As a parent, there are things we have to do for the kids.  I try to have them be fun.  

For example when giving them vitamins, I like to have them march in a "Vitamin Circle" while they get them.

Recently, we had some fun with humidifiers this winter.  I let them pick their own "kid" ones.  We went with these:

And then after I fill it up, I would walk in the hallway and say in a silly voice "Hippo Delivery" or "Owl Delivery".

When I went in their room, I'd ask where they wanted it (the answer was always on the metal folding chair).  

Then I'd have them sign for it, repeatedly (with their fingers on my hand).  Then they made it even more fun by signing on my back.

The mundane can be magical.
