Give Each Child Their Own Color Dishes

I got tired of getting after my 4 kids when they wouldn't pick up after themselves in the kitchen, so found a company that sold unbreakable dishes. I bought each child their own set (a Mug, a small Plate and a Bowl) They all matched, but in 4 different colors. Each child had their very OWN color! They were responsible for rinsing their own dishes each time they used them, then putting them away. The cool thing was, you could tell at a glance (by the color) who had not cleaned up after themselves. No more blaming it on another child!

Give Each Child Their Own Color Dishes

Years ago, I babysat for a woman who had 4 girls. She used the color coding throughout the entire house. Each girl had her own color. From the kitchen dishes, to their toothbrushes/ cups, and blankets. I watched them for years, and there was never an argument of "she has my stuff".
