Reward ideas for a chore chart needed!
Posted 26 October 2008 - 10:03 PM
What they get is a "buck" for doing chores and other duties, but I need ideas for rewards that doesn't always involve buying a toy.
I have "picking out dinner" and tv time earning, because that's an issue with us, but I'm looking for other ideas. We live in the boonies, so going someplace isn't always optimal.
Can you give me some ideas?

I think we may do the same this year with pjs. She loves pajamas, so I am thinking about cutting a similar pair out of paper (like a paper doll) and then cutting the paper pair into pieces. She can earn a leg or arm, button or pocket, until she earns the whole set, she can't have them!
You could do the same with a board game, letting them earn the men, the cards, the game board, etc.
I have done it with Legos when ds was little. Legos come in little baggies inside the boxes. So, he would earn the baggies!

a warm family home to which we all contribute
If they want money, they can earn it by doing extra chores...those I usually do. Otherwise, there are no external rewards or money for chores and school work.
Oh, this sounds so mean and cold. It's not, really! I just can't imagine paying our dc for doing things they are supposed to do. Where would I draw the line? Pay them for brushing their teeth and showering? Sharpening a pencil?
Perhaps I get the title of "Meanest Mom in the South"!

An electric tooth brush, stickers, markers, water color paints, a little tablet, bubble gum or a small pack of candy, a dollar, sparkly shoe laces, hair stuff, chap stick....
