Chore Bucket

I have been taking a break from the blogging world...not by choice :)
School got out and I have been trying to keep 3 very active boys entertained.
We also just got back from the most amazing trip to MA and Cape Cod...I could so move back there!

I am forever asking...yelling at my boys to pick their things up.  Naturally, I get very frustrated when they don't and my back is starting to hurt from picking them up anyway.
I saw this amazing idea on Pintrest.  I changed it up a little and put my chores on plastic popsicle sticks that I purchased at Michaels.  I didn't want them to be able to see what chore they get to do!  I was involving the boys so they understood that I am serious.  I asked what chores they thought were appropriate.  I received answers like, "Be nice to my brother", "Share my toys", "Take Avery for a walk".  These are all things they should be doing anyway.  So a few chores I chose are things they do not want to do so they will remember to put their things away.  - Pick up Dog Poop - Wipe down Bathroom Sinks - Wipe down Toilets ... I am really hoping these work!
