I just don't know what to do anymore I feel like my kids are out of control. My daughter is 5 and my son is 3. I have to get up each morning and do a walk through of the house to see what they have done when they should of been sleeping like everyone else. I have found messes like....they broke a dozen eggs all over the carpet in the closet, water all over the bathroom/kitchen floor on several occasions, putting half roll of toilet paper in the toilet and clogging it several times, getting condiments and smearing them all over the kitchen floor, spilled pop in several places, my son whips it out and pees all over floors and furniture. They also play with computers, ipads, cell phones even after being told not to several times, they will go as far as plugging stuff in to try to get it on to play with it. Just last night after we put them to bed my husband and I went in our room to watch a movie. I came out afterwards to let the dog out and lock up my vehicle and I couldn't find my keys so I looked around and I found the KFC bucket of chicken from supper earlier, empty. So I thought ok where did 5 huge pieces of chicken go(we put the rest in the fridge), so I looked around and found a mini Lightning McQueen backpack with all the chicken in it and threw it all away and then I found my keys underneath all that.
I have tried time out, corner, throwing toys away, putting all toys up, no TV, I hate to spank but I have even tried that. I've tried any kind of baby proofing thing too. I've tried fridge latches, door knob covers, baby gates you name it I've tried it.
I need help I am at a loss on what to do. I am tired of cleaning up the messes (I cant get them to help, when I try they scream at me and throw things at me or hit me)
What can I do??????

How about locks (like a hook & eye lock) on the outsideof their doors so they can't get out of their rooms? If gates & other safety measures aren't working, you may need to do this. It's not just messes I'd be worried about, but their safety. If they have access to your car keys, & have no respect from electrical things, that is a recipe for disaster. Next, call in Super Nanny, b/c they sound like little hellions that need to be totally retrained. My kids were a handful when they were little, but never to that extreme. If you don't want to make that call, then instead of mommy, it's time for a drill sergeant.
