OK so a little back story to why I made these little tokens. The past few weeks my 3 1/2 year old has really been pushing the limits on her behavior. I know what everyone is thinking - she's a toddler and yes I totally agree. So in efforts to contain her behavior I've come up with these tokens. She will have to earn them and if she gets 10 tokens she can get a special prize. Something like maybe going to the park, bubbles, TV, a special treat or a special toy. I know it may not be the best way to parent by "bribing" but I really need my little one to behave. I think it has something to do with school being out.
I will say the idea is something I saw at the preschool used by the special needs teachers. They would have these little flash cards - for the kids who were non verbal and they would give them one for being good and/or even if they were not listening or behaving nicely. At the end of the day they got to pick out a little prize from the treasure box if they had so many good tokens. These kids really like getting the prizes and it seemed to work so I thought I'd give it a try at home for my daughter.
I made these in a rainbow of colors, and also then the star and sad face -- that means she looses a privilege.
I used PKS Happy Lashes and Happy New year faces for these little tokens.
I took it a few steps farther and laminated these because I wanted them to last and also put a magnet on the back.
I've already been asked by a little one if she could have them. I told her they are her reward "Dablums" as in yes Captain Hook reference.
Hope you enjoy and
