    Chore and Homework chart! Make with felt and sticky felt letters from the dollar store. Write chore and dollar amount on the clothespin and put in the "to do" then the kids can move them over to the "done" side upon completion. Homework doesn't get a dollar amount! Maybe a reward at the end of the week, when everything is done. Simple and useful!!! I want one for my Hubby - a Honey Do List would be great, just use stickers on the pins instead of writing on them. :)

    Chore charts! I like this idea for when my kids get older.

    Here's a great idea, create a chore board and when the kids want money, they pick out tasks that equal the amount they want to earn!

    reward system based on 'real world' -- kids earn chips for good behaviors and chores, then turn them in for things they want. they also lose chips for behaviors that aren't acceptable. (this is the chart I created for my little nanny-kids)

    Going to make one for home! Behavior Chart: Begin at Good Job every day. The clips are moved up and down based on certain requirements. If a child is on any green space at the end of the day they get 5 pom poms in their jar. When the jar is full the child gets their pre-chosen reward (treat, prize, night out with mom or dad, etc.).

    Chore ideas by age. I'm printing this. I've been working w my kids on their "Life IQ". This will motivate them I think. :)
