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.
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!
Next time toys get left on the floor collect them in a ransom box. In order to get the toy back the child gets to pick a stick from the chore jar and perform a chore. Getting kids to clean up after themselves with Zink and a giveaway. 4men1lady.com
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:)
