I don’t know about you…but I love to scratch these little stickers. And not knowing what reward lies underneath makes it that much more fun. So – I thought maybe it could motivate my kids to do their jobs :0) And just because I like you guys so much – I’ve made the cards available for you to print.
Because I have 4 kids – I made 4 styles of cards. 2 girl, 2 boy. I also added a file with the job lines blank – so you can fill in your own jobs in photoshop – or handwrite them in. You can download them HERE
To print the cards:
I used 4×6 Blank Index Cards (which should be pretty cheap in the school supplies sales right now)
Set your printer settings to 4×6 paper size (most have this for photo printing)
Once you’ve printed your cards (I printed off 10 at a time so that I have them on hand, ready to go) you need to write the rewards in the gray circles…make sure to randomize them!!
Add your scratch off stickers.
Once they’ve finished their week’s worth of jobs – they get to scratch off ONE sticker to reveal their prize.
To redeem their prize – they just turn in their card. Easy Peasy.
Here are some of the rewards we wrote in:
Treasure Box (items that your kids LOVE, but don’t cost a fortune. Small lego packs, squinkies, mini-figure packs, etc)
30 Minutes Technology Time (i-pad, xbox, wii, computer, whatever your kids choose or you have available)
$$Extra Buck$$ – They get an extra dollar added to their check book
Free Day – One day free of jobs. This can be used retro-actively…like if they didn’t get their stuff completed one day.
Gimme 5 – Extra $5 in their checkbook (this will not be used very often – ha ha)
Ice Cream Date with Mom & Dad (this can be done in your kitchen after all kids go to bed – or taken out)
Extra Bedtime Story (for the little people)
Late Night (get to stay up late and play a board game or other activity with mom and dad)
What are some prizes your kids would love to have? We’d love to hear & share the ideas around!
I think I might make some of these cards for my chores around the house! Maybe it will motivate me!! Ha Ha.
