    Great idea for getting your kids to clean up after themselves. Madsens Memories....: Mom's ransom rubbage...

    Great idea: Mom's Ransome Rubbage...If kids don't pick something up after one warning, this mom confiscates it and puts it in a "ransom box." The only way you can get it back is to draw a task from the envelope attached to the box lid. Her tasks are hilarious!

    No kids yet BUT this is a great idea to keep in mind! Fun idea: If you don't pick something up after one warning, this mom confiscates it and puts it in a "ransom box." The only way you can get it back is to draw a task from the envelope attached to the box lid. Her tasks are hilarious!

It's called the ransom rubbage box. If you leave your stuff out after 1 warning, mom puts it inside this box and you can't get it back until you draw a job from the envelope- and do it! Wish I'd had this idea

I pretty much love everything on this list! :) This would be so much fun to do with my kids someday, or something similar with friends/hubby.

If I (or hubby) ever travel for work, this would be fabulous for the little one: they get to open an envelope everyday we are gone and have an activity prepared for them by the parent that's away or something else special for them to do. Helps them remember Mommy and Daddy will be back soon but also that they love them enough to put this together. Love that!
