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 :)

Establish a family tradition where each child starts making his/her own bed every single day at age 5. Never fix their work - they will get better at it, and it quickly becomes a habit.

They're simple.  You and I do them every day - - but this after school checklist will helpfully remind my kids what needs to be done when they walk in the door from a long day at the "office".

Oh my gosh..... GEEEEENIUS!!!!!!! Tired of kids asking for a drink of water every two seconds and pulling new cups out of the cupboard? Why not make cups that stick on the fridge with magnets? They can grab a cup, get their own water, then stick it back in the same spot.
