My kids are 5 4 6 and 6. They clean their rooms all by themselves. Here is what I do... I made a chart with each day out of the month and on each day I have the first letter of their name on that date. If they cleaned their room that day they get a star. On Friday if anyone has FIVE STARS from cleaning their room the entire week they get to participate in something fun. If we are low on cash we go to the park, or make crafts at home...or if we have cash I will buy them a buck toy, or take them to get an ice cream. If any one has a star missing out of the week they don't get to participate. It sounds sad that one child gets to watch the others have fun, but I bet that only happens once...so far it has worked and the kids look forward to Friday. And instead of saying "GO CLEAN YOUR ROOM" I say "Who is going to earn their star today?" So I don't have to get involved at all!
