we try to teach them to clean up after themselves

If you are peeling corn for your mom in the backyard and
If you and your sibling think it is more fun to throw the husks into the window well than the bag provided...
 
 Well, then, you (with much help from Dad) might be the one that has to pick it up. 
Along with all the other garbage and junk that has accumulated down there over the last 3 years.
 
And, unfortunately for Dad, you might like it so much that you ask to do it over and over again.  
And, unfortunately for Mom, you might like it so much that she will worry where the next corn husks are going to end up.
Once again, poor choices are rewarded in our household.

I don't think that is in the "natural consequence" range of disciplining. And, thanks for the advice. This doing hair thing is new and intimidating.

Clever way to clean up! However, you might just be encouraging them throw things down there again. It does look like fun. I have heard it said that the best way to get kids to work is to make it fun. This is a perfect example of that. Grandma
