Tired of fighting with your kids over chores? Check out this simple DIY chore system for kids that works so well, they may even beg you for more things to do! No fancy stuff or DIY-talent required, “Chore Sticks” is easy peasy to set up. Plus get your free printable chart here too!
Simple Chore and Reward System: As children complete chores, they move the chore stick to the ‘done’ jar and place a marble from the ‘Good Deeds Marble’ jar into the ‘Rewards’ jar. Once the ‘Rewards’ jar is full, celebrate your children’s good deeds with a new toy, a special meal, day trip to a favorite spot, or any other favorite activity. Additional marbles can be added for good behavior, good deeds, on any time children make a special effort to be helpful or well-behaved.
Behavior Chart: Begin at "Good Job" every day. The clips are moved up and down based on certain requirements. If a child is on any green space at the end of the day they get 5 pom poms in their jar. When the jar is full the child gets their pre-chosen reward (treat, prize, night out with mom or dad, etc.). LOVE this!
