A friend of mine posted on FB how her kids were loving a new method of doing chores. So of course I had to ask......
It's basically a bowl or jar with folded up chores that they pick randomly. So far.....it has been 95% awesome. We are working out the kinks as we go! It has chores like sweep the floor, wipe down the table, pick a window and wash it, put laundry away, mop, and some special ones to like wrestle dad, 5 minute break, sing a song....etc... They get a star bursts for each chore they do. (not for the fun or silly ones though) I put some harder ones in there today. Taylor had to sweep and mop, and Nat had to clorox wipe each toilet. For those I made them worth 2 starburst!
Graden's slips are green and at his level. I am lucky to get him to do anything. So he has to vacuum, put toys away, etc... He does not like starbursts either so he get's another treat!
The road bumps we have hit are if one get's done faster than another they get more slips, therefore more starbursts. DRAMA. So tomorrow I am going to give the girls their own color. I hope that helps. Nat also got the two fun ones today as well, and that did not go over well! :(
