Anyone have suggestions?

I am getting ready to potty train my little boy. I've made our own potty training chart, and each time he does something on it he'll get a sticker (washes hands, goes pee pee in the stool ... etc.) once he gets 10 stickers he gets a reward. I would like to give him small rewards, something affordable and not a food reward. Does anyone have any suggestions? (Thanks for your experiences and help! I'm a first time mom and could use any suggestions you're willing to give!)

  • I do those little cars. My son loves them. I also thought about bubbles, bouncy balls and books.

  • We would either get toys at the dollar store or the dollar bins at like Target. Also, anytime that my DD would get a kids meal and not eat all of her meat, the toy would go in the prize drawer. So, she's also gotten those as rewards for other things.

  • Matchbox cars are less than $1.

    At our walmart there is an $0.88 section in toys that has silly string, big bouncy balls that light up and/or make noise when bounced, plastic zoo animals and dinosaurs, spinning tops, etc.

    I would just take a $20 bill go to walmart or a dollar store and fill a small bucket with cheap goodies. That way not only does he get a reward but he gets to choose himself what his reward is for every ten stickers. Good luck!
