    Madsens Memories....: Mom's ransom rubbage box. Tired of picking up toys after repeated reminders? I am! This mom suggests holding items for ransom - to get an item back, they blindly chose a "chore" from the envelope. This mom has a list of ideas, and a sense of humour! Lucky her!

    Mom's Ransom Rubbage Box- if you dont put your belongings away after 1 warning, it goes in the ransom box and kids have to pick a task from the envelope to complete to get their stuff back. Might modify this idea for my little one.

Stop picking up your kids stuff over and over and make a ransom rubbage box. If they leave their belongings out after one warning, mom takes it and puts it inside this box and you can't get it back until you draw a job from the envelope and do it! Awesome idea for when my kiddies get a little older. :)

Toys that are not picked up go in the ransom box and they have to pick a chore to complete to earn it back! A great lesson in personal responsibility.
