Mommy's Ransom Box
FABULOUS idea from Just Another Day In Paradise! Over the summer the kids have gotten seriously lax about leaving their stuff EVERYWHERE. I cannot tell you how many times I have said "If you don't pick that up and put it away where it belongs it's going to belong to me." HERE is an actual system I can put in place to back up that threat and really follow-thru.
When your kiddos leave something out for the upteenth time, you hold it for ransom, and they have to do a chore to earn it back. TOTALLY love that idea! I usually just keep the item for a day and then hand it back over. I've been missing out on some free labor! Head HERE to download the "UH OH" label. She's also got a great idea on there for a Punchable Chore Card that I may put into action.
