Maybe battery operated toys aren't so bad...

Instead of rewarding the kids with money or toys for doing chores, I started rewarding them with batteries for all their dead toys lol. It's almost like Christmas when their toys start working again. And the tooth fairy left Tristan $5 so he bought some of his own batteries. He was such a nice big brother and shared some with Adelyn so they can get some of their trains working again. Now I have a little peace and quiet while they are playing with their old newly working toys!


Do you reward your lo's for doing chores?
Does your lo's have a lot of battery operated toys? Or do you avoid toys with batteris?

That is a brilliant idea!! Bran bought bean a recharger and batteries for Christmas and we can't find the batteries. Lol the recharger is on the rest and his toys are starting to die.

They have rechargeable ones for their Leapsters because those ALWAYS die, but those batteries are to expensive to get for all the toys they have. And I haven't seen their leapsters in a while, its kinda quiet without them lol

Hahaha I didn't think of an adult convo when I read it.

Beans mobigo batteries are dead and I can't find the wall plug. So it has been quiet. He has been playing with the wall tracks a lot and I am still afraid of getting hit in the head.

 That is a really good idea!  We are always out of batteries.  Right now they get stars for the chores they do and after a certain number of stars they get a new book.

Joshua just got some wall tracks for his birthday. We haven't had a chance to set them up though.
