    Do they have an electronic device (ie phone, ipad, etc)? If so, the choremonster app is amazingly great!

    I would get two slim cork boards with one titled "To do's" & the other "Done." Use different colors for each child....it would stand out as to who is winning & might encourage the other to get on the ball.....you also can get a visual of what is happening......monetary is always helpful....at the end of the week, the one who finishes all of them is rewarded with a money jar that says "Thank You" or a token for something, like a trip to the ice cream shop, etc. A game that might work.

    List out the chores that you expect each child to complete, along with the day(s) of the week it is to be done or morning/evening chore. Attach a reward to the completion of each one versus an allowance. You can also use rewards such as an hour of computer/gaming time, etc.

    We had a schedule for what chore which child was expected to do on each day of the week . If all the chores were not done by the end of the week (on the expected days) privileges were lost and you waited until the next week to get your allowance . There were 4 of us growing up and my mother's house was spotless lol.
