You may have seen this floating around. I think I spotted it on Facebook, but I am sure it is on Pinterest as well.
Here is my version.
The poem came from Just Another Day in Paradise.
How it works. If I come across a toy that is just laying around, I pick it up and put it in the bin. At anytime they want it they must randomly pick a chore to earn it back. We have them go through it every weekend to keep it clear. If they don't earn it back it goes to the Goodwill.
Here are a sample of the chores I wrote up..
Scrub all 3 toilets, pull weeds or outside work, parents Choice, wipe down base cabinets, wipe down base boards. I tried to think of all those jobs that I rarely get to that need to get done. But you can choose whatever works for you.
So far it is working great. Now I need to conquer the attitude we are facing at dinner. Any suggestions?
