Saturday Work

Keeping a house clean is a big job.  Having everyone help with extra Saturday chores helps me stay on top of things and teaches them to work.  I have typed up list of what I expect everyone to do on Saturday morning.  I keep it in my binder and pull it out on Saturday morning and put it on the fridge.  It is in a plastic sheet protector so that they can use a dry erase marker to check off chores that they have completed.  After everyone is done I take the chart down and put it away until the next week.  

If we know that Saturday is going to be a busy day I sometimes offer an incentive (extra screen time or fun activity) if they get their chores done on Friday.
