instead of arbitrarily giving kids an allowance. The kids can pick what they want to do and earn as much money as they choose - Dave Ramsey talks about this...very cool

Chore Magnets - good idea - I would make these $ magnets the extra chores they can do to earn money if they want, but they would still have their normal kid chores.

cute idea for kids chore chart http://www.etsy.com/listing/83249330/set-of-10-custom-chore-magnets-custom

Good idea for kid's chores! Magnets help keep kids on task. Also: it does not have to be money they earn for chore it can be time playing favorite compute game, watching a DVD, after a large number of chores going to a park with a parent or some activity that does not have to cost money. There are for all families!

I love this idea for a kids' chore chart. All chores will be assigned an amount and whatever the kids do, that's the money they will get. Painting a cookie sheet with chalkboard paint and using these "chore magnets" makes for a fun and easy to use chore chart. I love this. And it's easy to do.

Kids chore chart... This is the best kid idea yet !!

Ok. This is a great idea!

Extra chores: kiddos can pick a "work for hire" job to get money. GREAT IDEA! Could put different amounts in envelopes for more difficult jobs

Love the extra chore ideas ... great way for the kids to make some money and great way to get some extra help.

Ok. This is a great idea! Kids chores. Rewards. Maintain the explosive house.

Totally doing this for the kids chores! Want money? Pick a chore or ten. :)

The Uh Oh Bucket - "You left it out, I picked it up. I've got your stuff , you're out of luck! To get it back must do a chore, and again it is yours just like before!"

a list of "busy bag" ideas - - more realistic than me making the busy book? maybe?

a list of "busy bag" ideas - LOVE THIS, esp now that I checked out the blog... all kinds of activities for kids that require only enough materials and instructions to put in a Ziploc, and these are the kinds of things that look like they could keep a child busy - constructively - for quite some time! Giving me all kinds of cool ideas... like if a bunch of Moms wanted to do this, and had one another's addresses or something, and each one came up with ONE idea, got the materials, and sent them to each other? This would be even easier for people in some sort of playgroup...

The day you were born box... Love this.

baby memory box...saw this years ago and meant to make one...little honey would love to open each box and learn something new about when he was brn.Great idea!!!

the day you were born box. When Zach & I were dating, his grandma gave him articles that she saved from the newspaper the day he was born. Since then, I've wanted to put together things for my future kids of things from the day they were born.

The day you were born box. -- I've felt so much less guilty since doing a baby box rather then the baby book! So great for the non-scrapbooker/busy mom.

The day you were born box...even though I haven't touched his baby book, and was terrible at keeping up with my pregnancy journal, I'll pretend that I'm actually going to get around to doing this....it's a cute idea anyway! :)

The day you were born box instead of a baby book, no one ever really fills them out anyway, right? I actually have something like this for connor but it would make a great upgrade or gift or for a future little one

The day you were born box. Love this keepsake idea!
