Help Your Child Succeed With A Clean Room Checklist

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?" Can I PLEASE go out side NOW??" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)

A sign I made and laminated for our front door letting the neighbor kids know when my kids are available to play. Minimizes distractions and interruptions during family time, chores, homework & meal times. Flip it over and it says "Yes We Can Play!"

Chore Sticks!As soon as the kiddos get home from school, they grab their jar & get to work on their chores. {Their “chores” also include things like eating a snack, homework, reading along with the usual chores like cleaning your room, putting your clothes away, etc…} Have them complete all their chores before dinner. It makes evenings a lot less stressful, & more family time.
