  • Make something that can magnetize on your fridge. Draw a chart and laminate it. For each child have a special magnet, like a skateboard for a boy or a magic wand for a girl. Move their magnet along the chart to a goal as they do good. Or how about a dry erase board? A jar and they fill it with a button everytime they do good? Clothes pins.

    What do they like? Add spots to a lady bug. Add logs to a truck. It is endless.

    This sounds like fun. I might do it. :)

  • When I was little we had a star chart. It had our names and then chores/whatever on a grid and then we got to put stars (stickers) for each activity completed.

  • I have also heard of giving coins at the beginning of the day and taking them for poor behavior.

  • Stickers or magnets and poster board. As for rewards, dollar store toys!

  • Use cardstock paper. I did this with potty training. I made squares to put the stickers in. Once he reached a certain number of stickers, he would get a small prize. Our prize was 1.00 matchbox cars. Then when he filled it all up, he would get one big prize. Hey my son was potty trained in 2 weeks using my rewards charts and we never had a relapse. :)
