Check out this easy hack for making a rewards box that kids will love!
It’s back-to-school season, and in our house, that means heading to Walmart to stock up on everything our family needs for a new routine. I love to start fresh, with a full cabinet of necessities. It certainly helps in the craziness of fine-tuning a new family schedule.
I also know our teachers appreciate when we grab extras for the classroom. As a former teacher myself, I know every little bit helps! I stock up at Walmart because I know the sale prices will allow me to fill up the cart with supplies for home and school.
This week, we grabbed Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Pack, Kleenex® Trusted Care* 4 Bundle Pack, Scott® Tissue 20 Roll Pack, and Viva® Vantage® 6 Big Rolls. I love seeing those Box Tops on items that we buy all the time. Double Box Tops feels like hitting the jackpot. For back-to-school shopping, you can get double Box Tops with Kleenex Facial Tissue. Great deal!
We stay brand loyal to Kleenex and then reuse the boxes in inventive ways. It’s amazing how imaginative kids can get with an empty box and some craft supplies!
Inspired by my kiddos, I used one of our empty Kleenex boxes to create a “rewards box” for my girls. It’s especially useful with my preschooler, who is just starting school this year. I really want to encourage good behavior and habits with her.
The concept is so simple. Open the side of the Kleenex box, add little inexpensive trinkets (age appropriate, of course), and seal it back up.
You can then decorate the outside of the box, or have the kiddos do it!
It’s so simple, but seriously effective… have the kids pick a trinket every time they show good behavior or a make a series of good choices. You could even come up with tally system or do points for this. Whatever works best for your family. Keep it simple, so it works for you!
Kids can pick a trinket they have their eye on, or for a fun surprise– hold the box high & have them choose sight-unseen. They could even pick the little rewards in the store themselves. Very motivating!
I know this rewards box has been a big hit in our house, and I hope it makes back-to-school time go a little smoother for your family too!
All of our school essentials, including Kleenex and other paper products, are found at Walmart. Since these products are on everybody’s back-to-school shopping list, let’s be a hero and save!
