O and I recently made a job jar for her to motivate her to do more jobs around the house. (she has a chore chart, but we both tend to forget to even look at it). The job jar is filled with craft sticks, and we wrote one job on each stick. She chooses 3 sticks after lunch, and she get to choose 2 of the 3 jobs to complete. She's excited about her jobs, and I hope this will help us keep things a little neater in our small, crowded house!
Here are a few of O's jobs...
clean cabinet doors, refrigerator door, stove door, etc (she LOVES this one...she dampens a sponge and cleans everything with it...fun!)
organize art shelf
organize bedroom (this one seems to be impossible lately)
make her bed
vacuum hallway (using small vacuum)
fold dish towels
clean glass doors
