Accountable Kids

I started this program with Henry a few months back. Its a chore chart/behavior chart that Henry is primarily responsible for. As he works through his daily items (brush teeth, breakfast, school, lunch, quiet time, etc) he flips them over. He can earn up to 3 tickets a day which is turned in for a "Bonus Buck". He can lose a tickets too and knows why he lost his ticket without whining or crying. Immediate consequences have helped with the whines/fighting/crap all over the place.

I was able to pick up Chart for Nico this weekend at the MS Crop. He was beyond happy to get his own chore chart & tickets. He chose coral puffy letters & helped to put it together.

I also picked up a "cards & ticket" hanger, it holds extra cards & tickets so they are up above the charts.

One of the fall festival projects - crappy picture. Canvas placemat, crackle paint, Glimmer Mist, Stickles, Quickutz diecuts, stamps, Dabbers, Distressing Inks - very messy & lots of fun.
Picture box with lots of doo-dads.

Den boys

Had a den meeting last night with 6 boys who were eager to get crafty. I started a bead totem for the boys to earn beads for coming to den & pack meetings, bringing their tiger book & wearing their specified uniform (shirt, necker, slide, belt & patches).

Each boy designed his own lead and is responsible for adding his beads after the meetings.

I also put together a 'den doodle' using what else...scrapbook goodies. Quickutz letters, MM paints, Bazzill cardstock & ribbon.
