Make Chore Day Fair and Fun

Our three kids have their favorite and least favorite chores on "major cleaning day", but it's not always fair to let them choose. I write down each chore on paper, drop them into a basket, and each person draws three or four chores, as needed. Of course, some require a grown-up, so sometimes I leave those out of the basket, but sometimes I write someting like: "downstairs bathroom: you must trade this to Mom"  We allow the kids to trade but only through an adult mediator, to prevent the oldest from taking advantage. Then, everyone knows the distribution of labor was fair, and if they don't like it, they might have better luck next time. Chores go quicker and with less fussing.
