Tell the kids you want to play a game and the rules are the one who can be quiet the longest wins!!!!
It works with my two kids girl 6 boy 2.5
i got three boys , 12,10 , and 4 today i brought home a cord of firewood ! yeah i could have opened the gate and dumped it in the back yard but it was "frozen" so i dumped it out front and had them haul it to the back of the house and stack it on the deck ! i wont hear a peep from them for a week , they are all afraid i will ask them to do some more
they are all sleepin now , cold air and work / followed by a warm fire and dinner good night!
