I am all about positive reinforcement and rewards at our house—it really helps my kiddos to behave or do things I ask—and it makes me feel good to get them excited about doing good things. I used to teach 1st grade and loved using these kind of incentives. (I even get a little excited when they earn a sticker:)
After Kirsten’s Great Post about incentives, I wanted to try the DIY Treasure Charts.
Next, I got a Treasure Chest looking box. (Similar ones can be found at most craft stores)-You can even decorate a box with your kids, or use a plastic tote. Anything would work.
I then filled the box with some little goodies that my kiddos love. I put fruit snacks and treats that they normally can’t have in the treasure box as well.
