Playing music is a good idea. My baby girl loves to dance.

Those are part of being "a good citizen of the republic" & don't get allowance or anything. She helps a bit w/ laundry & tries with vacuuming, sweeping, & mopping (but isn't very effective yet ). She does help with putting garbage & recyclables out every week...we give her $2 in dimes for helping...more because it takes her a looooong time to put the coins in her piggy bank than because we want to pay her she does take the responsibility very seriously, though
They do have a piggy bank... Maybe I could set up some kind of reward system.
Happiness comes from within
