clockUsing a timer and a reward to get kids to clean up a mess of toys is one of those simple tool that works. I remember when my kids were little, a babysitter turned a lot of challenging tasks into games. She used a timer, and they loved it. That bicycle tire clock is from Boredpanda.

She came from a big family and noted that it always worked on her brothers and sisters. We also had a chicken alarm clock that looked like the one below. My youngest put that chicken out of its misery. chicken clock
