Bed Fairy to motivate kids to make beds...

My lovely children have a hard time making their beds in the morning, they often look like this:
Which drives me crazy.
I have nagged, I have threatened, I have pleaded and they still look like this.
So in my desperation, I have invented the bed fairy.
The kids came home from school and found this note from the bed fairy...

The bed fairy made their beds to show them how it should look if they want her to leave them a prize. Depending if their bed is made or not, the bed fairy will leave one of these cards.
If it is made, you get a surprise- it can be anything from toys, to money, to staying up late!

Is it no surprise that the next morning I found my daughters bed like this...
and my sons....HALLELUJAH!
Let's cross our fingers that this idea lasts!
I sure love walking into my kids rooms and seeing a nice, crisp bed!

If you want to download the cards, just click and save!
