chore jar/sticks- we do this but don't color the sticks... and the chores are fairly simple. But with 4 kids... we get 4 chores finished in 5-15 minutes compared to me doing it myself and taking an hr or so... GREAT IDEA! And my kids don't complain cuz everyone draws a stick and does a chore! LOVE IT!!
This is a really good idea!!! You do not get paid for chores because it's an expected part of being a family. Allowance is teaching children how to manage money. The chore list doesn't get money but the commission chart does!
