The first two weeks of school have come and gone. How quickly time has flown by amazes me. With school comes many things. Homework, sports, PTO meetings, teacher conferences and fundraising.
Keeping all activities in mind, I have found one thing that helps keep my kids motivated. Both in school and at home with homework and keeping their room clean. That one thing being a reward chart. I’ve made their reward chart very detailed and tried to make it where both of them have many opportunities to get rewarded for their good behavior.
With the reward chart working so well, I have also started a new chart for Box Tops. A Chart where we can not only reward the children but help them reward their school as well.
Every time I take the boys to the store they ask me for a toy. Today I decided to give the reward chart a try. Being that school started I wanted to give them a little encouragement to do well in school and keep all their home chores done… Have any of you ever done this and did it work for you??

Being that we shop at HEB for most of our groceries, it has made it easy to collect Box Tops from tons of different products we are already using.
All I have to do is to simply look for the Box Tops label on any General Mills products while at HEB and my childrens school can receive $.10 for every box top we clip and send back to the school. How cool is that?
My kids have loved shopping with me, and we now make it a fun game to see who can find the most products with Box Tops labels. Making this fun for the kids is a great way to teach them to give back. I feel it’s important to do the little things like this while the kids are young.
