Love this!!!!! Clutter Busting Game using ping pong balls. Each person chooses a ball, completes the task, then chooses another one. After 30 minutes, whoever has the most balls gets a prize -- like a no-chores day, or gets to pick a movie. Such a great idea!

I love the idea of random rewards of things they can do rather than "things" for rewards

The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.

This Week Wall Calendar

Prayer Pail- at mealtime, everyone picks a stick (a person, place, etc..) to pray for.

Yarn and tape a hallway for a "laser obstacle course". That will keep 'em busy for a while.

We love the idea of tents. In tents, you share stories, passions, ideas, games, and memories. Whether it's in your backyard or living room, tents are the perfect place to snuggle up and become closer to your family.

job chore jar

To help me sort out before we furnish second home. I do this in every room as I go through the house.

Didn't know you could iron fabric onto the wall!? Just as easy as vinyl and peels right off!
