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 would like a copy , please click on the BUY NOW through PayPal. It is only $1.50 and also includes the chore charts which 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! Thank you!

  1. We just started your system on Monday and its been working great. We had so much fun coming up with the rewards! We've tried so many reward sysems but this one seems to make the kids excited. Thank you so much for sharing Becki. My sanity has hope again.

  2. I tried emailing this to you but it said that the email address is invalid? If you wouldn't mind sending it to me to my email address, that would be great...moonshine_262001@yahoo.com. I just read your Rewards for chores blog, and I have to say that I am needing something to motivate my kids to do their chores. We have been doing a dollar system. Fake $ of course, but when they earn so many stars on their chart, they can cash in their $ for prizes in the 3 of the prize boxes we have. I usually purchase stuff from the $1 section at Target or Michaels or even the $1 store. I just end up with a ton of crap floating around the house. I like that they use their heads and count, but I am needing something fresh and new that they could cash in their $ for. I would love to see what your list has in it.
    Thank you!

  70. Just an FYI to everyone that posted their email address, you didn't need to post it for the WWW to see, you are very likely to get spammed a LOT more now. WHen you enter your comment, there was a space to put your email address. The author has access to this information and would very easily have been able to email you back. Furthermore, I think her email address only needed one of the DOTs to be replaced with a @. Just saying. She probably did this to fool spam bots.

    On another note, I think your website is amazing and I also found it through pinterest. I am pouring over all your tips and tricks and keeping for my own family those I think will work wonders! Thank you for sharing your life with all of us :)
