Les Mess Organizing Card Game
Well, the Les Mess Organizing Card Game is just the trick to help accomplish these oftentimes difficult tasks.
According to their website, “LES MESS, a fun interactive card game that teaches children how to clean up after themselves and manage their possessions.”
Les Mess recently sent me a deck of these cards to try out and my kids have had quite a bit of fun with these.
The game is set up so that your child draws a card and then does the task in the allotted time. There are also “Bonus” cards that allow the child a free day or some other twist. You can then set up the game to offer a prize or reward when the task is completed.
This game seems like a handy way to get your kids involved in tidying up his or her things as well helping out around the house. Ideally they will then become a bit more aware of keeping things organized and develop a habit of picking up more often.
