Reward System

This is a reward system that we started with the kiddos sometime ago. Each day they start out with 5 coins (pennies) in their bags. Big boy gets his in the Toy Story brown bag and Little girl gets hers in the Princess bag. When they get in trouble they loose a coin. At the end of the day they get their bags and whatever coins are left go into their piggy banks.

At the end of the week they get to go to the "Good girl/Good boy store" which is in our living room. We buy little cheap toys throughout the week and they are able to purchase them with the coins they earned throughout the week. They also can purchase activites such as; pick out the family movie, help mommie pick out the meal for the night, go fishing with daddie alone, go to movies, etc.

They also can earn 'Bonus coins.' We have a lot of people in and out of the house throughout the week and most of these need to be adult meetings only, so if they play good in their room then they can earn an extra coin. They also earn them when they are playing exceptionally well together.

Do you gals have any reward systems that have worked with your kids? Feel free to give any ideas in the comments!

  1. Great idea Marcie! I'm trying to find something that works well for us too!

  2. So happy to see you at A Crafty Soiree! This sounds a lot like a reinforcement system I had in place when I taught. It worked wonders. It's great when you find the motivation that works for your kids. Thanks for sharing and I hope to see you next time too:)

  4. I love this idea! I've tried several different systems for my kiddos, but I like the simplicity of this one. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love that they have coins to start with. It gives them something tangible they can see and want to hold on to.
