COOLEST CHORE CHART EVER! (I'm not bias or anything)
(The Reward Board)

{ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A BOY…}

So I would be lying if I said I came up with this idea on my own… I didn't. My twin brother and sister (twin-in-law) were actually trying to come up with a way to motivate their son and came up with a game. They drew it out on paper like a game board and he moves up when he is good and does things they are working with him on (cleaning his room, getting dressed, being nice to his brother) - he's 4 - so that kind of stuff. He moves backwards when he is not obeying, throwing a fit, etc. Add in what you wish.

{MY FAMILY & THE REWARD BOARD}

GENIUS! I just loved this idea. I've always wanted a system to reward my girls that is fun for me and fun for them. Until we started doing this I just had them clean up and if they didn't obey - time out. Granted we'd tried reward systems that… well were so unexciting that we completely forgot about… & sure... I showed them appreciation and affirmation when they did a good job, but I hadn't quite incorporated a way for them to fully feel - as a kid - that GOOD BEHAVIOR GETS GOOD RESULTS! :) (which, we all know, in kid lingo is treats and surprises... okay & maybe in my lingo too).

One thing I've noticed is the game board in itself is a reward for them. "Ooooo I get to land on the stripes today!!!" or "Yay polka dots!!!!" So hilarious, but hey if it works it works!!!

In this game board I have put a treat on every few spaces. I realized that waiting to get a reward all the way to the end might be a bit discouraging especially for my just-turned-3 year old. I wanted them to get SOMETHING along the way to encourage them that they are getting there! Your 'something' can be as simple as a chocolate chip, a sticker, getting to stay up an extra 15 minutes, getting to have mommy clean their room…. whatever you want really. I told them I'd tell them as they go what new treat they were aiming for as it comes…. & I'm thinking this next time of making a list of 'treats' they can choose from.

At the end my girls will get a bigger surprise. Ideas? $10 to spend at Target…. a trip to Chucky Cheese…. Going on a family movie date…. Having a couple dollars to shop with at the dollar store…. Treats & end goals will vary with each game we finish.

{REWARD BOARD & YOU}

Anyway there's a peak into OUR lives and what WE do with this "reward board"…. Really the possibilities are endless. Make your own rules, your own treats, and make it your own. Heck, use it for potty training if you want! But hey, here's a way to make chores fun, and what kid doesn't LOVE fun!?

{WHAT YOU ARE BUYING}

• GAME BOARD is an 11 x 17 poster printed on 13pt recycled matte cover that is 50% recycled. It's fairly thick, not a flimsy poster, and GREAT quality.

• You will be sent 10 MAGNET GAME PIECES to keep track of where each child is. Magnets that are not used are to hold the gameboard onto the fridge. If desired, switch the characters out with each finished game.

** tip: if you have less than 4 children playing then what I do is put the extra pieces in different parts of the game "cheering them on". **

(More game pieces are available for purchase upon request)

{WANT ONE OF THESE AND HAVE NO MAGNETIC PLACE TO PUT IT UP?}
I suggest purchasing velcro with adhesive at your local Walmart, Michaels, or Joanns. Cut soft part of velcro into thin strips and attach them onto black lines between each space. Cut plastic part of velcro into 3/4 inch squares and attach onto magnetic game pieces.
