How can I speed up clean up time?

Clean Up Monster

If your kids tend to dawdle at clean up time, here is a handy trick. Use a large sack and draw a mean face on it. If your kids refuse to clean up, pull out the "toy-eating" sack and put stray toys in it. Tell your kids that once the sack has eaten a toy, it doesn't come back out for 2 days. This should help speed up the cleaning process, since your kids will not want their toys to be eaten.
