For a long time I was looking for a rewarding chart that pleased me. We use a something that I have printed from the internet, but in this case I was looking for something more specific, which is for one reason only. The reason was that we wanted our little one to eat all his food. So, our goal was very important and very specific, I wanted something that had only one goal, not to distract our little one with other goals, eg. to pick up his toys, to wash his hands, etc. I just wanted to see and try, but without the other reward chart, we pulled him out for a while.
I couldn’t find anything that pleased me, until I thought about making one of our own, a handmade one that he could even make and even decorate it himself. So it was a good idea to be involved in the creation process.
The materials we used were:
Pair of scissors
Markers in different colors
Color card paper
Cardboard piece (maybe cardboard)
Materials for decoration (eg buttons, eye beads, decorative stones, etc.)
Of course you can use anything you like.
Take your kid next to you and let’s get started… Cut a strip from a carton if we can’t find another thick cardboard. Glue the top of the color card paper to the appropriate dimension and let it dry for a while. Cut an A4 paper and glue it onto the color card paper. We create straight colored zigzag with markers. The child can now glue the decorations and customize the reward board as he or she wishes. The reward chart is ready!!!
Every time we reach the goal we give our little creature a sticker!!! Their joy can’t be described and you will see it on their faces because besides being able to win another sticker, they are focused on the specific goal and, at the same time, the chart reminds them that it is entirely their own creation!!! Their achievement!!!
Congratulations on our little friends!!!
