One of my customers turned me on to this great tip. Originating from www.housefairy.org, use this tip to keep your kids motivated about cleaning their rooms. Explain that there is a clean room fairy (sister of the tooth fairy) who will come and visit (no one can be sure when) and if their room is clean, she’ll leave a surprise. This is such a great idea and has already worked for me. The fairy may want to purposely visit when the room isn’t clean and leave a note like, “sure hope your room is clean next time so I can leave your surprise!”
