This Weeks's Verse:
 
Whatever you do, do your work for the Lord.
See Colossians 3:23

To share the work and make it more manageable, you might race to pick up toys or move like robots, or sing a song while working.
When you're finished, say, God wants you to do your work like you are working for Him. I think He is pleased with how you worked to clean up.
