Anyone who says that the terrible twos are the hardest is dead wrong! I would argue that 3 is the magic age of fun! And by fun I mean tantrums and whining and hitting and teasing little brothers and all kinds of other “fun” stuff! Yes, I have a 3 year old, and we have all kinds of “fun” around here! So, I decided I needed to take back control! I am the mom after all! I knew this was the age that you can start introducing charts and rewards and stuff, so I set out on the web to find the chart that would work for us…and nothin! After a good hour or so of searching the outer regions of cyber space, I decided I could have made up my own in that amount of time! So I did! And I thought I would share!
So, this one is easy and perfect for my crazy 3 year old! All he has to do is earn 9 superhero magnets and fill up the boxes. Once it’s full, he gets a prize! But it works the other way too, if he isn’t being super I get to take the magnets away.
So I printed the chart out as an 8x10 picture (from Wal-Mart) and stuck it to a yellow piece of cardstock and then slid it in a page protector. I added magnets to the back so it could stick to my fridge. For the magnets, I used these guys…
…and printed them as a 4x6 picture (from Wal-Mart). Then I used some large glass beads/rocks from the dollar store and cut out each little superhero and modge podged them to the back of the glass bead. Add a magnet to the back and voila! Easy peasy, make-my-life-easier behavior chart!
Cammie wants to make a princess one for her little princess…I bet she’ll share too! (No pressure Cams!)
Meanwhile though, I may have a template to share…ok, I do! If you want to do a superhero behavior chart, download the PSD (photoshop) file HERE. You’ll want to add your own little kiddo’s face and name, and maybe even change the rules a little. It’s up to you! Then go HERE to download the superheroes and make some magnets! Remember, the chart prints as 8x10 and the superheroes for the magnets as 4x6. Good luck with those crazy kiddos! So far, this is working great! I hope it does for you too!
