Is the family room cluttered with toys and it's driving you crazy? Grab a kitchen timer. Tell your kids it's time to play "Beat The Clock." Set the timer for 15-20 minutes and race to get as much done as possible before the alarm goes off. Making clean up time a game can really motivate kids. And just think about how much you'll laugh watching one another rush around the room.
Ever played "Beat The Clock?" Did it work?
