How can I motivate my kids to do chores?

Clean Up Bingo

To help motivate kids to do household chores, draw a grid on a piece of paper, like a bingo card, and fill in the squares with various household chores. Give them the center square "FREE". Then, write each chore on a separate slip of paper and put the slips in a jar. At chore time, the kids each pick a slip. After the chore is completed to your satisfaction, they get an "X" on that square. Once your kids get a BINGO, reward them with a treat.
