Confession: I love Supernanny. The girls and I watch marathons on the weekends. Jeremy is not a huge fan of the show, but I like it...it gives me alternatives to spanking and that nanny knows her stuff!
One weekend, I got on their website and just started looking for little chore charts or rewards charts...something fun and cute that would draw attention from the girls.
I found this, printed it off and got busy!
I also printed off the little people that come with it and then grabbed a few pictures of the girls to attach their head. (Silly, but the girls love it!)
I kept it a surprise and made sure it was hidden from them until I was ready. Once I got it all done, I made a huge deal of it to the girls.
I showed it to them and they were so excited!
For the actual rewards, I chose simple, inexpensive things the girls love to do. We do these things often enough as it is, but just letting them choose makes it much more exciting to them. Our rule is once they get to 10, we immediately plan the reward...no waiting for a good time. This adds to the treat of it!
Our rewards are:
- A trip to the library
- A new set of jewelry
- Out to eat for dessert
- Spend the day with mom or dad, alone
- Help cook a whole meal
- Pick the game for game night
- Pick a movie for movie night
- Go to the park
- Invite a friend to stay the night
I hope this can help someone...it definitely has worked for us!
