(These are my daughters' reward/magnet chore charts in our kitchen. Their backpacks hang on those flower hooks after school. My youngest painted the stop-light at preschool so I tacked it up there too!)
So my girls are doing chores around the house and earning magnets for each chore. Four chores = One 1/2 hour TV show. Yesterday they folded laundry AND put it away in their drawers just so they could watch one show. (I'm easy - I gave one magnet for folding, one for putting away = 4 magnets pooled together for one show!)
The TV magnets go in the white section of the magnet board. Above are their everyday chores (a little lacking in magnets right now) like setting the table, making your bed, feeding the dog, loading the dishwasher, staying in your bed all night, etc. :)
So I am thinking I want my own magnet chart.
Like when I finish a big sewing order, can I get one magnet as a reward too?
I already know how I will "spend" my magnets. I'm thinking kid-free trips to Hobby Lobby or HomeGoods just to sip a Starbucks and walk the aisles in total silence. Ahhhhh.....
Do you give yourself "magnets"?
Perhaps as working moms and moms who work from home, we need to give ourselves our own magnets. We do TONS of tasks and chores each day. This could be good modeling for your kids too. They will say, "Look how many magnets MOM has on her chart!"
Also a very good way for our husbands to see all that we do in one day.
What do you think? How would you spend your magnets? TV time? Manicure? Go create your own magnet chart today! :)
