, tell it that it already rather adult to clean a bed in the mornings. Do not force the child to make a bed alone, let him perform only work, feasible for it (for example, straightens a cover).

In order that the baby remembered sequence of actions, accompany cleaning of a bed with a suitable rhyme. If you do not want anything to think out, use it:

Morning came, it is time for us to rise!

Before to wash, we will make a bed:

Exactly, we will accurately put a blanket,

Where there lives the toy?

This game will help to accustom the child that all toys have to lie on the places. Begin with cleaning of one toy, then add also others. Gradually the kid will remember an arrangement of objects and will clean them into place.

If he forgets or will refuse to clean some toy in it lodge imperceptibly hide it. Ask a bit later where this toy. The kid will begin to look for it and will not find. Then tell it a small tale...

Once upon a time there was a girl Katya. It had a favourite doll Masha and a bear cub Plush. Somehow time was played by Katya with toys and forgot them to clean on the place. The beauty Masha on a floor lay, the father entered here and incidentally pushed away her a leg. Masha was very small and easy doll therefore imperceptibly departed under a case. The bear cub Plush rolled on a sofa on which mother sat down. She a little bit grumbled a little on Katya for the fact that that scattered toys, and put a bear cub on a shelf. The bear cub began to cry because that it was not his shelf, and he very much wanted on the place. And the doll Masha quietly began to cry on a cold floor under a case.

Katya did not hear unfortunate Plush, the lost Masha. There came morning. The girl woke up and wanted to wish to the favourites of kind morning, but did not find them on that place where they have usually a rest. Now its turn to cry came. Katya cried loudly and bitterly, but could do nothing. Toys were gone. Then mother regretted Katya and found her darlings a doll and a bear cub, but toys took offense at the hostess and did not want to play with it " any more;.
