Camping Inside ~ Tips for getting your kids to keep their room clean

camping indoors

My girls are sweet as can be… but they are little pack rats and their room is GROSS!  They will go to bed with a clean room and by morning it looks like Barbies dream house exploded … with stuff everywhere.   I am glad they are creative and like to play and make projects, but learning to clean up after yourself is a pretty important lesson in life as well.   Having me ask (or even beg) to clean up everyday seems to have no effect on them.   They try but get distracted and I have to tell them again, and again and again.

So I made a chart I told them that IF they could keep their room clean for 7 days they would get to “Camp Inside” for one night.  They could earn another night if they kept it clean another 7 days.  I was not going to remind them, or beg them to clean.  If they wanted the reward they would have to work for it.  I was shocked how well this reward work for 7 days they kept their room nice and tidy.

We let them put up the tent (a good skill to learn) and camp inside.  They LOVED every second of it. I hope it works this well all summer.   tips for getting your kids to clean their room
