Rewards for Chores....

UPDATE!!!!
UPDATE!!!!
As of February 1, 2013
I have a new blog especially created for these chore charts, click on the button below!
They are new and updated and pretty awesome!
iheartchorecharts



I have been asked by many to show what I do to motivate 
and reward my kiddos when it comes to chores 
(or really anything I feel needs to be rewarded)
Honestly, I have tried dozens of reward systems and some seem to stick more than others.
This is our most current one and seems to be working!
They get points for completing chores, helping each other out, helping mom out, 
going the extra mile, etc.


Once a week we have a cash in day where they can buy certain items I have on little sheets in 
these drawers...

 
I have so many rewards, some of them include:
mom makes your bed for a week, $5.00 for a book, game night, favorite candy and soda, favorite box of cereal, 1 extra hour of screen time, a visit to a yogurt shop, your favorite ice cream, the front seat in our car for a week, one itunes app, etc.

I think motivating and rewarding kids for things is a lifelong task that works for some and not so much for others. My 14 year old is more motivated by me saying, get it done or no friend time- it seems to be different for each kid and with our 6 it takes some serious thinking!

Good luck!

If you want a copy of the rewards I have made, please click on the BUY NOW through PayPal. It is only $1.50, includes the chore charts as well and will make all of the requests I have had for these worth the time it takes to send them out. Just make sure to include your email! I send these asap via email so if you do not get them within two business days PLEASE send me an email at rebeccamadsen@comcast.net! THANK YOU!

Ooh ooh! Pick me! I would LOVE a copy of the list! In the process right now of trying to find something that works. Now, the only other question is, do you have a way of getting your kids to get along? Mine are constantly fighting and it drives my husband and I NUTS!

Would love your reward list!! Motivation is so tough sometimes!! Love the chore cards...honestly (you might think me weird, creepy, cyber-stalker, I'm really not, I promise!) had just written/typed out a list of room-by-room instructions, but hadn't thought of putting them on individual cards! You're brilliant!!

Breeze said...

I'd love to have a list of your rewards too. We use myjobchart.com but it has a place to custom make rewards and I think things like "a week riding in the front seat" would be a real winner in my household. I'd never thought of a reward like that! Brilliant! :) wendysahm at g mail dot com

Hello-

I also came across your post through Pinterest. I would love a copy of your reward system ideas. I am constantly looking for ideas that might help motivate my kids to get their responsibilities completed and in a timely manner. I am beginning to think that those two things are non-existent in the word of kids. ;) It is nice to find that other moms out there are working on the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog. I have 4 children plus a teenage foster daughter and I am learning day by day of how to be more organized cause if not life is stressful! I just started doing chore charts. before we each just took an area and worked together but I have some schedule changes so I need to make some changes of how we do things. I am going to use your rumage box!!! Also your cleaning cards!! If you could send me the points rewards that would be awesome! Give me some help of what to do! I "used" to be a fun person and I want my kids to see that instead of me stressing over the house being clean or where an item is placed. Ok thank you so much!!

Becki,
You are so creative! Love all your chore ideas. I think I might try the ice melting or the twister mat one on Saturday with my kids. I would LOVE a copy of your rewards that you use--mostly because you are just so darn creative! In another post, I also asked for the photoshop version of your chore checklists, if you don't mind. Thanks! sarabrewstersimpson@yahoo.com

Hi
I just found you through Pintrest I would love to get your reward and Chore Cards. I have three kids 18, 12, and 8 I feel like I'm coming apart at the seams some days. I'm in the process of making a Mommy binder so I can be more on top of things. I think making my binder while the kids were in school would have been easier but I'm up for the challenge.

Sincerely,

PS. JPG would be great.
