    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!

      I am in LOVE with this idea! Kids leave stuff laying around - mom puts item in Ransom Rubbage box - kid has to draw out a task and do it to get item back. Brilliant!
