We had a bout of illness in the house, so I needed to get all the door knobs and cabinet handles wiped down. Being incredibly lazy, I decided this was a perfect job for the kids. I handed each of them an antibacterial wipe and told them:
“We’ve been invaded by really tiny monsters! They are hiding out on the door knobs and cabinet handles all over the house – some might even be on toilet handles and things like that. I need your help to hunt them all down and kill them with these magic cloths.”
15 minutes later they reported a complete rout and slaughter of all door handle monsters and their allies. Long live the alliance!
