Reward charts are super huge in my house. My little guy loves receiving a sticker for doing those little things like, getting dressed by himself, listening to mummy and daddy, sharing, etc. I find it makes for an easy escape from the house in the morning to when I say “It’s time to get dressed and then we can put a sticker on your chart!”
Check out my stylish, new reward charts in the shop, you can instantly download and personalise for your little superhero or fairy.
The superhero version… my guy is a big fan, did I mention you can edit it so it says your child’s name and change the tasks as new ones evolve. You can use it over and over again!
A fairy version for all the beautiful girls – see below for how we use this or add your own stickers over the top.
Head here to purchase in my shop.
Once you purchase you will receive a link to download, then save to your desktop and open to personalise using Acrobat Reader.
TIP: You need the latest version, you can download here for free. http://adobe.com/go/reader
HOW TO ADD YOUR OWN TEXT:
Once you open in Acrobat Reader, click on the blue fields and add your own text.
You can edit all the task fields and update as they change. Why not make up your own fun names for the chart?
The blue fields won’t print, they just highlight the fields you can edit.
Then print on your home printer, I use the page scaling set to none to print onto A4. Your normal paper will do, but card also works. Use whatever works in your printer.
MAC USERS NOTE:
If you are a Mac user these printables only work in Adobe Reader and NOT Mac’s default PDF viewer called Preview.
Double clicking on a PDF file on a Mac will open it it in Preview even if you have Adobe Reader installed, and you won’t be able to edit the file.
Here is how to open in Adobe Reader so you can edit the file:
I printed out mine and inserted it into a Marbig Clearview Insert Clipboard from Officeworks. I added some magnetic strips to the back and hung it on the fridge. The clip holds the pen when not in use.
Using a whiteboard marker, I coloured in all the circles
When a sticker is in order, use a cotton tip, or your finger and reveal the saying below, my guy loves hearing what they all say.
Other ways to use these printables are:
• You could also print out and laminate to make a whiteboard pen friendly chart
• Print and place in a frame with a glass front and use a whiteboard marker as above
• Simply print and use stickers that you have on hand to go on top of the existing circles, sometimes only a sticker will do!
This is working a treat for us at the moment, it is a new thing and my little guy gets to rub off each circle with his finger! Exciting stuff!
Do you think reward charts are priceless, I do…
When we unlock the prize it could be anything from a couple of smarties, to a new book, or more time to play outside etc.
I’d love to hear if you like the themes… You can check out the other versions Dinosaur and Mermaid Reward charts in my shop here
