I love it when I find something for the girls that I remember fondly from my childhood, so I was particularly pleased recently when I found swap cards at my local newsagent.
|The Seasons set|
Each girl has a card that introduces them and tells you their favourite colour, pet, school subject, sport, hobby, food and the like so you get to 'know' them.
|Some are glitter cards, which are favourites.|
|Very happy not to have them underfoot anymore!|
These have proven in our house to be the ultimate reward, something I much prefer to use than food or money.
If the task completed needs a small reward a single card or two will do the trick rather than a pack of six.
They don't get them every time they do something as we believe there are some things you should just do as part of being in a family.
They encourage discussion, compromise and negotiation when swapping in in order, and now they understand the concept of swapping and have stopped simply giving them away, although that was quite nice too.
|The full set of friend cards with each girl's likes and dislikes.|
I love these cards because they show regular girls doing regular things such as sport, school, hobbies and having fun together.
What do you use to reward or encourage certain behaviour in your children??
PS - I have no affiliation with Forever Clover, nor was I given anything for free for doing this post - I just really like this product.
