Prayer Sticks: popsicle stick with picture of family member or friend. Each day have child draw a name and you both pray for that person. Fabulous way to teach importance of prayer for others and not just your own wants!!
great reward system for kids. when they do chores (on time, no whining, no complaining) and do them well, they earn points to "shop" at the "store" points can also be earned for good behavior, sharing, helping.... some ideas for the store: snacks, candy, later bed time, sleepover...etc
