When a mom shares a great idea, I just have to pass it on!
Keeping a home organized with 3 kids is no easy task. A mom I know needed a new way to get her kids involved in helping. She found a great idea one day while watching one of her favorite TV shows: before and after photos!
Emily handed a camera over to her kids to take “before” pictures. Then they were instructed to clean up the room and have a big “reveal” when they were done. There was instant motivation to transform the room. When they were done, to her daughters’ delight, Emily provided the dramatic screaming and teary eyed reaction they hoped for.
This idea won’t work every time…nothing ever does. But if it works for today, it’s good enough for me!
I love hearing creative ideas for motivating kids!
What about you? Do you have a creative idea you can share that’s helped motivate your kids?
