When our house gets "out of control" with things out of place, my 8 year old, my 6 year old and myself, go into "Teamwork" mode! We start in the family room and work together to pick up and straighten as quickly as we can! It becomes somewhat of a game and teaches the kids to work together and help each other, rather than argue about whose mess it is. Once we finish in the family room, we move onto another room in the house, inclucing both of their bedrooms, until we are done! It really has become more fun to pick up the house and much less stressful and overwhelming for all of us! And, it's amazing how much faster the mess gets put away! :)
