    Kids stuff that are not picked up go in the ransom box and they have to pick a chore to complete to earn it back!!.....I'm going to need to remember this someday!!

    What a great idea!! Kids have to do a "ransom chore" to earn toys back they didn't put away!

Good trick to get your kids to help out more

I have no use for this at all but I think it's the most adorable thing! I want to borrow a small boy just to dress him up. Wow, that sounds wrong.

In this home...

I love this idea! The kids determine their own allowance. The harder they choose to work, the more $ they EARN!

Go marshmallow picking- what a fun idea! Maybe right before roasting smore's

How one mom got her child to pick up his toys without nagging. Brilliant!!

super cute chore jar. kids feel like they have some choice in the matter :)...i did a variation of this. i bought colored large craft sticks and color coded them by length of chore (blue are 5 min chores, orange are 15 min chores, etc...). i wrote the chores on the sticks with a sharpie. so far so good. my 9 year old lives for the "relax no chore today" stick:)

Chore "Rewards" Cards...do a chore, get a punch. Get 12 punches, get a surprise. Very cool incentive idea for home!

Choices! I can totally see using this at school. When students need a break or time away, make a choice about what they want to do! Give them the power to choose!

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!

great idea! no more picking up your childs cup and rinsing it every 5 minutes
