This is brilliant: The House Game - making cleaning the house fun for the kids. Everyone works. And the house gets clean! We've also made the chores into a giant die that we roll. Turn on the music and clean!
So going to institute this 'Clean your room' check list for kids! Laminate and use a dry erase marker. =) No more checking and rechecking - "Is my room clean yet, Mom?" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)
