My plan to survive Spring Break

#1 chore charts and strict rules of no playing til done. (adding to their chore charts a few spring cleaning jobs to really help me out!)

#2 A list of friends who are NOT out of town for spring break

#3 Mugs - During Christmas Break they each had a cute christmas mug to drink out of, They have been placed next to the sink.

#4 Snack boxes - Their lunch boxes have been filled with their snacks for the day. NO RAIDING THE CUPBOARDS. I get sick of putting boxes of snacks crackers granola bars away and then putting them away, and not to mention sweeping up the crumbs constantly.

#5 A list of activities they can do on their own without my help or little help. New crafts, or easy treats to bake etc. I don not want to hear I'm Bored. Nope not gonna put up with it.

#6 A little one on one date with mom sometime during break for each kid.

#7 A special surprize for no fighting. I've actually allready been doing this one for a week and its been AMAZING. I am all about Bribes/rewards.

#8 Emergency numbers on speed dial. Including Jeff and CPS.

I've found that the virtual chore chart works for me. I use a site called Handipoints chore charts to make printables and it's really been fun so far!
